I've been thinking a lot about my 2013 races: researching, planning, researching more, scrapping plans, re-planning . . . now, two weeks in to 2013, I believe it is time to commit.
To a few races, at least.
So here's the plan:
Bill Hogan 3.5 race (New Year's Day) -- done
Sandy Hook 5K -- tomorrow
Winter Marathon Relay
Runnin' of the Green (Island) 4 mile
More/Fitness Half Marathon (in NYC)
Freihofer's Run for Women 5K
Clove Run 10 mile
Mohawk Hudson River Marathon
Looks like I'm going to stick with a spring half marathon and a fall full. It is a conservative, doable plan that should allow me to go into the marathon healthy and with a good shot at running a PR.
I'll probably add a few races to the mix, like a 5K here or there or maybe a trail run in the summer. But for now I'm going to focus on laying out a training plan with the fall marathon as my big "A race" target.
Even though the marathon will be the big race for me, I do have my sights set on lowering my 5K PR and, depending on how my winter running goes, lowering my half marathon PR as well. I'll decide on that in about a month.
So, there you have it. My 2013 race schedule . . . so far!
Have a good weekend, everyone!
