I was thinking about my running career A LOT over the last couple days. And I attribute it to some of the many bloggers that I read that complete marathons all the time..and especially the ones that completed the Walt Disney Marathon this past weekend. Of course I see so many bloggers talk about their experiences of marathons, but having at least 5 bloggers be there and share there running stories was awesome.
So this got me thinking…I want to plan my races..at least my major races…so I did and this is what I have come up with…These will all be my races for the next two years, unless something unforeseeable happens in the future: Like my knee breaks..or the registration gets sold out (the last one on this list usually sells out in an hour..I’ll sit at my computer for hours waiting and hopefully I get in).
My Running Future 2013-2014:
March 2013- Rock and Roll USA Half Marathon
April 2013- Cherry Blossom 10 miler
June 2013- Alexandria Running Festival Half Marathon
October 2013- Wilson Bridge Half Marathon (since we deferred from 2012)
October 2014- MCM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes Ladies and Gentlemen I’ve decided to run my first Marathon in 2014!!! I know its a long way off…but I want to put pen to paper (or in this case fingers to keyboard) to make sure I do it. And now that I’ve declared it to my readers, I HAVE to do it. It’s perfect because it will be after completing 6 half marathons (if all goes well!). I can’t believe I’m going to do this…ahhhh!!!!
I’ve read so many first time marathon posts..any advice for this far in advance?
