Happy New Year!
Well, I didn’t kick off the new year with a run like I had planned- I gave myself a bout of food poisoning yesterday after eating deli meat that had gone bad on New Years Eve… oops! Guess I should not make my lunch in the dark anymore… lesson learned for 2012!
I’ve been putting some thought into my 2012 race plan… here’s what’s on the schedule so far:
April- Drake Relays on the Road Half Marathon
May- Green Bay Cellcom Marathon
June- Dam to Dam Des Moines 20k
October- Des Moines Half Marathon
And there may be more to come- my goal is to stay in shape year round. Always be ready to run a half marathon, and ultimately, keep the miles up and be marathon ready at all times too.
Some new things I will venture into in 2012 include helping a friend organize a local race- more details to come on that once we figure out what we are doing! It’s going to be a LOT of work, but I am so excited! It will be such a rewarding experience and benefit kids and families battling cancer.
I am also getting the itch to run further… a 50k is in my future and I am busy lining up running buddies to tackle a race of this distance with me. So far, I am having success! The actual race may be run in 2013, but will be on my mind during 2012.
Another goal I am toying with… running a 50 mile race when I turn 40. Granted, this is YEARS ( 🙂 ) away, so I have some time to mull it over…
So, tell me, what are your running resolutions for 2012?
