Here are my plans for 2011 - at least at this point.
I liked Kerri's goal, of Running for (My) Life, HERE - (I couldn't find the post where she made this comment) of running a race every month of the year. Thanks for the great idea Kerri - hope to see you at some of these.
Freeze for Food 5k - January 22
Valentine's Day 5k - February 12
Shamrock Shuffle 10k - March 13
Black Earth Road Race 10 miler - April 2
Lake Monona 20k - May 7
Madison Marathon 1/2 marathon - May 29
Komen Race for the Cure 5k - June 4
Wannafest 10 miler - July 30
Madison Mini Marathon - August 20
Zoo Run Run 10k - September 25
Haunted Hustle 1/2 marathon - October 29
Turkey Trot 5k - November 6
Berbee Derby 10k - November 24
Jingle Bell run 10K - December 10
(I need to find a couple more biking events - but for now these are making my list.)
Bike New York 42 miles - May 1 (a group of us are planning on driving to NY to bike in this event)
Boys and Girls Club Ride 50 miles - July 16
MS 150 bike ride 2 day 75 miles each day - August 6 & 7
Duathlon - FIRST TIME
This is the only one (at this time) that looks like it will fit into my schedule - but will keep my eyes open for others.
Norski Duathlon - June 11
Scheduling Problems/Decisions -
APRIL: I have run the Crazy Legs run - a local race supporting UW athletics - for a number of years. Last year I couldn't run because I had the stress fracture - this year I won't be able to run it again because we will be in New York City, participating in the Ride New York event. So I had to find another race. Black Earth Road Race, I think Jamie at Running Diva Mom, HERE, ran this last year. So far it is really the only other April race that works for me.
MAY: I can't decide whether to run the 20k around Lake Monona or the Madison Marathon 1/2. I will leave both of them on the schedule - but doubt I will do both. I will look to the advice of Chelsea, of Early Runner, HERE, because she did both of these last year.
