Now that the marathon is over I can focus on other things I want to do. To be honest about a month ago I told myself that I was going to take some time off from long distance (to me that means anything longer than 6 miles) At that point I think I was tired of following a plan, I’ve had a week to think about it and I guess I’m not really done with long distance. I don’t plan on running a full marathon anytime soon but I do want to run a couple half marathons. This year I also want to focus on another love of mine…hiking. So here are some plans I have for 2012, they aren’t set in stone because I’m not registered for all of these YET but I’m pretty sure on most of them.
I’ll hopefully be running this with my friend Daniela.
This one I will also be running with Daniela. We want to run the half marathon and get a PR!! I want it….let’s do it 🙂
This seems like such a fun race and it would be cool to bring my green tutu back into the picture. I wanted to do this race last year but didn’t include it in the plans, this year I am because I would really like to do the 17k.
There MIGHT be a little Nevada hiking trip around this time 😉 (Yes Craig, I haven’t forgetten about this)
This run is at night with Craig and my sisters. This will be SO much fun. It looks like a big Rave 🙂
I will be doing this with Craig. He did it last year and I was too much of a chicken to try to do it plus I was injured. This year I’m doing it!! I want to jump over the fire and look hardcore. haha.
This one is still a BIG maybe, I wish it was in the books for sure. I really want to do it and we haven’t been to San Diego in awhile so it would be a nice little trip. PLUS you get Sea World tickets with your registration!!! HELLO!!! So many good things about this race, I’m really pushing for it.
July will be a lot of hiking, we are really considering in making Yosemite our “main” vacation this year which would be A LOT of hiking. If it’s anything like our Zion National Park trip then it’s going to be awesome!!
We also want to hike the Grand Canyon, that would be more of a weekend trip since we live close by.
August and September will be more hiking of our favorite summer hiking trails in Arizona plus I’ll be training for my next half.
I do this race with someone new every year, I don’t plan it that way but it just happens. Someone MIGHT be doing this race with me but we are waiting to see how their first race goes 🙂 I’m really excited about it though.
At this point this is what’s planned but things can change. Last year I made a plan like this and I ended up doing every race so I hope this year it’s the same way. I didn’t plan on running a lot during Winter because I get sick so much and it’s such a pain but if I decide to do the P. F. Changs Full Marathon again in January 2013 then that means I will be training during Winter so we’ll shall see 😉
I’m really looking forward to what this year is going to bring, new adventures for sure. I started the year pretty awesome and I plan on it staying awesome 🙂
