I’ve been thinking a lot about what my next big goal is now that I’ve run my fall goal race (the Navy Air Force Half – if you haven’t read that recap yet, go check it out). I am currently signed up for the following races:
- Clarendon Day 5k and 10k on September 27. This is a double, where I will run the 5k at 8am and then the 10k at 9am. I ran it last year and while it’s hard running two races back to back it’s really fun. This year will be extra awesome since we’re having a little Oiselle meetup and brunch that day. Y’all know how I feel about bacon post run!
- Richmond Half Marathon on November 15. Right now I’m signed up for the half, while K is running the full…however…
Decisions, decisions! I’m currently debating switching to the full in Richmond or signing up for the Rehoboth Beach Marathon December 6th. I originally wanted to run the half in Richmond so I could support K (who is running it as his first full marathon) but he doesn’t mind if I decide to race the full, so I have permission to sign up for that if I want. The advantages of Richmond are that it doesn’t require an extra trip (we’ve already planned for and budgeted for this one) and I know and LOVE the course. It would be awesome to finish 2013 with the marathon that was my first.
The advantages of the Rehoboth Marathon are that I could really race the half in Richmond and try to go sub 2 since I’m so close right now. Also, I could jump in with K as he finishes the marathon, which was the original goal. Also, running Rehoboth gives me a couple more weeks to train. I’m torn!
I have a little while to decide but I’m going to force myself to make a decision by the end of the week. I think I know which way I’m leaning so be on the lookout for my announcement soon!
What’s next on your schedule?
