Last week, we asked what fun running plans you had in store for the fall. We thank everyone who shared his or her plans. Go check out other reader’s plans and add your own. Aside from running, fall is also a time to reminisce about the great times had over the summer. That’s why we’re asking you to share your best summer running memory with us. It could be an entire road trip with your family/buddies, a race that you’ll always remember, or singular magic moment out on the trail. (Feel free to link to a report when leaving a comment, but be sure to write a bit about your experience IN the comment so people will know what you’re talking about!) We’ll share some of our favorite comments in the main post.

While we’re inviting you to reminisce about your summer, we will, too. After a month back at iRunFar’s stationary headquarters in the Sierra foothills, it’s finally time to fill you in about the iRunFar Summer Road Trip! We don’t want to bore everyone to death, so we’d love to know what you’d like to hear about the most.

  • A revised itinerary?
  • Races run?
  • Races watched?
  • Other cool trails run?
  • The non-running gear that made it happen?
  • Gear we saw along the way?

Let us know and we’ll try to cover it next week.
