January means that I can start putting together my race schedule for the upcoming months. I have a rather large goal to run a full marathon in 2014.
Someone told me that it would be perfect to call it “Run 26 for year 26!”
Duh, what a magnificent idea!!
Since I turn 26 years old in 2014, running 26.2 miles would be perfect way to celebrate. Last year, I did the Beaver Lake Triathlon on my 25th Birthday and I felt unbelievably accomplished that day. It had been ten years since I did my first Triathlon at age 15.
I am still on the fence as to which Marathon I will run this year, but I have a list of other races that I will attempt to conquer in 2014.
2014 RACE ‘SCHEDULE’
Lake Sammamish Half 3/8/14
Mercer Island Half 3/23/14
Rock n Roll Marathon (or half) 6/21/14
Tacoma Narrows Half 8/2/14
Seaweeze Half 8/23/14
Labor Day Half 9/1/14- Loved this race last year.
I know I’ll be throwing in some 10k and 5ks too. Speaking of which, I need some races in May, June and July.
I am bouncing around the idea of doing the Rock n Roll Marathon on June 21, 2014. If I decide not to do the full, then I will do the half. Then there is the Eugene Marathon and Portland Marathon.
There are too many marathon choices and I want to make sure that I choose the best one to be my “first.” This is something that I will look back on in years to come. This is serious business people. Any recommendations? Help a girl out!
