Race Season

IT’S RACE SEASON!! I was just looking through my calendar and realized that I have a race 5 out of the next 6 weekends – CRAZY!! Thankfully most of them are just fun ones J

May 11thRidiculous Obstacle Challenge 5K [“Running” this with Ryan and another couple. There are 16 obstacles, so I feel like there will be very little actual running.]

May 26thStrawberry Festival 10K [Running this with Ryan so that he will have a finishing time that we can submit to Disney for the Disneyland Half Marathon. {Technically Ryan’s pace is not my pace, so this will be more of an easy run for me (not my race pace)}.]

June 2ndRock N Roll Half Marathon [This is my ‘serious’ race. It is my first half marathon that isn’t through Disney. Hopefully I will be able to get a PR here.]

June 8thColor Me Rad 5K [Running this with Ryan and my mom. This will be my mom’s second 5K!!]

June 15thBeach Blanket Beatdown Triathlon [This is a sprint distance – so 500 meter swim, 3.5 mile bike ride, and 2 mile run. It is for beach cruisers and just having fun. I wanted to try a tri (hehe), so I thought this would be a great one to test and Ryan will be doing it with me. Really the only part I am worried about is open ocean swimming (I am NOT a swimmer}]

Like I mentioned, most of them are just for fun, but it is still A LOT going on over the next month. I am excited to try my hand (and legs) at different types of challenges. After this month of business I don’t have any other races on my calendar until the Dumbo Double Dare (10K on Saturday, Half Marathon on Sunday) at the end of August/ beginning of September [that is, I don’t have anything else on my calendar YET J - I am a sucker for bling {i.e. race medals and the swag that comes along with the race}…]

I guess that means – be on the look out for race recaps soon J
