Today is my 100th post for anyone who has been reading for awhile! It’s crazy how time flies! I’ve only been in the blog world for a little over two months now and I feel so connected to so many people. It’s amazing, really, it is!
So you all know what I do for running every week. I saw this little running survey on a blog (sorry, I forgot who I got it from! If anybody knows, PLEASE tell me so I can give them credit!) and decided to do it so it would be a little less boring than listing my mileage. I did take some out and add some of my own too.
In case you care, I ran 30 miles this week with my long run on Saturday. I took Monday, Tuesday, and Friday off and cross trained (elliptical, zumba, yoga) and ran the other days. So that was this week for those who are actually interested.
Running Fun Survey!
Races participated in: I can’t count all the track/xc meets… probably 12 total for them? Plus a 5K (Turkey Trot) and Half marathon, and a new years day 10K. Not nearly as many as I would have liked.
Races “raced” (of x amount above): All? I go all out when I race. I can’t help myself. That competitive nature kicks in.
DNFs: 0 (I’d like to keep it this way)
DNSs: I guess there was 2 xc meets and like 3-4 track meets that I didn’t race in because of my knees…
Distances (Since I just said I don’t know how many I’ve done, I’ll do my PR):
10K: 43:03 (hoping to beat this one this year!)
M: Not yet!
50K: I don’t know if I’ll ever do this one…
New to me distances: The half marathon was a new one.
States run in: Maryland, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania
Months run in: All!
Hottest race: The first xc meet of the year at Baltimore metro was 96 degrees. That was a fun one….
Coldest race: Probably the new years race. It was January 1st, after all.
Windiest race: Hmm… I don’t remember any wind.
Wettest race: We had a few xc meets in the pouring rain. Not a fan of those.
Races planned for 2013:
1) The color Run in DC and Boston! I’ve been dying to try this one and I’ve convinced some of my non-runner friends to join me (Fall/Spring 2013)
2) The Jamestown RI Half Marathon (July 2013)
3) The Run to Remember in Boston Half Marathon (May 2013)
4) Any July 4th race I can find
5) Ali’s Run in RI (June 2013)
6) New Years Race- Hangover Classic (January 2013)
What are your race plans?
