So many of you already have plenty of plans for 2010. I still haven't decided what I want to focus on this year. Running? Triathlon? Cycling? Swimming?
Running seems to make me happiest, so I think for the part of the year, that is what I would like to keep my sights on. After that, I may change focus to triathlon. Or not. I'll decide later.
So with running as my short term focus, I figured I should sign up for local mid Jan race that I mentioned that I was interested in, right?
That is what I set out to do this morning when I found this message on their website:
"THE FULL CIRCLE ROUNDUP HAS BEEN POSTPONED AND WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR A LATER DATE IN SPRING/SUMMER OF 2010."
I guess I'll just consider that one more race fee saved and move on to trying to find some events over the next few months.
In Feb, a few options are a Superbowl Run on the 7th (that raises money for the homeless) or the Sweetheart Run on the 14th. Either of those would be fun. The superbowl run starts at 11am, which means it should be warmer. That might be the deciding factor. No need to sign up for either for a few weeks, so I can decide later.
In March, there is a 10 mile run that really looks appealling. However, it is on a weekend that I'll probably be away on vacation. And quite frankly, I'd rather go on vacation. I'm silly like that.
Then in April, on the 17th, there is a local half-marathon. Realistically, this is probably not a good idea. The last half-marathon really took a toll on my body. Yet somehow the idea of getting myself in shape for a spring half-marathon is rather appealling to me. I can't get it out of my head that this is the event I want to target for the first part of the year.
What do you think? Good idea? or evidence that I have short term memory?
Friday - 3mi easy
Saturday - 4.1 miles easy
