Need a Plan for 2010

Hey ladies,

I am ready to kiss 2009 goodbye! My last race was the Wasatch Back (with many awesome ladies from here!), but the last race where I felt good was March 7th! I am ready for the new year.

So, I need a plan! I need ideas from the rest of you. I am still tentatively planning to run Ogden Marathon with my wonderful sis-in-law Kristyn, and I am also considering St. George in the Fall. What are the rest of you doing? I feel lost without a plan! Help!

I am not sure what marathon Iwill be runnin in 2010. I'm not sure what state I will be living in after the summer.

I'm with Stephanie, I have no idea what I'm planning for 2010! But I like it that way, last year was chaotic with all of the races, school, kids , etc. This year I'm just going to go with the flow. Although I'm eyeballing the VT city marathon in May..hmmm....

I'm just excited to get running again soon. ;)

(Do you know how much I miss our Wasatch team???!!)

2010 is starting to take shape for me, although not everything is set in stone yet. I entered the Canyonlands 1/2 marathon lottery at the last moment and was lucky enough to get in, so that'll keep me training through the winter. After that, I'm the captain of a Wasatch Back team from my ward for the relay in June. I think I'll do an Idaho marathon next fall, either in Pocatello or Mesa Falls. I've done the Zeitgeist 1/2 in Boise the last three years in November and I'll probably hit that again too. Lots in store... it's going to be a great year!

I'm planning on keeping my self busy this next year. I signed up for the St. George Runner's series (to get a Guaranteed Entry to the St. George Marathon) so I have to do two races for that. The first one I'm doing is the St. George Half in January and possibly a relay in March. I am also signed up for Canyonlands in March (Maybe I'll see you there Tall Girl!) I'm also excited to do the Wasatch Back again this year. I had really wanted to do the Ogden Half marathon but was sad to find out when I went to register for it that it had just sold out! Now I'm thinking I might run the Salt Lake City Half Marathon instead. I'm sure there are other races I will want to do too! They are all fun. Good luck everyone-I hope it's a great new year!

I'm guessing I'll be running the StG 1/2 in January and the Lake to Lake Relay in StG along with Cal. =) Then the Boston Marathon is looming ahead in April. I can't believe I have to start training for that in only a couple of weeks! Crazy!! There's the Wasatch Back in June, and then I'll be running the StG Marathon in October, and I have a guaranteed entry into the NYC Marathon in November, so hoping I have enough money to go, I'll be doing that one as well. =)

I'm sure I'll toss some 1/2s in there as well. I still really want to try the Bryce Canyon 1/2 in July, and I think I'd love to do the Red Rock Relay in September, but I really think I've already got a lot of races on my plate right now as it is. =)

All of your Utah races are making me homesick! I've been dying to run the Ogden Marathon!
Anyway, here are my goals for 2010:
National Marathon in DC (although I will be running the half). Wasatch Back in June during our annual visit.
Then a marathon in the Fall....haven't decided which one yet....maybe Baltimore or Richmond?
Good luck to everyone in the New Year!

Jamie- Now you are making me homesick! I did the Richmond marathon in 2008 and loved it. I liked it better than Baltimore. Now we aren't on the east coast anymore and I don't have a plan yet...
Good luck on your training everybody!

Christy said...

I want to try for the St. George Marathon, too. I just hate that darn lottery!!!

Can't wait for Wasatch Back (that race keeps me flying home every year!).

You should try the Top of Utah half or full. It's a beautiful course.

Ogden has already sold out. I am soooooo bummed!!!
