I posted some fall race thoughts just over a month ago. Summary: definitely run some summer 5ks, definitely run RnR Philly Half on 9/20, unsure about Wineglass Marathon.
Immediately after I posted, my wonderful friend Jessica informed me I cannot run the Philly half because I will be in Long Island as a bridesmaid in her wedding. The pregnancy and baby have left me with shit for brains.
Now that the baby is here and I know how much of my time she actually consumes, I also decided that I will NOT be running the Wineglass Marathon. I also do not have the desire to train for a marathon so it made the decision simple.
- My first post-baby ‘race’ will be the Spring Lake 5. My current 5 mile PR is at this race from 2013. The race is on 5/24 (just about 9 weeks postpartum) and I will NOT be earning a new PR.
- I want to run the NYRR Mini 10k (6/14). Still not signed up, but I plan on it.
- NYC Runs Queens Half Marathon (9/14) – Jess (from above) and her fiancé want to run this half before their wedding and since I botched my original half marathon plan, I decided to run this race! It is in the same park as the 13.1 series and the NYRR race (combined, I have run a race in this park 5 times). Flat and boring course but definitely PR friendly.
Besides the races listed, I plan on finding local 5ks to run over the summer to help with regaining some speed for the fall half marathon!
Who wants to join in on the fun in Queens and run this half?
