So, let’s face it, I am turning 30 this summer whether I like it or not And as a way to keep my self preoccupied and not thinking about all the things that I should have done by now, I created a list of 30 things to do before I turn 30. I am currently working on that list and have even crossed some things off the list! BUT I came up with another crazy idea that I thought would be fun to spend my 29th year.
I want to run 30 races before my 30th birthday! Crazy much? Here’s the thing– Running has impacted my life in so many ways and I honestly have so much fun participating in races. Yes, this comes just days after my moaning session on marathon training. These races will be short; 5ks, 10ks, and a couple of half marathons. Plus the full that I am dreading!
I ran my first race (a 10k) about a month after my 29th birthday in August and I have run 7 more races since then at various distances– So that means just 22 more to go!
I’ve compiled a list of races that I have completed and the ones that I am considering. I will put a tab up so you can follow along with the races that I do–Some of them I have already registered for–Louisiana Half (this weekend!), Austin Full, Nashville Half, but the shorter ones are up in the air. The list will change as other races pop up or around my schedule. My birthday is August 8th and I really want to run the Rock N Roll half in Dublin as my 30th race (It’s August 5th!) How epic would that be!?
Anyways, that’s my fun new idea–looks like I’m going to be busy this year!
Do you like races?
Are you competitive when you run?
I am only against myself (and that’s only sometimes) I’m a slow runner. Very slow. But I love the energy at races so much!
