January Jumpstart Day 22: Race calendar + giveaway

Day 22 of January Jumpstart!!

I made my list of races for the year. These are the ones I’m either already signed up for or plan on signing up. I am running a few less races this year than last year. I really want to focus on a few goals.

  • Sub 1:50 half
  • 2nd Full marathon for the year

RACES 2014

I’m already signed up for all of the February races. The Cowtown races will earn me the challenge medal again with the 5k and full. Cowtown has great races and I’m excited to be a part of it again. (Discount code CT14HMWR)

The Renegade Run in March is a run my running club puts together. You pick the distance up to 26.2 and run whatever you want. It’s a point to point run. This will be my first year to participate, I need to decide on the distance.

April will be my first time to run a Zooma race. It’s near Austin, TX in the hill country. It’s a good thing there are hills here for me to train. It’s going to be a challenge and a fun weekend! (Discount code for this one is TXAMB9)

I haven’t signed up for the Too Hot to Handle race yet. I ran it last year and it rained and was cool/cold that day in July. It was definitely not too hot!

And October will ideally be my PR for the year. That’s formerly the Allstate race, the course is flat and it holds my PR as of right now.

My plan is to sign up for Dallas again. I have to conquer that race! I’m really hoping there will be a great incentive for the 2013 racers to sign up since we didn’t get to race.

I like races, it keeps me motivated. I like a mix of fun races and races that really push me. I know I won’t be placing in the longer distance races, so it’s a race against myself.

And to keep things exciting we have a 1 day giveaway from Swiftwick!

  12. Anel says:

    I got my run in early this morning, followed by some ab work. To my and my dog’s dismay, I had to run inside on the treadmill because of the icy conditions outside! I never really thought about socks and used anything that is moisture wick, usually from Target. I’d love to try these socks out! Thanks!

  13. Em Ma says:

    I haven’t worked out yet – hopefully later this afternoon, I usually wear Gold Toe socks

  14. I LOVE how you made that chart! I spent some time over the weekend outlining my races and training schedule but it’s currently just in a calendar format… I may have to use today’s snow day to make something more spiffy like yours ;)

Tell me what you think!
