Well, another month done and wow what a month! February…I officially don’t care for you at all! Thank goodness for the Florida break! Two more races in the books while in Florida. The Fort Lauderdale 5K and the A1A Half Marathon both completed on the same weekend! I’m grateful to have knocked out at least two races during the month, keeps me on schedule to complete the task of 30 races this year.
March will be a full month on the racing calendar. March 14th will be the Run for Super PI! Math nerds are welcome to come out and walk, run or just spectate the madness! This race will take place at Second Sole at Levis Commons in Perrysburg. http://www.roadracerunner.com/re_165794/RunforSuperPi.html
The next race will be a big one. The Black Swamp Festival of Races http://greatblackswampruns.org/. This will be a 25K run on March 21st! I’ll be running with my sister Patti and my sister Leanna is coming in from Florida to run as well. Not planning on setting any records for this one as it’s 15.5 miles long. The plan is to just enjoy the company and finish the race with no injuries!
To follow the Black Swamp up, I’ll be running The Wearin of the Green 7K run on March 22nd (the following day!)http://www.imathlete.com/events/EventOverview.aspx?fEID=19995 This was one hell of a race last year! It’s held at Maumee Bay State Park out here in Oregon, Ohio and being March in NW Ohio…you never know what kind of ugly Mother Nature is going to throw at you! I’ll be tired from the long run the day before and if the winds were anything like they were last year…I just want to see the finish line!
The final run for March will be the Ann Arbor, MI Half Marathon! March 29th and will be starting…you guessed it…right there at the Big House! Not a fan of Michigan Football but it’ll be my first time in the area and hey…It’s another race to mark off my calendar! http://theannarbormarathon.com/
So there you have it! 4 Races in one month! Right around the corner in April will be the Glass City Marathon/Half Marathon! I’m working on dropping weight and scoring a PR at that one! Cross your fingers! I’ll do an entire blog entry dedicated to the Glass City at a later date.
As a small teaser…I’ve joined a group of people from a running group and have committed to running Ragnar (Chicago 2016) http://ragnarrelay.com/race/Chicago I’ve posted the website for the 2015 relay so that you all can look through and see how much fun this is going to be. 12 runners, 2 vans, 200 miles of running from Madison, WI to the windy city! Chi town! This has been on my bucket list for years and I still can’t believe I’m finally going to have the opportunity to do it! More on that later too!
Keeping up with my running and hitting the gym on schedule. Cleaned up my eating and will continue to tune it as time passes. Still have plans of dropping the extra pounds for my challenge at the gym.
As always, thank you to everyone for following along! Extra thanks to all for donating to Mobile Meals of Toledo!! They keep me focused to keep the legs moving! Running with a purpose! Take care and …I’ll see you on the Road!
