I've, once again, revised my calendar for 2013. Originally I planned to run the drumstick double (or whatever it's called) on Thanksgiving in downtown Detroit. Instead of running the 5K and 10K, I will be running a group 20 miler instead. A fellow runner from a facebook running group; Southeast Michigan Runners, is organizing a group Turkey Twenty at Willow Metro Park. I've run the turkey trot for quite a few years and figure what the heck. I can get a good, long run in and save time and money. I am glad I didn't sign up for the Turkey Trot!
I am also signed up for my first 50 mile race. I will be running the North Country 50 Mile trail run on August 23, 2014. I am really looking forward to this race. I hear the course is tough but beautiful and I am always up for a challenge.
Boston Marathon registration opens on September 9th. I get to register on the 11th since I am sub-11 minutes on my BQ time. I feel confident that I will earn a spot with that BQ time. So add that to 2014 as well.
Of course I will be running the Dances with Dirt 50K in September 2014. It's just a fun event that I refuse to miss out on. Plus Jeff is making this his first 50K and I definitely won't miss out on running with him.
I am also researching late fall marathons for 2014. I really want to train hard and shoot for a 3:19 marathon. I need a flat, fast, fall course. I am open to suggestions, within reasonable traveling distance!
