I've put together an idea of some races I'd like to hit in the next few months. I've decided not to actually sign up for any just yet since I don't technically have medical clearance and I need to see how my body is performing. None the less, putting a schedule together of races to train for has gotten my focus out of the dumps and to the future. I plan to start slow and with a race that should be easy and encouraging with the Thin Mint Spring 5k on March 23rd. I then hope to revisit a race that tore me up last year, the Austin 10/20, 10 miles on April 14th. This race may be a stretch but I'm putting it out there because I feel like I have something to prove this race. Our life then takes a twist as we are scheduled to spend an extended period of time in Dallas. This change in scenery is exciting and I'm hoping to take in a race or two while we are there inculding the Disco Run 10k on May 19th and then the Wounded Warrior Half-Marathon on June 9th. That brings us back to Austin and into the blazing heat so I'll break from racing for then. But I'm still shooting for a fall marathon if I can find one in the area. I feel spirited just thinking about these races, wish me luck.
