Weekly walking/running roundup
What I’m doing: Training (but not too much).
Why: The Cleveland Marathon is two weeks away, so I'm winding down my mileage (and none too soon -- I've sort of done the opposite of the Hansons' plan, so my distance days have been a bit ridiculous lately.)
What else I recommend: This is a good week for fans of running in eastern Pennsylvania. The two biggest events outside of the Philadelphia Marathon are arguably the Broad Street run -- sold out and scheduled for Sunday -- and the Penn Relays (on which I'm tweeting occasionally here). If you'd rather go south than north but still want a long Sunday race, the Potomac River Run Marathon is a closer-to-home choice (all links after the jump).
Update: I somehow forgot to link the Roar for Autism here. My mistake.
