Race Plans for 2015

I’m linking up with Patty from My No-Guilt Life, Erika from MCM Mama Runs, and April from Run the Great Wide Somewhere for Tuesdays on the Run. This week’s topic is 2015 Race Plans.

So far, I have my races planned through May and then one in September.

January: Frigid 5k. This is a small local race to get everyone motivated. I’ve never run it, but it’ll be a good experience, I’m sure.

February: Hale Freezes Over 5k or 10k. I’m not sure whether I’ll be running the 5k or the 10k, but I’ve run the race before. It’s put on by the Hale Center Theater, and all participants receive free show tickets in their swag. Pretty sweet, right? There’s delicious food at the start and finish, and it really just feels like a family event. 🙂 I can’t say enough good things about this race. And I’m running it with a lot of the Blister Sisters! We haven’t run a race together in a really long time, so that will be great!

Blister Sisters!

March: Rex Lee Run 5k or 10k. This is an annual local race that’s celebrating its 30th anniversary. This will be my third time running the race. It features a good course, a great price, and a huge raffle at the end. All in all, a great choice for me.

See? We do run together sometimes!

April: Pink Series 10k. This is an all-women race in a neighboring town. I’ve never run one of the Pink Series races, but I’m excited about it.

May: My first half marathon of the year! I’m still trying to decide which half to run, but I’m leaning toward a smaller race, the Alpine Half, on May 23–or my town’s local race, the Provo City Half Marathon, which is larger but earlier in the month (May 2).

– – No idea for June through August – – I’ll get back to you on that.

Then, of course, the Dumbo Double Dare the first week of September! Woo! Looking forward to this.

Fast forward to November. I’d really like to run my marathon in November, but I’m waiting on choosing one until I know where we’ll be living at that time.

I'm ready to #race in 2015! What are your race plans? @frenchfryrunner #running #goals Click To Tweet

  1. Looks like a great plan so far! I have a hard time thinking about races that are really far off too. I have only signed up for one race this year so far, but Im excited to do alot of small (and maybe last minute) races for fun!

    1. I’m always worried if I sign up for races way far in advance, I’ll get injured or something will come up to prevent me from running them. Last-minute races are great; there’s no time to panic about them! Haha!

  2. Great schedule! I can’t make it out to California this year for any races, but I hope you have an amazing time at the Dumbo Double Dare! Thanks for linking up with us today!

  3. I would love to come to Utah for the REVEL series half marathon in September. They do downhill courses. I loved the one I did in Colorado. It would give me a new state too!

  4. Sounds like you have some great races planned! I bet Utah has some scenic courses! I’ve been to Moab and loved it! This year I’m looking forward to the NYC Half Marathon in March! 🙂

    1. Utah certainly has some beautiful courses. We like running our races through canyons! 🙂 Moab is beautiful. My favorite 10k is in Moab. NYC is coming up fast! I’d love to get out there sometime and run.
