I am three weeks away from running my second full marathon. I am super excited about the LA Marathon. Yet looking forward to the remainder of the year and my running goals, I find myself planning for future fun races in 2014. Most of them lower key, lower mileage, with a focus of fun.
April – I was hoping to run a color me rad run with my son this month, but it appears that they are no longer coming to Sacramento. Which is a bummer, because he and I were really looking forward to doing a color run together. Perhaps I will sign the boys up to run a fun Zoo Zoom style race. They have been asking when they can race again. There is a local half marathon that it super flat and fast. I am tempted to run it. But it all depends on how I feel post LA Marathon.
May - On May 3rd I will be running my first adventure style muddy race. I will be running the Pretty Muddy. It is a girls only, mud filled race with obstacles. It sounds like a dirty, fun, good time with girlfriends to me! Anyone in the Sacramento area want to get dirty with me?
June – I am heading to Napa Valley as a Zooma Ambassador to run a half marathon. I am super excited to be running in this race series, as well as challenging myself to not only have fun but also try to zoom on my run! Again, I would LOVE to run with you and meet you if you are wanting to run this race! Use code: NAMB9 ! That is good for 10% off either distance, it expires on 6/25/14.
I don’t have any race plans for the summer. That isn’t to say that it won’t happen. It is just that at this moment, I am keeping it open. Who knows where our family will be traveling, vacationing, or exploring during these months. I am sure we will be busy and active all the same.
I really want to run Ragnar Relay Napa Valley in September again. That is a great race program, and I loved running the relay with my girlfriends!
I am thinking about running the Urban Cow half marathon in October here in Sacramento. Who knows. Maybe set a PR… or use it in preparation for another endurance event?
