Today I participated in the 27th Annual Canton Fall Classic.   The event offered a variety of races that included a 5k, 10k, kid’s fun run and a Senior Walk.  I wanted to participate in today’s events because I heard from other runners that it was   one of the South Shore’s best event.      Today, I ran the 5k.

It was a perfect morning for a race. More than 400 runners participated in the 5K, 10K, Fun Run and Senior Walk.   Temple Beth Abraham hosted the 27th running of the Canton Fall Classic.

The race was challenging and scenic.  The course was surprisingly hilly, but I guess running hills has many benefits.  The first mile had a few small rolling hills.  The second mile of the 5k was all uphill.    The last mile was downhill to the finish.


Last week my running schedule looked like:



Monday 13 miles on a treadmill, running to music by Kenny Rogers, and a success


It was an excellent run.   Water, snacks, a fan, comfortable environment to run in, I was ready to run.  Kenny Rogers music was the theme for my playlist this week.  Love old country!

My plan was to run 11 miles, but once I reached   the 11-mile mark, I decided to keep running to complete a Half Marathon on a treadmill.


Tuesday 6 miles

Sunday     3 miles
