Hubster and I have designated this year as Year of the Runner. This year will be a year full of races and focusing on running. It will be a year to push ourselves to our limits and finish challenges we didn't think we were capable of.
Should be exciting!
After posting my blog yesterday, I decided that if I really am going to run a race per month I should probably find ones that spark my interest. So, without further ado, here is the magical list of options:
(not many races in Utah in March--I'm still not sure I'm crazy enough to do this one!)
(Running this with my bestie...debating whether I want a medal bad enough to run the half over the 10k. I love me some medals!)
(This one sounds so fun!!)
(Just ignore this one...move right along...nothing to see here. Okay--not sure if I am capable of doing this one, but if I am going to run a marathon this is the year to do it. We didn't designate it year of the runner for nuthin...so we will see how I feel after my first half marathon.)
A jingle jog 5k...none are posted yet, but I know there will be some!
This list of races did just the trick for my motivation. I'm excited about running again! Some of these look like so much fun, and others are ran through such beautiful areas that it couldn't be terrible to run them. I'll keep you updated on my progress!
An another note, yesterday my work began a Biggest Loser competition. We will be competing on most weight loss and largest drop in body fat percentage. We did this a year ago, and I am happy to report that my weigh in yesterday had me down 20 lbs and 6% body fat from the last time I weighed in. Yay for that! I don't expect to win this competition, but I do expect it to be another motivator for me to keep working hard. It's already helping! I can't wait for my body fat percentage to be within the healthy range...just a few months of hard work and I'll be there!
What fun races do you have scheduled this year? What is keeping you motivated these days?
