A Race is on the Calendar! Finally!

It was high time I did something for my motivation to get out and run. As you can see by my training chart, there has been very little of that as of late:

I haven't scheduled any races between now and then, though it might make sense to do so. Race-specific training will be my focus, with hills being the front and center. In case you haven't seen the elevation chart for the race...
