In case you hadn't noticed the little button on the right side of the blog or heard me mention it in previous posts I am running 12 half marathons in 2012. I am lucky enough to be joined by 11 other ladies who you can learn more about here. I cannot say enough good things about the lovely Jill whose wonderful idea this was. She has been a pleasure to get to know better and always serves as an inspiration to me!
January Auburn Half Marathon (1/21)
February Mercedes Half Marathon (2/12)
March Tom King Classic Half Marathon (3/10), Publix Georgia Half Marathon (3/18)
April Oak Barrel Half Marathon (4/7), Gulf Coast Half Marathon-Pensacola (4/15), Music City Half Marathon (4/28)
May Viola Valley Half Marathon (5/19)
September Nashville Women's Half Marathon (9/23)
October Montgomery Half Marathon (9/29) or (10/6)
November Huntsville Half Marathon (11/10), Ruben Studdard Half Marathon (11/17)
Obviously the most challenging part of the year is going to be the weeks of 3/10-3/18 and 4/7-4/15 during which I will be running two half marathons. I plan to enjoy the first one in March and run a leisurely pace with a good mix of walking so I can hopefully save a lot for the next weekend in Atlanta. I will probably do the same in April unless I run two bad races in March and then I may rethink things. I'm not obsessed with setting a new PR anytime soon after blowing my last one out of the water by nearly 8 minutes. Enjoying my races and having fun while I run are my two top goals and if a great time happens as a result then I will be uber-thrilled!
***If you have a moment say a little prayer for us. A couple of tornadoes came through this morning and one touched down really close to our house. We are safe for now but they are saying the storms that haven't hit yet are supposed to be worse than what came through this morning.
