Well 2015 was a great year. I completed two milestones that I never thought possible. A lot of people have asked me what am I going to do now? To be completely honest I don’t really have a plan. I really want to focus on lifting but I can’t go a whole year without a little running. I also can’t run without bringing you guys along for the ride.
This year is all about the bling when it comes to running. I got the itch after the marathon. I think I carried that heavy finisher metal around with me for two weeks. I was and I am still proud but I want more metals. So I have to earn them.
Here is the 2016 Race schedule for me…
February 7- The Super Bowl 4 Miler
March 12- The Shamrock 4 Miler
April 16- The Oak Island Lighthouse Half Marathon
July 4- American 4 Miler
August 27- Yiasou Greek Festival 5K
September 17- Hit The Brix 5k & 10
October 2- Lung Strong 15k
October 15- Rocktoberfest Half Marathon
November 12- Thunder Road Marathon??
9 races and 9 metals for the year of 2016. I have not totally made up my mind about Thunder Road this year due mainly cause of the hard recovery I had afterwards. Those leg cramps are nothing to joke about.
So I have about three weeks until the first race and I need to get started with my training. I know I can complete these races but I also don’t want to be over confident. I just need to run and more importantly have fun.
So here is to a great race season. Be looking for my recap of the Super Bowl 4 Miler coming in a few weeks.
