I recently created a spreadsheet to list out the races I’m hoping to complete in 2015 – for budgeting and planning purposes mostly. Also because I do love me some Google Spreadsheets.
So I figured to get back in my blogging swing, I’d share five 2015 races I’m pumped about!
1. St. Michaels Half Marathon
Would you believe me if I said I haven’t run a half marathon since before I was pregnant with Ethan? I registered for two – DNS’ed Baltimore Half in 2014 after deferring in 2013. I also registered for the Zooma Half in June 2014 but dropped to the 10k. I’m really looking forward to the St. Michaels Half – I’ve heard great things about it and have heard it’s prime for PR’s – I’m chasing a sub 2:15 half so I’m hoping this is the course for it.
2. Iron Girl Columbia
I registered for this one the day it opened – I’ve heard fantastic things and I’m really looking forward to more tri’s this year so I’m pumped to have this on my calendar!
3. Across the Bay 10k
I LOVED this race this year and while I bought someone’s bib off them at the last minute, I wasn’t officially registered. This year, I’m going to officially register and get it done. It’s ripe for a PR since the 2nd half is largely downhill so if I train right, I want to chase that sub 1 hour 10k.
4. A TBD Metric Century OR Century Ride
Originally, I had planned on the Bike to Beach Century from Baltimore to Dewey. Unfortunately, hubs has drill but I’m still on the prowl for a metric or full century ride. I was stoked to receive a bike trainer under the tree at Christmas and I have a plan for a long distance ride like this which relates to my goal/plan of doing a Half Ironman in 2016. I’m just still researching which one I want to do that’s not too far from home, not SUPER hilly, and fits into my summer/fall schedule.
5. Maryland Olympic Duathlon
I’ve never done a Du but I’m pretty excited for this one since I have it on my list of 2015 Fitness goals to do an Olympic Tri but even if I don’t find the right Olympic Tri, I think an Olympic Du would be a lot of fun (swimming is my least strongest sport so this might work out well!)
What races are you looking forward to in 2015?
