Races Anyone?

I made a sort of goal this year that I was going to sign up for a race a month all year to help keep me training.

So far I have:

June: ?
July: Park City Mountain 5k (Third year in a row)
Deseret News 10k
August: ?
September: The Dirty Dash (SO excited about this one!)
October: The Halloween Half (Will be working up to this one all year)
November: ?
December: The Winter Sun 10k in Moab (Also the 3rd year in a row)

Remember when a 5k seemed like the impossible dream? Now, with three 10k's under my belt, they even seem doable. It's the half marathon that scares me. I know I can do it! Last year I signed up for the Halloween Half but gave up my training due to pretty severe shin splints. This year I am taking it slow and working up to my long runs.

If you hear of any races in those missing months let me know. I would love to run a race in California, Washington or Oregon. Anyone want to join me?

PS Last year I told myself that I couldn't run at night so I didn't. Well I just totally proved myself wrong! Yee-haw!


  1. Well, I know that there's a Ragnar race in Washington. I think t would be pretty cool to do that. But I haven't done any training whatsoever. I still think it would be awesome.

  2. Oh! I just remembered, bloomsday!! In Spokane. Washington. But I think that's in April or may. And I think it's a full marathon. Cause it's a qualifier for the Boston marathon.

  3. Andrew and I will be running the Blood Run 5k on June 4th. This is the website, http://www.bloodrun.org/ ... We ran it last year but it was at a different venue. This year it's at Wheeler Farm. I think it will be a fun race and it's for a good cause. :)
