I figured it was time to think about what was going to be after Big Sur and share what I have planned. Maybe you will have a few suggestions too…
May-Big Sur. HELLS YEAH. I may add a 5K or two, depending on how my legs feel.
June-I just signed up for the IronLegs 5K (benefits TNT). I may sign up for the Fathers Day 4 miler later in the month too.
July– The Peachtree Road Race 10K.
August– I want to do the RNR Providence 1/2 marathon. Problem? Needing someone to split the hotel with me. Anyone interested? I could use my hotel points but I would rather save those for Savannah.
Newly added is the Park City 1/2 Marathon on August 20th. My roommates mom was so nice to offer me a free place to stay! UTAH, check. I’m really excited about this trip because it was kinda out of the blue and I never thought about it being an option this year.
September-not sure yet. There will be plenty of 5K and 10K options.
October-Wine Glass Marathon. I will focus on time for this race and will need to work out a plan soon. I may do the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon on October 23. And, if I can find a partner, possibly the Atlanta Marathon Relay on October 30.
November-RNR Savannah 1/2 marathon and the Atlanta Thanksgiving Day 1/2 Marathon.
December-not sure yet.
Here are a few of my thoughts/issues:
I have thought about using the month of May to focus on yoga and strength with some running. But knowing me, I won’t be able to hold off running a lot. Hopefully I will just run without a plan or a schedule.
It is hot in the South in the summer and long races aren’t really an option (unless I missed one that I could drive to). I would love to knock out a few more states this summer but they all involve flying. I do have some Skymiles but when you add the hotel, the flight, food, etc. it’s a lot. BUT I think if I could split some costs it would be easier….if any of you are looking for some race partners this summer please let me know.
I am going to push my body this year and see how much it can handle. I see so many bloggers racing every weekend, so I know its possible. I have a few plans after Big Sur to see a running coach and get a few other things in check so that I can perform at my best. More on that later.
So there it is. A look ahead to the rest of 2011.
Are you running any of these races? Do you have any other suggestions?
