I have decided to run a half marathon every month this year. Call it what you will: 12 in ’14, a New Year’s Resolution, crazy. All are likely accurate. I’m not one for setting New Year’s resolutions, and this particular goal is not something that will be easy to break. Why is it that New Year’s Resolutions are easy to break?
Why am I doing this? Well, really, just because. I want to stay in running shape. Having a set plan for 13.1 miles will make that easier. I want to be able to run a long distance. I want to be able to improve my speed. The added bonus of getting to travel just makes it more enticing. So here’s the current 13.1 year plan:
January- Tinker Bell, Anaheim
February- San Dieguito, San Diego
March- San Diego
April- San Francisco Rock & Roll
May – Cleveland, Ohio
June – San Diego Rock & Roll
Stonewall Peak, Julian, CA Shoreline Half Marathon, Ventura
Hell of a Half, Exeter, CA Disneyland Dumbo Doubledare, Anaheim
September – Harvest, Ventura, CA
October – Los Angeles Rock & Roll
November – Avengers, Anaheim
December – Undecided. Considering the Jeff Galloway in Atlanta, or the Holiday Half in San Diego.
What are you running this year? Care to join me for a half marathon?
