So, big news: I have FINALLY figured out my race calendar until the end of this year!
It goes a little something like this:
October 14, Tampa Hoofin’ it 5K with my daughter and her soccer pals! Can’t wait for this fun hometown race.
November 5th, the Fort Myers Marathon. Hoping for under 5, but really just want to run and enjoy. My mom and I will be relaxing near the water after the race. Looking very forward to this race!
December 17, Hot Chocolate 15K Tampa. Goal: 9:45 minute miles. I know, it’s not speedy fast, but it’s fast for me! You can join me, too! Hurry, though, there is a price increase on October 8th. Use code BRHCTAMPA17 to get a bonus baseball cap!
December 22 or 23. Now, this one is up in the air and depends on how November 5th goes. Knowing that I want to do a 50K in January, I’d like to do a second marathon before the end of the year, and Ocala puts on the Savage Seven. I’m aiming to hit one of those (NOT all 7, or even 2!), to prepare for the 50K..
January 21, my GOAL race, a 50K! I wanted to do this last year at Croom but couldn’t get it done. I’ve run the Clearwater Distance Classic a few times and love the race. It’s close, it’s fun, it’s easy to get into and out of, and it has pretty views. Bridges, yes, which is rough for me, and it is road running instead of a trail 50K, BUT my plan is to take it easy and just get it done.
So . . . that’s my plan through the end of January. I’m interested in also doing Gasparilla in February and the Treasure Coast Marathon (or half) in March, which would end the running season for me!
Are you running any of these races? If so, let me know!
