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).

Other options:


Update: I somehow forgot to link the Roar for Autism here. My mistake.

About Exercists
Andrea Siegel, a reporter at The Baltimore Sun, covers mostly crime and courts in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County, as well as legal issues. She wishes she was more physically fit, and, as she's more fond of chocolate than exercise, fitness is a challenge. Her partner on a one-mile-plus daily walk is the family dog, a mixed breed named Moxie, and she exercises at the gym where the D.C. snipers once worked out.
Jerry Jackson has been a photo editor at The Baltimore Sun for 14 years and an avid cyclist for more than 30 years. Inspired by the movie "Breaking Away," he started racing as a teenager in Mississippi when leather "brain baskets" were still the norm. He regularly commutes to work by bike and still enters several mountain bike races a year for fun.

Patrick Maynard, who will be writing about running and walking, has been a producer for since 2008. In 2009, he tweeted on-course for the Sun from the Baltimore Marathon, finishing in just under 4 hours and almost managing to run the whole time. He sometimes walks to the Sun offices on Calvert Street.

Leeann Adams, a multimedia editor at The Baltimore Sun, also dabbles in content for the mobile website and iPhone app and covers the Ravens via video. She did a triathlon to celebrate her 40th birthday and continues to swim, bike and run -- none of them quickly, though. Her biggest fitness challenge is to balance working, working out, spending time with her husband and being a mom to a 6-year-old boy.

Anica Butler, the Sun's crime editor, is a former high school runner and recovering vegetarian who spent more of her early-adult years on a bar stool than working out. She is currently training (though poorly) for a half marathon and is trying to live a generally healthier lifestyle. She also hates the gym.
