Added a few more races to my calendar :)

Sunday, October 02, 2011

On November 6, 2011 (which happens to be World Run Day) I'll be doing a 10-mile run to benefit Farm Sanctuary.

I just registered for the St. Luke's Half Marathon on April 29, 2012. It's about 5 miles from my house!

I've decided that I want my first full marathon to be as stress-free as possible (is there such a thing?! Lol!) so I've decided on the Lehigh Valley (VIA) Marathon, which is, again, about 5 minutes from my house! It's somewhere around September 11, 2012 but hasn't been officially posted yet.

And as everyone knows that my favorite holiday is Halloween, I'm still trying to find a race around here that's more than a 5k, preferably a 10k or 10-miler. I'll update if/when I find the right one! I am all about running in a costume! ;)

The only bad news is that I'm not going to be able to do the RnR Half-marathon in December (sorry Judy and Natalie). I just can't afford it since I wasn't able to get the airline tickets before they sky-rocketed :(

    Just stumbled across this....there's the South Mountain 10 miler on Oct. 30th. Its on the LVRR's website.

    And yay for signing up for a full....that is so exciting! I'll also be doing the St. Luke's Half next year, and I'm going to be doing my first Full as well....I'll be doing the Run for the Red in the Poconos in the middle of May.

    What an exciting year 2012 is going to be for us!

    Sorry to hear about Vegas. Ticket prices are rather outrageous right now. : /

    A marathon! That is so cool! I am so not there yet, so I really admire you for running one. Best of luck with the training.

    Well darn about Vegas. You'll be missed!

    I still definitely like the sound of the Hershey HM - next yr, that is - but I've gotta see how how I REALLY feel about running a HM first. Well, how my body holds up. Just crossing my fingers that nothing happens before my first.

    I drove down & back to my parents this weekend - 1 1/2 hr each way - how the heck do you drive further & then WORK?
