Oh, hello blog. Sorry, I was just so busy with work this past week, I really just forgot you were here. But I'm back! And the amazing weather this weekend allowed me to run outside and get super excited to set some running goals. I have some races for this year that I would like to run, so maybe I can knock out some of these ambitious running goals I have. Except the marathon. That is not happening this year.
But here's what I think will be happening (A race schedule!!!):
March 16-NIXPO 5K
I'm going to try to get Rand to run this one with me!
March 23-Pitter Pat 10K
This was my first 5K last year that I finished in less than 30 minutes. I finished in a little over 28 minutes, actually. This year I plan to run the 10K. 10K isn't a distance I'm interested in running very often, but I want to try it out.
April 6-The Color Run 5K
This one is just for fun. I will not get a new 5K PR-it's not even timed, but I thought I would put it on here anyway!
April 27-Frisco Highline Railroad Run Half Marathon
I think I can....you see, it was just a month and a half ago my long runs were around 7 miles. And then I got sick, and then it got cold, and then it got harder to run again. Right now, I can run four miles anytime, and I think I could go farther if I pushed hard enough (but I'm afraid of getting hurt) so I'm just going to pick up another half marathon training plan and start at the 5 mile week. I have plenty of time for this if I can stick to a schedule.
May 18-Joplin Memorial Run Half Marathon
May is so perfect for running...so I want to try this one too! We'll see!
June 9-American Red Cross Run for REDiness 5K
My husband loves the Red Cross. Have a mentioned he's a professional lifeguard? If I run this alone I will be trying for a PR in less than 25 minutes. But maybe I can get Rand to run it with me. :)
So there you go. There are always 5K's all over the place, so hopefully I can find one to PR in. But this is the year of longer races for me. I'm so excited!
Are you planning any races for this year?
