So many races, so little time and money. If I could, I’d race all.the.time. Oh wait, I kind of do… I’m also really really tired – ran New Hampshire today and then drove all over Vermont with visits to Harpoon Brewing, Rock Art Brewing, and Ben and Jerry’s.
Today’s topic for Tuesdays on the Run is whether you only do a race once or if you go back to the same ones over and over again. Personally, I have kind of a split personality. I have a small number of races that I like to race each year: ZOOMA, Frederick Half Marathon, 17.75K, and Marine Corps Marathon. There are also a few that I tend to run somewhat regularly if they align with my schedule: RNR DC, Army 10 Miler, Historic Half.
Other than those few though, I try to run all new races, unless you consider the Mainly Marathons races repeats. I’ve done 5-7 of those a year for the last 4 years. I’m actually not sure when I’ll do my next series with them, so I’m feeling a bit bittersweet. But, after this series, I have 3 new races to do and then I’ll have 16 states left! Guess where all of my money will be going LOL…
So, what about you? Are you always searching for something new or do you like the tried and true?
