The first Marathon is done! Training paid off and we finished it! Now, after two weeks of lollygagging and recovery, I'm ready to get back on those running / race goals for the rest of the year. I'm breaking down the goals by season, as training will be harder in the summer, because of school schedules, but for me the summer is 5K season, and hopefully a few 10Ks.. we will see.
The rest of the Spring
I have my annual 5K this weekend, the Kennett Run. This is a favorite race for me, it's challenging, but it's the 5K most of my family does. And this year... drum roll please... my son will be running the 5K! I am so excited for his first 5K! Of course, he has no time goals, but I have told him to have fun, to run, jump, walk, dance, skip, whatever he needs to do to finish it. I'm willing to give him a piggy back ride, but only for a little bit.
I'm looking at doing 2 5Ks on Memorial day weekend. I will have to register by Friday to get the early Registration fee. One is a local 5K, the Memorial Day Dash, which I have wanted to do for 3 years.
Right now, I am only considering 2 other 5Ks, but I'm looking for more. Probably local races.
In September, which feel more like Fall, I am registered for the Bird In Hand Fire Company Challenge, which is a 5K on Friday night (9.09.16) and the BIH Half Marathon on Saturday Morning (9.10.16). I will go into full training mode for this the first weekend of June.
I am also very interested in doing the Virginia Beach Rock 'n' Roll Half. But need to look at accommodations first.
Hershey Half Marathon- I had an amazing time at the Hershey Half Last year, and want to run it again this year. The other day I developed the irrational fear that it will be raining that day... I don't know where it came from.
I told Roger that I was considering doing the Philadelphia Marathon, and now his FOMO is kicking in, and he wants to do it too. I need to make a decision on this one soon, because in two weeks, it will be out of my price range.
That's all that is in my head right now... I feel so much better now that's all down and in writing. Now to explore Virginia Beach trips.
