I live in Pittsburgh, and one of my favorite races here is the Great Race. It's a 10K that travels through a number of neighborhoods and ends downtown. I skipped it last year but am back now. I started training today, and it turns out that I'm pretty out of shape. I'm just going to have to get back into the groove. Plus, I'll try not to worry about my time (which is SUPER hard for me) and just enjoy the experience of running the race. After all, they do give you Smiley cookies (a local delicacy) as your reward at the end. How do all of you feel about road races? What's your favorite? I prefer to run in my hometown -- although I also enjoy traveling to Chicago for races because I used to live there too.
