PEI RoadRunners April Schedule

I slept in this morning. It will be the last time I'll be sleeping in on a Saturday morning for a long time - the PEI RoadRunners race schedule gets underway in earnest next Saturday morning. Alex will be running almost every weekend from now until October, sometimes twice a weekend.

A major dilemma lies ahead on July 26th when both the Cox & Palmer Run in Charlottetown and the Potato Blossom Festival Run at the Mill River Resort in Woodstock both start at 9am. He has run the Potato Blossom Festival run since 2004 and greatly enjoyed the first running of the Cox & Palmer run last year. It will be interesting to see which one he chooses.

This year, April in fact, he's hoping to run his first race on the mainland. We nearly made it last year and again this year the Grande-Digue 15K is on our calendar. Race organizer, Sylvio Bourke, goes all out in putting on this race and I'm hoping nothing prevents us from attending this year. Sylvio should be over here to run one of our races before his race on the 27th.

Here's what's on the PEI RoadRunners April Schedule:
