I am finally narrowing down my race schedule for the year! I’ve decided that I really want to run some new races this year which gives me a few excuses to take some girls weekends too. I’d like to continue to mix up the types and distances of my races so here’s what I have so far.
Cherry Blossom 10 miler-
Although not actually a new race for me, I had to drop out the past 2 years due to injury. I am ready to come back this April and rock the Cherry Blossom race right in my hometown area. I did not do any races longer than a 10k in 2015 so that my foot could heal. I am currently doing one of their virtual training plans and I am happy to be right on schedule for April 3rd.
American Odyssey Relay-
After doing the Ragnar relay twice, our Moms Do It All Night Long team was looking for a new adventure. We will be taking on the 200 mile American Odyssey relay April 29-30th starting in Gettysburg, PA. If the good times we had at Ragnar are any indication, this should be a blast as well. Many of my same team mates are returning but we also have lots of newbies joining us as well. I am really looking forward to this one!
Skirt Sports 13er-
I am pretty sure I am headed out to Boulder on June 12th to meet up with the other Skirt Sports ambassadors and join in on the Skirt Sports 13er race. I am a little nervous about the altitude issues so not sure if I can pull off a half out there. There is also a 5k so I have options. This is in my high probability right now if I can figure out the logistics. I hear Boulder is just gorgeous!
Iron Girl Triathlon-
I will be returning to the Iron Girl triathlon on August 7th in Columbia, MD again this year. I am determined to conquer my fear of that lake and have a much better swim time. Looks like we’ve talked a few more of our friends into joining us this year too and this is my goal tri race this year.
I haven’t signed up quite yet but the Hershey half marathon is on my radar for October 16th. I will run for chocolate! I hear this is a great race and October is such a great running month. Thought it would be a fun girls weekend or I might even let the kiddos tag along with me.
Have you done any of these races? What’s your goal race?
