1. Kaiser Half Marathon - February 3, 2013 - San Francisco, CA
This race is supposed to be fun and fast. I have not run a half-marathon since last year at this time. That race was in Davis and I missed a PR by a minute and a few seconds. I was also easily 10 pounds heavier and not as fast. This is the race I break 1:45 if not faster than that. Come on by and ring a cow bell, then watch the Super Bowl.
I will either be running the full or the half marathon in Oakland. I won't make that choice until December 31st but I will be racing this race. I didn't race enough this past year and I really want to race more. It makes it more fun. Yay fun!
While it would be great to knock out another marathon, I honestly can say that I would be fine doing the half. I have never run a half as part of a full. That will be interesting...I think. More to come on this one.
3. Bulldog 25K - August 24, 2013 - Malibu Creek State Park, CA
This is a solid maybe, but it seems like fun. I am not going to run my first ultra in Southern California in August. That seems silly. But a 25K seems like a great idea. 15+ miles on trails will be a great way to spend a summer morning.
4. Catch the Road Runner 5K - Summer 2013 - San Francisco, CA
The fantastic San Francisco Road Runners Club will be putting on our second annual 5K race...it might change a little due to the America's Cup and other such craziness but it is on! I might run, I might work the race, I might do both...but I will be there and I will wear my pants.
|So hot right now.|
5A. The Tulsa Turkey Trot - Black Friday, 2013
I must defend my First Place Fat Boy title! Hopefully I will be able to keep off the extra seven pounds I have dropped since I started paying more attention (read: I am no longer a horse). In that I am under the 200lb mark, I will not enter as a Clydesdale but I am hoping my new age group will help me move up in the age group prizes.
