2014 Race Schedule Update

Since the last time we talked schedule, I may have added a few races. Sorry not sorry!


this happened last year. and is happening again this year.

The Cherry Blossom 10 Miler April 6, 2014

Whoops!  One of my dearest friends and sorority sisters planned to run this race, but ended up not being able to.  In the nick of time {literally on the last day} we figured out that I could run the race in her place and she graciously transferred her bib to me.  This is actually awesome, even though I did not have a great experience in last year’s race, because I would really like to race a sizable distance before the big day in Big Sur three short weeks later.  Think of it like a 38% warm up for the race distance.  Even better, so many of my online peeps are going to be there:  Captain Chelsea, Patrick, Esther, my mom and Dad {my regular in person peeps — you know how it goes}!  There are rumors of doughnuts, tasty brunch and of course lots of good times.

The Marine Corps Marathon October, 26, 2014

This is another whoops.  I found out on Wednesday that I. AM. IN.  This will be my big fall race, natch.  And with the running of the Tower of Terror 10 Miler on 3 weeks before – and another late edition to my 2014 race calendar the following week, this goal will be a doozy.  As a new marathoner, this race is like a shiny, sparkly accomplishment that others that I desperately look up have completed – and also I have a really hard time putting my credit card down and stepping away from the keyboard.  Oh PLUS I can train with the MCRRC again which is boss.  They are amazing.

The Wine and Dine Half Marathon November 9, 2014

So, when team Princess yells assemble, you rarely say no.  Well, I never say no.  Even though one of us is being very fiscally responsible to take her of her big girl responsibilities, I, as usual, threw caution to the wind and will be joining 2 of my other running favs in my most magical place.  To say I’m excited about this one is an understatement.  After last year’s showing, I know how much fun this race is and it holds a special place in my heart as being my first runDisney race.

So you have to give it to me two {fairly enormous} local races and only ONE more Disney – especially with the announcement of the Avengers half marathon in Disneyland?!  I think I deserve an extra medal for good behavior.

Until the registration for the 2015 Goofy Challenge opens next month…

Any last minute adds to your race calendar?

    Love love love Wine and Dine and wish I were going to be there this year. My one big Disney race is going to be the Dumbo challenge for 2014. I’m trying to be good about not signing up for races that aren’t on the agenda. It’s not easy though because I want to RUN ALL THE RACES!!!
