8 miles done this morning in the straight up fog…the roads were nice and quiet though. We have some warmer temps coming in the next day or so…(highs in the 60s today!) so I am looking forward to the sunshine.
So I have a few races up my sleeve for 2016! I’m looking forward to lots of fun opportunities to rock it out on the roads…here’s what’s on tap in the next few months.
–Jan 31st- Too Cold to Hold Half Marathon / Dallas, TX…this race I have not yet run before but it’s a part of a fun series that I’ve done with the Run Project. They have a great race in the summertme…the Too Hot to Handle 15k. I loved that one! So the half should be a good one and I’m hoping for some fast running.
–Feb 6th- Dash for the Beads 5k / Oak Cliff, TX This one is located in one of my favorite neighborhoods, the Bishop Arts District. Plus there will be plenty of Mardi Gras themed fun! Yes…that is one of my most favorite holidays. I ran this one last year and it’s a very hilly challenging course. I’m hoping to beat my time from 2015.
Those of you that are local you can purchase the Groupon here..$18 for a 5k is quite the steal!
I am digging my mismatched compression socks.
–Feb 21st- HEB Alamo Half Marathon / San Antonio, TX- I received an opportunity through the Marathon Maniacs to be an official pacer for this race so I’m really looking forward to that! Being a pacer is such a rewarding experience…I’ve paced 2:00 and 1:55 groups in the past. Can’t wait to meet some more crazies like myself and help some runners reach their goals.
–Feb 28th- Cowtown 50k / Ft. Worth, TX- This will be my 2nd 50k, dipping my feet back into the ultra pond and I definitely am ready for the challenge! I love this race because they offer so many distances throughout the race weekend and the course is absolutely beautiful.
–March 20th- Rock n Roll Dallas Half Marathon / Dallas, TX- This is definitely one of my favorite half marathons…bands all along the way and running in my hometown! Plus I love shopping at their health and fitness expo. I am praying for some good weather.
What races do you have on tap? Is anyone running a spring/summer marathon?
The Rock n Roll San Diego Marathon in June!
