Runs in 2013

Of course I included running in my New Years Resolution post but I want to talk a little bit today about  specific runs or races I want to complete in 2013.

  1. I want to run in a memorial race for the Sandy Hook victims. I think that not only would it be an amazing thing to do in memory of the children and teachers who lost their lives but I think there's a good chance that they will offer a 5K and a 10K and it would be great to have an option (and possibly chose the 10K??)
  2. Speaking of which- I would like to run a 10K this year. I want to complete it on a high note and go into it knowing that I can complete it! Hello training runs!
  3. I would like to *begin* training for a half marathon. Very early for this one- but in 2014 I would like to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon- so by the end of the year I would like to be starting the training for that race.
I know it doesn't seem like too much- but I don't want to overwhelm myself with too many goals and not be able to complete them. I will definitely be doing a lot more races- I want to run the Turkey Trot again this year but since it will not be a new race for me I didn't include it in the above list! =)

What races do you want to do this year?


  1. Great running goals!
    When I FIRST started running, I'll never forget someone telling me that if you can run a 10k, you will absolutely finish a half marathon alive. haha.
    I didn't believe it at first, but took the plunge and signed up for my first 1/2 right after I heard it.
    I think it's definitely true! Our bodies are SO capable with a little push!

  2. Wow really?! I hadn't heard that before- I definitely need to remember that! =)
