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……
