So… with Grandma’s Marathon less than two weeks away, it is about that time to start looking to what the next half of the year has to offer me in the realm of road races.
My goal is to run 23 races this year. Without burning out or getting injured. Wish me luck, I’m gonna need plenty of it.
I have listed my races so far this year and ones I plan on running in order to accomplish my goal of racing 23 times in 2012.
Such a long road ahead. So many miles to cover. BUT…
I am excited. Races are fun, yet challenging and also give me a good idea of where I am at, how far I have come and just how much harder I have to work.
I have already had such a blast running this year and I don’t wanna put my dream on pause.
Every finish line is a beginning of a new race.
The moment I qualify for Boston will be all so worth it because I will make my journey one that I will never forget.
I am so blessed to be able to have a dream that my friends and family support me in and one that I am oh so driven to make happen.
I love my life…almost as much as I love running.
Here is the list I have so far. I will be editing and adding to it as they happen and I find out about more races down the road.
