2011 Race list (Thus Far)
I have a lot of races coming up, so I thought it might be fun to put them all in one place!
5 Miles Jamaica Plain, MA 4/10/11
From what I’ve heard this is a great 5 mile course along the Emerald Necklace in Jamaica Plain. It’s complete with a great free race T-Shirt & free beer, how can you beat that?
5k Boston, MA 4/17/11
A fun & popular 5k that takes place the day before the marathon. It’s officially the most expensive 5k I have ever registered for, but the awesome t-shirt, medal, fast field & finishing under the official Boston Marathon finish line makes it worth it.
10k Jamestown, RI 4/23/11
This race is apparently very hilly and challenging and weaves throughout scenic Jamestown and Newport, RI. I definitely need the hill race experience so this is a no-brainer in my book. Plus Katy & I will be running this one together!
5k South Boston, MA 5/7/11
Walking distance from my apartment and a fun way to kick off an old fashioned day drinking party, the Kentucky Derby. I’m looking forward to getting a lot of friends involved in this fun and flat 5k.
Oh Heartbreak, we meet again. Remember that time I vowed to never run you again? Well, those emotions were fleeting and I’m hungry and ready for more! I’m looking forward to improving upon last year’s time which given my awful race, won’t be terribly difficult
3.5 Miles Boston, MA 6/2/11
One of my favorite spring/summer events in Boston! It starts and ends at Boston Common, and it’s a great chance to get out of the office with coworkers and get your sweat on followed by a few celebratory brews afterwards.
5k Bass River, MA 6/18/11
This race is in the neighborhood of my family’s house on the cape, and it also happens to be on my Birthday! Plus, I can convince Foxy to run with me 🙂
Sprint Tri Nantucket Island, MA 7/23/11
I’m pretty excited for this one, it’s a great excuse to get to Nantucket during the peak summer months and spend time with friends! This is the weekend before SF so I will be keeping this fun and avoiding ruining my taper.
Full Marathon San Francisco, CA 7/31/11
This is the biggie. I absolutely CAN’T WAIT. I have a good feeling about this one.
Sprint Triathlon Hyannis, MA 9/10/11
I’m excited to have another sprint triathlon on the schedule that I can go full bore and actually race. It’s helpful that this is close to my family’s house and it’s a great chance to see my mom 🙂
That’s it for now. I’m considering a few fall Half Marathons, hoping to get a spot on a Reach the Beach Relay team, the Tufts 10k and numerous other races. Decisions, decisions!
What does your race schedule look like? Do you have any suggestions of races I should add?
