I'd love to do a few races next year. Mixture between duathlons, running and mountain biking. This will all come down to whether i'm studying full time next year and can manage my time wisely.

Wow! You guys are all so scheduled! My race calendar so far:
Feb 23, 2014 - Half in the Hamptons, HM, Hampton Beach, NH.
I'll probably do the Twin Lights Half in Gloucester, MA in May because it was fun last year.
Of course I'm waiting on putting together my full schedule because I'm still deciding if it's time to pull the trigger and run a full.
so far I only have a local half marathon at the end of March and then Edinburgh marathon on 25th May
would like to do the Berlin marathon (September I think) if I survive/enjoy the distance in May, can't think much beyond Edinburgh at the moment
So far for the year I have a full marathon Jan. 19, a 4 mile race in February and a half marathon in March. I am also hoping to do my first sprint Tri this spring. April to September are too hot here to do much for racing.
So far -
Hastings HM March
Brighton FM April
Grt Manchester Run May
Bedgebury Trial June
Bewl 15 July
Bacchus FM Sept

May - Delaware Marathon
June - August - Various track races from 400m to the mile. Maybe a 5000m
Late Sept, early Oct - HM
Early November - Marathon
I'm already registered for the Austin Half Marathon in February. I ran it last year with a sprained ankle and bad plantar fasciitis. I'm going to see how well I can do uninjured.
I don't have anything else planned until October when I'm planning to do the Austin Distance Challenge which is 6 races starting with a 10K, then a 10 mile, a half marathon, a 30K, another half marathon, and then it ends with the Austin Marathon in February 2015.

Oct. 6, 2013 - IBM Uptown Classic 10k
Oct. 27, 2013 - Run For The Water 10 mile race
Dec. 8, 2013 - Decker Challenge Half Marathon

I haven't registered for anything yet, but I'm basically planning a 5K every month from March through September.
4 of them are part of a Beer Run series called Race the Bar (March, May, September, November). I've run some of these before. Each one has a longer option, too. I've run the 8K and the 10K, but I plan on sticking to the 5K options next year. I've gotten age group placements in these races before, so I hope to repeat that and maybe even place in the series as a whole.
In April, I'm planning a 3.5 mile trail race, which is the short option accompanying the trail half marathon I did this year, which was my favorite race yet.
In June, there's a 5-race track event (100, 400, 800, mile, XC 5K). I'm mostly interested in the mile and the 5K at this one.
For July, I'm looking at a popular 5K that's also the state championship. I have no hope at any kind of award, but this is the race I'm planning on peaking for.
There are a lot of local races in the late summer/early fall, so I'll look to do a few of those (there are at least 3 within 2 miles of my house).
If all goes well, and I've been able to meet my training and weight loss goals, in the fall I'll decide whether or not to start training for a mountainous 54 mile ultra.
I'm registered for the following races so far:
May 4th - WPS Half Marathon
July 26th - Mud Hero (6K, 15 Obstacle)
I am going to register for this as well:
June 15 - Manitoba Marathon
I'm waiting to find out the exact dates of a business seminar that will have me in St.Louis, if timing is right I will also do the WFPS Half Marathon in October 2014.
I just may throw a couple 5 or 10Ks in there last minute if the timing (and funding) are right.
Jan- Houston Marathon
April- 70.3 New Orleans and Kemah Olympic Triathlon
August- Memorial Hermann Bridgeland Triathlon
Sept- HyVee 5150 US Championships
Oct- 70.3 Austin
I'm feeling really disorganized after reading some of your plans!! Coming up I've got...
Woodside 35k (this is a trail run, it's actually at the very end of December)
The San Jose 408k - March (this is an 8k race, SJ's main area code is 408)
Santa Cruz Half Marathon - April
Big Sur Marathon - April
SF Marathon (this is a maybe) - July
Skyline to Sea 50k (trail race) - October (?... date TBD)
I will probably throw in several trail races if I can and potentially the Capitola Half Marathon in May depending on how I feel after Big Sur.
this weekend I'm doing double marathons (a 55k trail, and then dallas marathon) but I'm afraid of the trail race being canceled b/c of the impending winter weather/storm. should I pull that off, then my schedule is like this:
Jan 1 : Cedar Hill Trail run, 20k
Jan 11: Bandera 100k trail run
if I can only run one race this weekend, then it will be
Jan 11: Bandera 50k trail run
Feb 8 Rocky Raccoon 50 mile trail run
I haven't registered for any of those, and I don't like to train for more than 2 mths for anything, plus I don't plan ahead much.
