So, I had this crazy idea to try and complete a sanctioned race every month in 2012. Crazy. Here's a list of possible races for me. If you know of any awesome races I should run, please let me know! I would prefer to run 10k or farther, but had a hard time finding any. Paying for a 5k seems silly at this point.
January 29, 2012 - Tinker Bell Half Marathon, Disneyland (this is a sure thing-already registered!)
February 11, 2012 - Frosty 5k, Middlebury, IN (a trail run, on snow, I'm nuts)
March 17, 2012 - Irish Jig 5k (a local race I've never participated in!) or RockNRoll DC Half Marathon (a lottery win required)
April 22, 2012 - Strider's 10 miler, Lansing Half Marathon (or April 1 Knoxville Half or April 28 RockNRoll Half Marathon Nashville - lottery win)
May 12, 2012 - 5/3 River Bank Run 25k
June 23, 2012 - Cheetah Chase 5k
July 12, 2012 - Tri Del Sol (yep, I put a triathlon on the schedule)
August 18, 2012 - Montrose Blueberry Festival 8k
September ?? - Fitbloggin 5k or Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon (both assuming I win the lottery)
October 21, 2012 - Grand Rapids Marathon (or possibly the Chicago Marathon the week before this)
November ?? - Hot Chocolate 15k Chicago or a random Turkey Trot
December ?? - Wooville 5k or Hot Chocolate 15k DC (can you tell I really want to run a Hot Chocolate race?)
There you go, a very roughed-out, preliminary plan. I'm certainly open to suggestions for other races. I already have Tinker Bell which is costing me a fortune, so travel races will be tough, but I'd love to come run with some of you!
