Who is loving the Spring teasers? I love the hint of warm weather, but the next day when it is cold again it throws me off a little. The warm weather does get me really excited about race season though!! Okay, if you are lucky enough to live in a warm state then every weekend is race season, but in the great state of Utah races mainly start in the warmth of Spring.
With that said, I am really excited about all the races I do have planned. Starting in April I almost have a race every month. I added a 5k and a 10k in there, because I had to try the Dirty Dash this year right?!! So, this is what I have on the calendar thus far;
April – Salt Lake City Half
May – Ogden Half
June – Dirty Dash 5k (If you want to run with a team, I still have a few spots left.)
July – Legacy Midnight Half (not registered, but it is looking pretty fun!! I want to glow in the dark!!!)
August – (I need to know about a fun race for this month, so help me out!!!)
September – Dirty Dash 10k (I will also register for Xterra for Sept.. If you have never ran Xterra you need to. It is a blast!!! Also, I don’t know if you have heard, but they are moving the National Championship Trail Race to Snowbasin this year, so you will get to race with some amazing peeps!! However, I am sad because I really wanted to run that in Hawaii. Oh well I guess it is better on the pocket-book.)
October – Layton Half (I am not 100% on this one yet. It could be bumped by one that is more established or more entertaining!!!) Halloween Half (I am pretty sure I will do this one again. I am not one to dress up, but I love that every one else does for sure!!!)
(Oh, I am hoping to do a couple of Ragnar races too, but unfortunately our team has been put on the waiting list for Wasatch Back. Ragnar is one of those races that you will LOVE too, so make sure if you have the opportunity to run this one, don’t let it pass!!!)
So, you can see that I am running and planning for some really fun races this season, and I can’t wait!!! I do have some room to add a couple of races, so if there is a race that you know about and love that I should not miss please tell me about it!!!
Why I love races?…Great weather! Great people to run with! Great hardware, and just plain old great fun!!!
What fun races do y’all have planned for this year? You have to register for these bad boys so early, so plan now and don’t miss your faves!!!
Get out there and live life more!!!
