I don’t know about you guys, but Memorial Day always feels like the “official” start of summer to me. After running through the polar vortex this winter, running in temperatures above 60 make me feel like I am running through a tropical jungle. But, hey, let’s sign up for some summer races anyway!

Here’s my summer race roundup:

1 Mile

Post-Mile at the Beer Tent. 2013 Harrisburg Mile.
