I love to research. All of my friends know that if they need an electrician or a particular baby product or want to vacation in a certain spot, all they have to do is ask. If I don’t already have an answer because we’ve needed the information, I’m likely to be willing to do their research for them. (I was, afterall, a research librarian before I started this mom gig).
So, here I sit in front of the computer. I have a U.S. atlas on one side of me, our calendar on the other, and “Running in the USA” website open on the computer. This year, we have a fair number of “required” travel: TX in January (same weekend as the Houston Half, but it’s full and it’s a little too far from where we are going), probably Key West in early April (so far all I’ve found is 5Ks), Maine in the summer (right now I’m looking at the Beach to Beacon 10k), Wisconsin in the summer (I’m sure I can find something, I just have no idea of our travel dates) and then Minnesota in October (I can’t remember the weekend, but I saw a couple of cool looking races). Hopefully, I can knock out at least two states this year that way. Any other states I manage will have to be much more short term notice and/or nearby. Pennsylvania and Delaware should be doable this year.
So, what’s your favorite website for race listings and is there a “must do” race in your state (not a marathon, though)?
3.5 miles on the treadmill today, so only 46.5 left to go! Part of me would like to just do a couple of 20 milers and get it done already LOL.
