In my quest to find 1 race a month for 2011 I have nailed down the following races:
January- Coyote Hills 5k
February- Embarcadero 10k
April- Santa Cruz 1/2 Marathon
May- Bay to Breakers 12k
August- Santa Cruz Olympic Triathlon
October- Nike Women’s Half Marathon? (I have to get drawn first…)
As you can see I still have a LOT of months to fill! I’m thinking about doing the KidStrong Turkey Trot 10k again, but that depends on whether I stay in Cali for Turkey or not…Its hard to plan that far ahead!
On another note…as I went to bed last night I realized: When I wake up in the morning, I will be one week from running a race…Perhaps I should start running. I’ve been going to the gym all week, and Monday I ran 3.1 in about 27 minutes…I am a bit off my usual pace, but maybe I’ll just use next week’s race as a ‘kick-in-the-butt’.’ Le sigh. And to think that just 3 months ago I was doing this:
Yikes. I’m gonna need a few months to build back up to that again…:)
But after next week, I think the shortest race I currently have planned is a 10k.
Aaaand…any recommendations for March?! Or, anyone in Cali want to run a race with me in March? I LOVE running buddies – or just knowing that people are running the race with me. It inspires me to keep chuggin’ along.
Or anyone running one of the races I’ve posted above?! If so, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk about a meet-up (and possibly discuss running together, or training together if you’re in my area)!
