  • My next race is the Glass City 1/2 on 4/27, it is my tune-up race to see what training program I'm going to use for my summer/fall marathon training.

    I'm only planning for one specific race right now - Grandmas Marathon (MN). I will likely choose a fall marathon later. If any smaller, convenient races come up along the way I'll run them too :)

    My first half marathon - 16th of March. Its crossing the border, heading from Newry in Northern Ireland to Dundalk in the Republic. Have driven the route countless times, so will be fun running it ( gulp)

    Just registered for a very fun race: The Scream half marathon in North Carolina. Since it descends over 2,000 vertical feet, it is super fast, and known as a PR course. I would never count this race as a PR, but this year I'm thinking about trying something a little tougher: Starting early at the finish line, running up to the start, and then doing the race.

    Tomorrow, the Bath Half marathon, I was hoping for a new PR, but I have been selling my house and trying to buy a new one. Very stressful which has impacted on my training, and now, for the last week , I have had a sore throat, cough, and cold, you know "man flu", so we'll see.

    I'm running the MudDogs 10k on Saturday, the last in a winter race series. Don't know what to expect. I PR'd in the February race, but my training has been a bit off since that race between bad weather, illness and now a nagging pain in my right foot. All 3 of my sisters and a niece are running too, so this time I think I'll enjoy the time with them and not worry about my time.

    I'm scared to do a downhill race...won't that shred your quads? I guess that is only if you are holding back though...I agree it would be fun to go super fast downhill the whole time! Good luck with the trek up! :)

    @Daisy471 Did you like that series? My parents live there and I have always contemplated doing one of the races while I was visiting.

    Yes, yes it will.

    You can minimize it by doing downhill repeats in training. :)

    I've got my sight set on a New Year's Eve marathon in Bellingham, WA called "Last Chance". Took a break from marathons after a dreadful experience at the Portland Marathon in 2010 but am itching to get back to it! Nice to meet you all!
