Goodbye January, hello busiest month ever. February 2011 is not for the faint of heart, but I couldn’t be more excited as it kicks off my race schedule for 2011 and has some very exciting surprises in store. But before I spill the surprise secrets, I thought now would be better than ever to share my 2011 races schedule (thus far) and see who else will be there.
Surf City Half Marathon: February 6, 2011
Why hello first race of the season…you’re this weekend! I’m looking forward to heading down south to see Danica, Maritza, Tara and the whole gang as I add this race to the roster. I may or may not be doing this race solely for the incredibly adorable surf board medals and because it’s part of the California Dreaming series.
Oakland Half Marathon: March 27, 2011
Did you know that Active.com now has a Groupon-like feature? Heck yes it does! It’s called Schwaggle and is the reason I scored $50 entry to this race. I love a good deal!
Boston Marathon: April 18, 2011
Big Sur Marathon (The Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge): May 1, 2011
I’m still not sure how I’m going to make it alive, but as we all know, I love a good challenge. Here’s to the beautiful views, time with friends and some extra race bling blang.
The SF Marathon: July 31, 2011
For more reasons than you would care that I explain…the SF marathon in July! The hills, the fog, the rain…everything makes me so excited for this race! I better see all of you out on the hills with me then!
In 2010 I got a bit race happy and while racing included some of my favorite memories from the year, my wallet felt the pain. Couple that with a wedding and you can see how it’s become a priority for me to only sign up for races that I really want to run in…not just because they’re having a race.
So there we are (thus far) folks; one race a month for the next four months. However, I would love to continue racing once a month to keep the energy alive. What races do you recommend for June, July and August? Will I be able to see any of your smiling faces at the races above?
Day 36: Had to leave for the office at 5:45 this morning. Will try and get in 7 mi. tonight….
