Races I want to try to run this year.

I've been working hard to increase my mileage and my endurance. It's been a cold, snowy winter, so it's a major work in progress. And because I've been working so hard, I've decided I want to run some races. Just because to prove that I can.

I don't want to be fast; I don't want to win; I just want to finish.

Here's the list:
  1. Saturday, April 30, 2011 - Country Music Half Marathon
    I'm gonna need some more time and more work before I'm ready for the distance so I'm moving this one to the 2012 list and aiming for my first half this fall instead. :o)

  2. Saturday, May 7, 2011 - Komen Race for the Cure 5K
    WV Komen Race for the Cure

  3. Saturday, May 21, 2011 - Dirty Dog 15K Trail Run
    Dirty Dog

  4. Saturday, September 3, 2011 - Charleston Distance Run (15M)
    Distance Run

  5. Sometime in September - Creek to Peak Half Marathon Trail Run (13.1M)
    Creek to Peak Trail run
    (hopefully they'll do this race again in 2011. This park is where we do most of our trail running)

  6. Saturday, October 1, 2011 - Beckley Half Marathon (13.1 M)
    Beckley Half Marathon

  7. Saturday, October 22, 2011 - Ace New River Gorge-ous Trail Run (13.2 M)
    Gorge-ous Trail Run

  8. Sunday, November 6, 2011 - Marshall University Half Marathon (13.1 M)
    Marshall Half Marathon

No idea which of these I'll actually run, but I'm hoping to knock a few of them off the "to run" list. I'll keep you posted. :o)

Not so random random pic of the week - A Memorial

My Wedding Day, April 29, 2006, was also my grandparents' 62nd anniversary.
We buried Grampa Friday.
He was a man of few words but mighty actions.
He was dearly loved. And he will be sorely missed.
In loving memory
George W. Schwarz
