2010 Race Calendar - Part I

Decisions, decisions, decisions…I probably should have posted my 2010 racing calendar this back in January but I had no clue what I was going to do. When I read “Your Best Year Ever” in Runner’s World I thought, “Yes, I’m going to do two 5Ks, two 10Ks and four half marathons” and then I came to my senses. I figured it was more realistic to plan for two to three half marathons and about two 5Ks. But the question remained, “What races would I sign up for?” Before I knew it, it was February, I was starting my half marathon training and I still had no idea which races I was going to do. After my friends ran the Surf City Marathon and Half in Huntington Beach, Calif. on February 7 without me, I was really itching to race. So I buckled down and planned out the first half of the year. Here it goes:

April 25: Glass City Half Marathon
June 6: Rock ‘n Roll San Diego

I was in half marathon mode last year and I want to continue that trend. I’m hoping to set new PRs and have lots of fun. I’m really excited about the Rock ‘n Roll race. I’ve wanted to do one for a while and depending how this race goes, I may try to do another one in the second half of the year. So wish me luck. What are your 2010 racing plans?


  1. I want to run a Rock and Roll marathon or half sometime soon! I'm running the New York City half in March, on my way to running the Wisconsin Marathon on May 1st (my first full), and I'm thinking about trying to sign up for Marine Corps on Oct 31st. Also contemplating the Philly marathon or maybe just a couple halfs. Good luck with your training!

  2. @KBam - I'm contemplating a few more RnR halfs over the summer and in the fall (Chicago & Philly) as well as Philly in Nov. I know once I make it through the first half of my race calendar. Good luck with your races. Hope you set some new PRs and have lots of fun.
