Clearly, I have caught the running bug!
Today, I signed up for two more 10Ks (without even having yet run this upcoming one!).
- I’ll be running a Turkey Day 10K, as I mentioned…
- And I’ll be running a Christmas-themed 10K on my birthday. 🙂
Suffice it to say that I am excited!
I also have to say that, for both races, I had to choose between the options of a 5K or a 10K – and I chose 10K both times without hesitation. That’s awesome.
And now… I am considering a half marathon. 🙂
Now, no promises. As of right now, I still think a half marathon might be too much on my body. I don’t have the best knees, and we all know that I tend to injure myself (Knock on wood! Right now!)… But I have to say, running and training are becoming kind of addicting and I really, really love the feeling of having a goal to work toward.
Plus, I can’t imagine I’ll be running a twelve-minute mile forever… right?
Anyway, right now these two seem to be the top contenders, should I choose to do a half:
- The Austin Half Marathon (I have family that lives there, so that’s perfect.)
- The Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Half Marathon (It’s driving distance from LA.)
Which one do you guys think I should do? Or do you think there’s a great one that I’m missing? I really wanted to do one in Santa Barbara or in the Napa area, but I’ll be honest – I’m not looking to do a race heavy on the hills. Hills kill me.
Nobody thinks I’m crazy for doing this, right? Except my mother?
