A few friends of mine are planning on running 6 half's in 6 months. We have 4 on our schedule but need to find 2 more; 1 in June and 1 in July. And being totally cheesy, we are calling ourselves the six pack crew. lol We plan on getting shirts made that name our 'crew' name on the front and the back will list each half marathon we are running.
I had no intentions of running a full next year, but that may change. I was speaking with a friend and a VERY experienced runner and he thinks I should run Detroit again with a BQ goal time. I was only 6.25 minutes off when I ran the full in October and he said with all the training, mileage I will be putting in and half's we are running, that I could run Detroit and qualify for Boston. So I might give it a shot. we shall see.
We also put together a team for Dances with Dirt. It will consist of 2 women, 2 VERY fast men and my dad, who is also fast & has experience with DWD.
Anyway, here is what is on my schedule for 2010. Its obviously not complete.
February: winter fest 4 miler
April: trail half
May: Bayshore half and first Duathlon
August: RnR Chicago half
September: Chicago Half, Dances with Dirt
October: Detroit full???
November: 10K turkey trot
I need to find a race for March. I plan on spending December & January doing lots of strength training, cross training and will run a couple times a week.
