Well it looks like I will not be moving up in Half Fanatics since I do not know how to read a calendar. I thought the Chambersburg Half was on a Sunday which works out great, however once I learned how to read a calendar looks like it is a Saturday race so no half before RnR USA which means I am not moving up in Half Fanatics (I needed 8 halfs in 365 days.) So I guess I can work towards 8 this year.
Here is what I have on my list for this year:
March - RnR USA - This will start off my racing season..it is the first long race of the year.
April - Cherry Blossom 10 miler (doesn't count towards moving up in Half Fanatic Land..but it is still on the calendar)
May - Marine Corps Historic Half - I know I said I would not run this race again after last year's hill horrors..but I'm running a mountain in June and hilly Pittsburgh so I figured it would help get me in shape. And who can say no to a race that is fifteen minutes from home? I hope I don't live to regret this race.
June - Hatfield McCoy Half - this should be a really great race (except that I am running up a mountain) Anyone have any thoughts on a hotel..must book this soon.
August - Biggest Loser Half in Erie - I'm running with my friend JoAnn, this will be her first half marathon. So hopefully she will enjoy it and start to run longer distances more often.
RnR Pittsburgh - I have yet to see the route, but I am sure that it will be over at least one bridge (it is the city of bridges)
September - RnR VA Beach - I know I hated the heat last year. I am sure I will still hate it this year..but it will give me three RnR races which means extra bling!! And I can stay with my friend Kristi so who can say no to that?
October -Heritage Historic Half - this is the race that I had my last PR. I like the small race atmosphere so this is an easy yes to run for me.
December - I would like to run the Blue and Gray Half - once again it is only 15 minutes from my home. I wanted to run it this past year, but it didn't fit in with my schedule. Hopefully this year it will fit in better. If I end up with tickets to a Steeler game this weekend there will be no Blue and Grey Half for me.
It looks like I need one more half to move up in Half Fanatics..I will be looking at a calendar to see what is out there and what I would like to run. I might just have a very busy running year again.
