After talking yesterday about wanting to set up a new training plan, but not having a goal race in mind, I decided to sit down and attempt to map out this year’s running events. I try to average one race a month, so with it now being the end of March, it’s probably time to think more comprehensively about the year in running for me.
I didn’t run races in January or February. The weather here was just too terrible.
3/15 NYC Half Marathon
3/28 Sandy Hook 5K
April is tough. I plan on traveling while my kids are on break so that takes out one weekend, and Easter takes out a second. I’m looking at either:
4/25: Maren Sanchez Memorial 5K
4/26 Minuteman 10K
5/9: Mother’s Day 10K
5/24: Bridgeport Hospital Home Run 5K6
6/27: Stratton Faxon 5K
6/28: Stratton Faxon Half Marathon
7/24: Trumbull Sunset Run 5K
8/30: Women’s Triathlon (!!)
9/21: Fall Distance Festival either the 10K or 20K
10/4: 4 Mile Trail Race
11/7: Vicki Soto 5K
11/26: Thanksgiving 5 Miler
12/12: Christmas Village 5K
Yes, I did throw in another half as a possibility. I ran that one last year, so I know I can do it. I’m not sure I’m up for it, so it’s a possible. I do like the idea of the 20K in September, that’s a long range goal and I know it’s doable (weather will be better then too).
I also have a Triathlon in the mix for August. A group of women and I are going to train for this one together. I am not sure about it at all, but I’ve committed so I will get there. I have no idea how that will go at all.
There it is, my goal races for the year. Guess it’s time to start signing up for some of these!
