Thanks for indulging my pity party last week. I’m at a work conference this week, so I will update you next week on how things are going. Until then, here’s my upcoming races!
I’ve made some veiled references here on the blog about training for a half marathon. Well, actually, it’s THREE half marathons!
Space Coast Half Marathon – Cocoa Beach, FL, November 30, 2014
I registered for this one while I was still in a boot. I’ve always wanted to run it, and the 3-year challenge seemed like a good reason. This seems like a good choice because its flat and has a 7 hour course limit. No matter how my training went, I can finish this one. Training started Sept. 1, so I’ll be back to let you know how that went.
Louisiana Quarter Marathon – Baton Rouge, LA, January 17, 2015
I’ve heard great things about the Half and Full in Baton Rouge. This year they added a Quarter Marathon, and we’re going to try to use this to get a good qualifying time for later Disney races.
Gasparilla Half Marathon – Tampa, FL, February 22, 2015
Another one with a generous course limit and a great medal. I can’t decide if this or Space Coast will be my A race. I’m leaning toward this one.
Tinkerbell Half Marathon – Disneyland, CA, May 10, 2015
And so it begins — my journey to the Disney Coast to Coast medal! We’ll complete the challenge in November at the Wine and Dine half. We’re lucky enough to have friends in California that we want to visit this spring, so this fits right in and makes the trip at least somewhat affordable. I seriously can’t wait to do this race!
Training for Space Coast starts this week, and the races are spaced out at almost perfect 12 week intervals, so I’m basically in training from September to May. I plan to take the first 12 pretty easy and make the training tougher for each of the other races. Wish me luck and to keep injury free (hahahaha)!
