First of all I just wanted to give a shout out and huge THANK YOU to you all for your support…I seriously could not have asked for a better race day this past Sunday! For those of you that missed it, you can check out my Cowtown 50k recap here. That race really gave me huge confidence when it comes to ultras and I’m really looking forward to having some more great races this year. I will be taking the next few weeks to recover, do some easy running and then slowly ramping some miles/speed back up for upcoming races!
This pic was actually from Rock n Roll Dallas…but it’s my favorite. I’m waving hello to you!
So…here’s what we’ve got on tap for spring and summer.
-March 19th and 20th- My next race weekend will be Rock n Roll Dallas! In honor of St. Patty’s Day I’ll be running the Dash Down Greenville first on Saturday morning (5k) and then RnR Dallas (13.1) on Sunday.
Yes…preferably with my shamrock socks on. They just make things more festive.
It should be a good time to play around with speed for a bit! I really do love the half distance because I have done so many that at this point I can recover quickly and move on to bigger things. Plus this race is usually a good one with some rolling hills. And yes…I actually do love hills! Win win.
-April 16th- I’ll be PACING the Irving Marathon right in my own backyard! I am hoping we get some decent weather…this time of year is fairly unpredictable. But I love running in my ‘hood and representing the Irving Running Club.
-May 7th- The Irving Marathon will be part of my training leading up to this big kahuna! The Hachie 50 out in Waxahachie, TX. Very excited for this one…again we will see if Texas weather behaves! This course will be mostly paved, part trail and super flat. Perfect for my first 50 mile race. I will walk the whole thing if I have to. Ha!
-June 5th- Rock n Roll San Diego. Absolutely love this course…I ran it a couple of years ago. Can’t wait to get back out to Cali.
That’s all for now! Stay tuned…and happy training!
What races do you have on tap for spring and summer? Any ultras?
