So it seems every other month is a little ambitious for traveling distances. New yearly goal will be to cross off three more states: one a weekend’s distance, one a little farther (east coast), and one out west. Still hoping for Vicksburg MS in a few weeks, and then found the “finish for a guinness” race in Rhode Island, near Horseneck beach in MA, which happens to be a place I wanted to go for Labor Day last year! May not get out west due to the Africa trip, but setting the goal for a half-marathon next March (Snake River or Red Rocks, I think!)
AND, I didn’t get into the Broad Street Run this year. WTF. I didn’t even know it opened and it was closed!! haha. Will have to go and cheer, I guess!
Mount Snow Triathlon — Sprint distance, early August
Finish For a Guiness — Labor Day Weekend, 2011? Rhode Island
Saguaro National Park 8 mile run, Labor Day Weekend
Finished my first full 5K last night, spurred on by “Thriller” (as I’m running in the dark, in the woods….it was creepy and hilarious) And so I’m ready for the Hero to Heroes run on October 9. As I was looking for other races, I came across a thing on Running in the USA for a “50 states gadget.” It’s meant for marathoners, but I thought why not? So my new goal is a 5K or 10K in every state, at least once per month in the next year! Let’s see….
October 9: Heroes to Hero — NJ
November 14: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Lemon Run — PA
December 18: Lookout Mountain 10k (First 10k!) — TN
January 1: Lowell 1st Run New Year’s Day! — MA
February 12: Cupid’s Chase — NY (Manhattan!)
March 5: Run Through History, Vicksburg National Military Park — MS
April 30: Trail Triple Crown at White Clay Creek (trail run! only doing the 5k though, not the triple crown!) — DE
May: Broad Street?? Will I really be ready to run 10 miles?
September: ING Half Marathon??
Have to find a few more, but that’s a good start. Anybody want to go with me? 🙂
