In May 2011 I "ran" (walk/jog/walk) my first 5k....this lead to a racing addiction of sorts. I am not winning these races but I am winning in that I go, I run (now I run) and I have tricked a bunch of my friends into coming with me and I have made many lifelong friends in the process.
84 races later (as of 9/23/2012) I decided to start a blog. It will be mostly race recaps but I will soon be starting my marathon training...YIKES
I am 215 races down as of 12/31/13.
There are options of any length/type of race real or virtual. My goal is to do 13 half marathons. I have 5 real ones on schedule already.
That leads into third. Remember my post about how much I love bling? I found Sandra's web site of virtual races for to raise money for Team in Training and you get awesome bling!!! Fund 4 Bling. Every month Sandra puts on races that are various distances and you can sign up for as many as you want. She makes you awesome personalized bibs and if you send her pictures she will frame them with your name and time.
I just did this one last night.
I hope Kimberly doesn't mind I used her pic....
See!! The bling is serious!!!
She is hosting a run series 2013 13 13.1's. You have to do 10 of her races that you do donate to her team for and then use any 2 of your other races to make 12 then the 13th race is free and you get a super huge medal. This series will for sure help with the first one!!!
Who is with me? Let me know if you are joining in on any of them!!!
