There are some great road races happening in the area in the coming weeks!

Running is my favorite exercise activity. It's simple, requires hardly any equipment, and to me...is calming for the body and the soul.

I've run in a handful of 5Ks in the past few years, and hope to hit several more this spring and summer. Here's a list of some that are coming up in Maine and New Hampshire:

Maine

Miles For Smiles 5K

Pine Grove School 5K

Cape Challenge 5K

Twilight 5K

New Hampshire

Run for the Ocean 5K

NH Girls on the Run 5K

Father's Day 5K

And if you're feeling REALLY ambitious...

Midnight Owl 15K
