Happy New Year friends! I’ve mentioned before that I’m not big on resolutions for New Years, but there’s nothing wrong with setting some goals for the upcoming year. I really got back into running 5ks last year, I did 4. But I wanted to commit to consistently running throughout 2015, so I decided to commit to doing one race a month. That’ll get me outside and running at least a couple times a month and help me maintain a running fitness base. I’ve had fun going through all the local 5Ks and adding some new ones to the race calendar as well as some ones I’ve done in the past.
Here’s the tentative plan:
January- The Groundhog Run
This one is indoors, perfect!
February- Mardi Gras 5K
It was between this one and the Sweetheart Run on the same day. The late start (10 am) and non-cheesiness won out.
I’m torn between a late start (10 am) with beer afterwards or a smaller race with brunch afterwards…
April- Rock the Parkway
A huge run on Ward Parkway that goes along with a half marathon.
Not a lot of races have been announced for May yet.
June- Midnight 5K Run for Special Olympics
I did this one last year and its always fun to run at night.
A fun way to start off the 4th! (And one of three races I’ll be running on Ward Parkway this year, its a great course!)
Nothing announced on the race calendar yet
September- Sacred Steps 5k
October- John Glaser Memorial 5K
If they do this one again, it will be my October one
November- Ward Parkway Thanksgiving 5K
Now a yearly tradition with the family and they always have the best shirts!
December- Santa Dash 5K
I will run in the cold, but I draw the line at dressing up like Santa…
What races do you have planned for 2015? What are your goals for this year?
