Back in December, I drafted a list of races I wanted to run in 2013. I knew I wouldn’t run all of them but it was a skeleton plan for me to tweak as the year went on. I’ve run several of those races and it’s been a fantastic first six months running in 2013! I’m so grateful! These are my plans for the second half, as much as I can plan.
My first trail half-marathon, the Crystal Springs Half in Huddart Park. For fun, no time expectations at all! Best of all, my parents will be at the finish line! Already beside myself with excitement about this race.
1) Dependent on plans with visiting family, the Point Pinole Half Marathon as a last long training run.
2) Half Moon Bay Half-Marathon. This is going to be awesome because the Husband is running it, my friend Juli is running it and two other friends are doing it too. In addition, Bean is being very brave and coming to stay with a total stranger from the internet (ie: me) and is running the full marathon. So 29th September is circled three times on my calendar. Dependent on training, I might have a stab at 1.52 🙂
I’m planning a four-day bike tour somewhere not cold 😉
The 10k at the inaugural Berkeley Half, going for a PR. I actually don’t know my 10k PR. It was something like 58 mins and I ran 10ks before I started Marathon training, so back in the Dark Ages before my 8 year break from running. I ran a 10k in Dec 2010 in 1.06 so am confident I can beat that!!
And of course, the traditional Ramsden Turkey Trot. If you’re local…join us!
A 5k, going for PR. Not sure what that will be yet.
Anyone doing any of these? Anything I should be signing up for? Can’t wait – really excited about it.
