Ever since I’ve started running, all of 8 whole years, I normally have taken off the month of December. I use it as a month to chill out, reflect and enjoy all the holiday events. However this year is different, this year I’m going full force. This is Florida running season, I had no idea before I moved here. It’s time to run, not time to rest.
While I’ve been ramping up my mileage, slowly, I’ve been cautious about doing too much, too soon. However, I decided last night to look for a couple more races in 2017 and excitedly I found two awesome ones.
I don’t think I’ve ever ran a 15k so you know what that means…instant PB. And check out those jackets, awesome! I love hot chocolate and I never drink it anymore but trust you me…I will be enjoying a yummy cuppa after my 15K. The race is this Sunday.
My next race find is on NYE and this one is very interesting, it’s the New Year’s Eve Prediction Run. Ever hear of one of these? So when you sign up for the 10k, you predict your finish time. The top predictors in each race, wins the trophy and the top 50 overall men/women win too. How good are you at predicting your race finish time? I happen to be pretty good at it so unless I get super speedy, this could be an opportunity for me to actually place at a race! And you guessed it, no watches or FitBits allowed. This race is actually on my daily running path so I have an even bigger advantage… #fingerscrossed
And my RunUpToChristmas Update…
I’ve currently made it halfway to my goal of 100km by Christmas, I just might try for the 150km goal.
