2011 Race Schedule…(so far)

Posted Feb 23 2011 10:57pm

I am new to the idea of having a race schedule for the year. I have run in a couple of races in the past but nothing close to having a “schedule”. It is exciting for me to say that this will be my first year competing in races. Hopefully I will be able to train enough to place in the top of my age group. Having goals helps to keep me motivated but it is really important to celebrate the small things too!!

March 12, 2011: Run for the Seals

“Run for the Seals is The Marine Mammal Center’s annual fun run/walk and fundraiser. Last year’s event was a huge success with over 1000 people (and dogs!) of all ages enjoying this beloved Bay Area event to support the life-saving work of the Center.”

March 13, 2011: Go Green St. Patricks Day Run

I am super excited for this one. I love running a race that has a theme! It makes it that much more fun and the whole energy of the event is so cheerful. This will be my training race before my first half.

April 10, 2011: Santa Cruz Half Marathon

I am so nervous about completing my first half marathon. Yet at the same time I am insanely excited. I have been waiting for this day for a while now and can’t wait to cross that finish line.

May 8,2011: Marine Discovery Run

I love animals so much and racing to benefit them is even better. This run benefits the Marine Discovery Center in Santa Cruz. The top 3 runners get their picture taken with the animal of their choice…how fun?!

May 15,2011: Bay to Breakers

I ran Bay to Breakers with my mom 2 years ago and had a blast!! I couldn’t run last year because it was the same day as a horse show I was competing in. I am excited to run in the 100th anniversary race. It should be a day full of exciting events and costumes of course!

September 11, 2011: Luna Bar Duathlon

I am so excited about this race. My very first Duathlon and I cannot wait. I will be doing the full Duahtlon, which is 2 mile run, 20 mile bike and 4 mile run.

October 2, 2011: Rock and Roll San Jose Half Marathon

This is supposed to be one of the most entertaining and fun half marathon. The rock and roll series has races all over the US. You can also earn additional medals depending on how many races that you run in the series.

October 16, 2011: Nike Womens Half Marathon

I am crossing my fingers that I am able to get into this amazing race! The lottery system does not open for this until the beginning of April. Hopefully I will be picked.

October 30,2011: Rock and Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon

This will be my second Rock and Roll race so I can earn my awesome Rock Encore Heavy Medal. I am excited to be able to compete in 2 of these races. Hopefully next year I will be able to complete 3.

Is anyone else running any of these races? If your interested in running together please let me know!! =0)
