Last year, I had my 2014 race plan all mapped out in advance. Of the 13 races I said I would run, I ran 6 so the clear learning is…let’s not make too many plans too far in advance.
Whatever! Let’s make too many plans too far in advance!
All these are signed up for. Money has been handed over.
January: 10k, Race To End World Hunger, Mountain View. Done!
February: 1/2M Kaiser Half Marathon, San Francisco.
March: Red Rock Canyon 1/2M , Las Vegas.
Then I launch ‘The Spring of 10ks’ 🙂 My college courses are likely to be pretty full-on by now, so I’m going to scale down the distances and try and improve my 10k.
March: Oakland Marathon Relay – I’ll be running one leg of roughly 6.5 miles.
April: Road 10k. Maybe Santa Cruz?
May: Trail 10k. Maybe Wild Cat Canyon. I have a Brazen credit and I want to use it!
June: Road 10k. And maybe a trail 10k at the Truckee Running Festival because I’m crazy in love with that little mountain town. And no-one needs oxygen anyway!
The one big race I want to do this year is Berry Creek. This was the race I wanted to run in 2014 but it clashed with one of the Husband’s Ironman test races. This year, I’m definitely in.
July: 5k PR attempt. Redwood City Parade Run 5k – without the Dude in the stroller!
July: Berry Creek Falls 15k or 25k, Big Basin. Prob the 25k 🙂
August: Trail 10k
To end the year, I’ve got some big Autumn plans.
September: A Century Bike Ride. Maybe the Tour d’Organics in Sebastopol?
October: Half Marathon PR attempt, Healdsburg
November: Trail 10k
December: TNF Endurance Challenge. This is a massive deal locally, our big trail race and loads of amazing runners turn up to run it. I’d either do the half-marathon or the marathon relay if I can find a buddy. I just want to be a part of it!
Clearly, this will change. You can never predict what a year will bring but I firmly believe that a girl needs a plan. So this is mine!
