because I know if I’m working toward a concrete, time-sensitive goal, like a race, I’ll have another great motivator to get my feet on the road and get over that lazy-comfy-in-bed-don’t-wanna feeling.
So, in order:
THE HOLLYWOOD HALF 4/7
I’m not sure if I’ll do the 5k or 10k, but this thing is only a mile away from work, and it sounds like a blast to run a race through the heart of Hollywood. One of my friends is planning to run the Half, and it’d be nice to be there together, even if she is crazier and fitter than I. Plus, the medal is adorable, and I WANTS IT.
THE COLOR RUN, SO CAL 4/22
I’ve mentioned this one before. A 5k, explosions of color, and good times. I’m still trying to find some buddies to run it with me, because it looks like an awesome partytime style race. Utimed, no medals, just fun and color.
PASADENA MARATHON 5/20
I’ve been wanting to do this one since last year. I’ll do either the 5k or 10k, again, not decided yet. Running in familiar territory sounds like a good time, plus, it’s pretty much within walking distance from the Manfriend’s house, so no real parking worries for this one! I hope the Manfriend realizes he’s on tap to take awesome photos of me running at these things…
So there we have it. I want to get at least one 5k in for March before I go all in like this, but I’m having a hard time finding one that appeals to me. The best I could do so far was a St.Patrick’s day event, but it’s apparently “very hilly”, and y’know, just NO.
