Fitness Friday: 12 in 2012?

As I prepare to run my last race of 2011 tomorrow, I'm looking ahead to my goals for 2012.  My original plan was to run 1 race a month for a total of 12 races in 2012. However, I now have a couple months where I know I'm going to run more than one race, so my goal will still be 12 in 2012, but I might not run a race every month.  Living in Michigan, it's hard to find good races in the winter and I'm reluctant to pay money to run a race (especially if it's only a 5k) just because I need a race for a specific month.

Here's what I'm thinking:

  • January: Tinker Bell Half Marathon, Disneyland, CA 1/29/12
  • February: (undecided)
  • March: Irish Jig 5k, East Grand Rapids, MI 3/17/12
  • April: Knoxville Half Marathon, Knoxville, TN 4/1/12 and Striders 10 mile 4/22/12
  • May: 5/3 Riverbank Run 25k, Grand Rapids, MI 5/12/12 and Down & Dirty Mud Run, Chicago, IL 10k 5/20/12
  • June: undecided
  • July: Tri Del Sol, Middleville, MI 7/12/12 
  • August: undecided
  • September: Fitbloggin 5k, Baltimore, MD or Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon (if I can find the $$$ to go)
  • October: Grand Rapids Marathon 10/21/12
  • November: Hot Chocolate 15k, Chicago, IL
  • December: undecided

So that's 10 races.  I need to find a couple more - definitely something in June and August.  If anyone in the midwest has suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
