5 Races to Run in 2015 | Friday Five
I haven’t been doing much running lately (We only had school for a half a day this week because of all the ice, snow, and freezing temperatures.) I’ve been pretty much hibernating inside in my pajamas, cleaning the house a bit, and catching up on my sleep (which has been off since my trip to the NY Toy Fair last weekend).
But this week’s Friday Five Link-Up is all about the races, so I thought I would share 5 races that I am looking forward to this year. This is just a small snapshot of my race schedule this year, but if you are interested in all the races that I will be running, check out my race page 🙂
Five Races to Run in 2015
March 14 – Rock ‘n’ Roll USA
I ran this race last year with my sister and had a pretty good time, so I thought I would run it again. Plus, the medal for this year is pretty awesome. There are still spots available and I’m looking for a running partner, so let me know if you want to run with me!
April 12 – Cherry Blossom 10-miler
I love the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC, so what better way to view the blooms than with a run through the Nation’s Capital?! Hopefully the weather will cooperate and that it will be good blooming time! This race is done via lottery, so no more spots are available.
I did this race back in 2013 and had a fun time with my sister. I decided to sign up for it again this year because it is the last time it will happen 🙁 Luckily I was able to sign up quickly and got in before it sold out. I will be running this challenge through Disney’s Animal Kingdom with my husband on a quick weekend trip to Florida. I always love runDisney races!
May 24 – Salute Triathlon
This will be my first triathlon! I convinced my good friend John from Run. Geek. Run (disney) that he should do this race with me and he agreed! I am super excited for this race (hopefully the pool will not be freezing!) and can’t wait for it to get nice outside so I can start training!
October 25 – Marine Corps Marathon
This race is completely dependent on whether I:
1. Get into the Marine Corps 17.76K, and thus winning a “gold ticket” to let me register for the marathon OR
2. Upon failure of #1, winning the race lottery and getting a spot to register
I am a bit nervous about trying to register for this race because they only marathon I have done is the 2014 Disney World Marathon, and Disney races are completely a different feeling than other races. And even though I have done a marathon before, it still intimidates me! So, we will see what actually happens!
