Reflecting, and Looking Ahead

I love running events, especially half marathons. The half is my favorite by far because I feel like I work hard but don't push it over the top. 10Ks are fun, 5Ks feel too short. I'm not really warmed up until I'm about 3 miles into the run, so a 5K is over before I'm really feeling good. Tonight as I sit here drinking an amazing Casa Nuestra 2005 Cabernet Franc and looking at upcoming races, I had the urge to recap the year so far and to look forward to races I've signed up for. So, here's the list.

February 2011- Super 5K in Novi, MI, Disney's Princess Half Marathon in Orlando, FL
March 2011 - Shamrocks & Shenanigans in Ann Arbor, MI
May 2011 - Flying Pig Half Marathon in Cincinnati, OH
June 2011 - See Jane Run Half Marathon in Alameda, CA
August 2011 - Salinas Valley Half Marathon in Soledad, CA

And coming up (excited!)
October 2011 - Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco, CA
November 2011 - Malibu Marathon (or half, depending on the knee) in Malibu, CA

Add a Turkey Trot and a Jingle Bell Run and we'll call it a year!

And in other news, the 10 mile run I referred to in my last post was great. I was so glad to get back to a double digit long run after a bit of a hiatus. I had a little post-run soreness due to the injury, but it seems to be healing well and I'm super happy about it!
