So, I’ve started looking at my plans for 2014. In fact, I’ve started registering – 6 already paid for and 1 I’ll be registering for tomorrow.
I’m finding two problems: I’m missing 1 race for the 13 in 79 days (found one) AND I’ll have a race every weekend for 6 weeks. I’m not worried about the physical aspect (I’m good at running races at an easy pace), but can I really commit one morning EVERY weekend in May to running a race. Hmmm… I know I can do 14 in 2014, just have to decide if Venus is worth it.
Here are my tentative races:
March 15, 2014 – Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Registered.
March 30, 2014 – Runners Marathon of Reston (Half )
April 12-16, 2014 – Mainly Marathons Riverboat Series (5 states, 5 days) – Registered!
April 27, 2014 – Iron Girl Columbia Half Marathon – $90
May 4, 2014 – Frederick Half Marathon – register by Feb 28 for $75
May 10, 2014 – Maryland Half Marathon – $75
May 18, 2014 – Marine Corps Historic Half– register on February 19
May 25, 2014? – Alexandria Half– register by January 31
May 31, 2014 – Zooma Half Marathon – Registered
August 16, 2014 – Madison Mini Marathon – Registered, but not part of Venus
October 18, 2014 – Baltimore Running Festival – I got a free entry
(I’ll add links and pricing updates/registration info as I move forward).
On an unrelated note, yesterday was the first day of Elf4Health. The goal was to go meatless. I sort of managed. I totally forgot in the morning and had a couple of pieces of Jones’ sausage. Then I went to make one of our favorite vegetarian soups, Potato Leek (recipe tomorrow), and used chicken broth without even thinking about it. Doh!
At least today is “unsubscribe” day and I have plenty of email lists to dump. ;o)
Have you ever raced a bunch of weekends in a row? Did your family hate you by the end? Do you ever have a meatless day (and are you better at remembering than I am LOL)?
