I found this awesome race series that is being put on at Alum Creek near Columbus Ohio. It's a series of two races and you can pick from multiple distances. The first is on January 20th and I opted for the 20k and then the monster is on February 17th which is the 50k. I am totally stoked because I have a schedule that is doable, and a plan to keep active through the worst months in Ohio. AND....I totally made it fit around writing a dissertation!
There are only 250 spots open for this race so if you find yourself interested register at Premier Sports and as mentioned there are a variety of distances that you can run.
Did I mention that this is my FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR....I confess that I hate to run in the cold, but I just totally dig the holiday lights. I started a tradition of running on Christmas Eve around my neighborhood to enjoy the lights. One year I went out absurdly late but it was unbelievably peaceful. A run plus hot chocolate is the way to go!
I started thinking about 2013 as I mentioned in a previous post and am slowly readjusting and defining my goals. Never a good time like the present-I say why wait until the New Year. What are your plans?
