As promised, I’m writing down and planning my 2011 Race Calendar. Yesterday I told you all the factors that I consider when planning the year that inevitably has led me to my choices. However, I also told you about my issues with sticking to the plan, impulse registering, and all of that. SO, here is my TENTATIVE calendar:
February 6, 2011 Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon
March 6, 2011 Napa Valley Marathon
April 2, 2011 Golden Gate Headlands Half Marathon
April 17, 2011 Presidio 10 (10k or 10 miler)
May 1, 2011- Big Sur Marathon 21 Miler
June 18, 2011 Grandma’s Marathon, Duluth MN
September 25, 2011- Lake Tahoe Half Marathon
October 2011- EITHER Long Beach Marathon (10/16) or Denver Marathon (10/9)
November 6, 2011- US Half Marathon, San Francisco
So I’ve picked 4 half Marathons, 3 Full Marathons, a 21 Miler, and a 10k or 10 miler (tbd). I will still pick a few 5k or 10k tune-up runs or for fun with friends. But I’m pretty excited about this line-up. It has a little bit of everything, some travel, some trail runs, a few races I want to go back to, and some new races to try.
I had some major decision-making with so many races to choose from, but I’m really excited about this year! Anyone running these races? Maybe I’ll see you out there!
