Posted Nov 11 2008 11:18am

Here are some of the races I'm considering for 2009 & beyond:

1/1/09 - New Year's Day 5K

MARCH 2009:
TBD (probably late March) - Piece of Cake 5K

APRIL 2009:
4/5/09, 7:50 am - Cherry Blossom 10-Miler
4/18/09, 6:30 am - Charlottesville Half Marathon
4/26/09, 8 am - GW Parkway Classic 10-Miler/5K
TBD (probably late April) - Pike's Peek 10K

--OR --
5/3/09, 7 am - Potomac River Run Half Marathon

10/4/09 - Army 10-Miler

TBD (probably early November) - Rockville 5K/10K

TBD (probably early November) - Harrisburg Marathon * (Might run this event as a relay team.)

MARCH 2010:
TBD (probably late March) - Ocean Drive Marathon *
TBD (probably late March) - Shamrock Marathon*

* = Whichever marathon I decide upon (I'm picking just one, in either late 2009 or early 2010), it'll be my very first marathon!


Obviously, the above schedule still needs a bit more fine-tuning, & as it's still fairly early, nothing's been set in stone just yet.

As I continue to build my mileage with the intent of running my first marathon in late 2009 or early 2010, it certainly feels great to be lining up possible venues for next year, & at the same time, to begin thinking about next year's prospects & goals!

So what are your big hopes & dreams for the upcoming year? What are your goals? Are you at the outset of your fitness program (i.e., trying to get back into shape), or have you been working out for a while now & are perhaps looking to set some new PRs?

Have you begun to think about road races for 2009 & if so, what racing events do you plan to do?

Here's to fulfilling those big hopes & dreams in 2009 & beyond!
