Race list 2014


Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all had a fabulous Hogmanay and are ready and raring to go with 2014 😀

In my last post I suggested that folk give me ideas of what i could set as my challenge for December, and although one filled me with horror, for some inexplicable reason I decided to go for it, and as a result, I’ve signed up for another marathon.  I know – I too think I’m mental.  There was also a nice suggestion of going to a Christmas ball where I can wear a new frock to celebrate the fact I’ve reached my goals.  So I’ll do that too 🙂  (Any excuse to buy new shoes to go with the dress I’ll need to buy….).

Anyway, since I was planning out my training for the December marathon today, and finding a half marathon to fit in along the way, I thought I’d post up all the races I’m doing so far this year.  I say ‘so far’, but I don’t expect the list to change.  I hope not anyway, I’m knackered already just thinking about it.  So here’s the list:

Stubbington Green 10K – 19th January

Longleat 10K – 9th February

Hampton Court Half Marathon – 23rd February

Big Sur Marathon 😀 – 27th April

Sydling Hill 10K (which is probably about 20K long….) – 28th June

The Vitruvian Half Ironman – 30th August.  I’ll be perfectly honest and say i keep forgetting about this one.  Best dust off the bike…..At some point. In the future…..

Great Birmingham Run (Half marathon) – 19th October

Portsmouth Coastal Marathon – 21st December.  Why, oh why, oh why did I get lured in by the fact it was only £20.14 for this marathon before some date in January?  Next time I’m just burning twenty quid; that would be much less painful.  In all seriousness though, I’m not too worried about this as my pal BriTriSky (name changed to protect the not-so-innocent) said she’d give me a piggyback, so I don’t even need to train for it.  Result 🙂

I’ll also be supporting/helping out at a few events throughout the year, and I’ll likely write a wee post about those when they come round.

Right, I’m off for a lie down with a damp cloth on my forehead, as typing all that has exhausted me……

Night night
