Run 10 Feed 10 10k Training Plan

Fall is my favorite season to run due to cooler temperatures and the lack of humidity. Now that we have reached mid-September, the number of races I want to run in the coming months keeps getting longer! I have at least two coming up in October – a destination race in Door County {Wisconsin} on October 10th, the Run Wild Quarter Marathon, and the Run 10 Feed 10 10k race in Chicago on October 17th. The Run 10 Feed 10 10k race is one month from today, so I’m sharing my four week 10k training plan that starts tonight.

Run 10 Feed 10 is a partnership with Women’s Health magazine and the FEED Foundation, a non-profit organization fighting hunger and malnutrition around the world. Run 10 Feed 10 races are held in New York City, Chicago and San Francisco. As part of each race registration, ten meals are donated to those going hungry in the local community. The fourth annual Chicago Run 10 Feed 10 10k race takes place at Diversey Harbor on Saturday, October 17th at 8:00 am. I ran this race last year for the first time and loved it {full recap here}.
