It hasn’t even been a month since my last race and already I have the when-is-my-next-run-blues.
One of the many things I love about running is participating in races. I love the goal-setting, the countdown, the fun of the crowds, running with friends & family, the expos, the training, the pre-race pasta dinner, the post race beer, ahem, picking out my running outfit and the thrill of crossing the finish line – no matter how large or small the race.
I want to do a holiday race but my family’s schedule won’t allow it so it’s a wrap for me until January. I’m getting ready to plan my races out for 2011; there’s already a few I know – I’ll be rockin’ my tiara in February at Disney’s Princess Half Marathon then I’ll trade it in for a warrior helmet in May when I do the Warrior Dash with Husband and some friends. I plan to do a race a month and will tackle my second marathon toward the end of the year. I’m not sure which one yet. Chicago? New York? Savannah? There are so many great ones to choose from.
Anyone have any race suggestions – 5K, 10K, half marathons and “the Big M?” I’d love to hear your input. Oh, and if you’re a race junkie, too, please let me know I’m not suffering from withdrawal alone.
