Spring Running Plans…and BEYOND!

We're not in Disneyland anymore...

We’re not in Disneyland anymore…

You KNOW I had to sneak in some Disneyland photos, right? Muahah!

Anyway, this post is actually NOT about Disney, but about the other big part of my blog – RUNNING! And all the fun stuff that is happening this spring!

You can get all the deets on my RUNNING tab, but this spring is certainly looking bright – April is the month of #alltheraces, but as a tune up, I started into a new training plan TODAYΒ for my next race, which takes place in one month:

So, it might not be the February 24th half marathon that a lot of my other pals are running, but it’s local-ish and get this, starts at 1 PM! Wow! Should be interesting, I have never done a midday race!!

After the half, I will be transitioning into a 15-week marathon training plan for my SPRING key race…

Yup, y’all already knew I was ambassador-ing this race, but after mulling it over, I have decided to train for the San Francisco MarathonΒ as an A race for the spring! June 16 – it has lots of great benefits: ideal weather, lots of crowd support and beautiful surroundings…and yeah, it is challenging, but I’m running it already, so why not make it as great as I possibly can? WATCH OUT, I am coming for ya, SF! πŸ˜€

I know that I can PR – closer to the race, I will re-evaluate if a BQ time is within my grasp…and will continue to search for fall opportunities as well (see this post for more on that) so I am feeling really positive and confident. In fact, I will illustrate just how excited I am…

The sky's the limit! :D

The sky’s the limit! πŸ˜€

…you really didn’t think you could leave this post without another Disney pic, didjya? πŸ˜‰

What’s your spring look like?

    • I am usually a morning person, but since this race is 2 hours away-ish, it’ll be nice to not have to spend the night πŸ˜€

  1. It looks like you will have a busy spring! Not sure if I would like a 1pm race start or not. I think I would feel sluggish! My spring is going to be busy with races too! I have a half marathon at the end of Feb that I am kind of nervous about because I haven’t raced that distance since I got injured last year. Hopefully it goes good!

    • I was intrigued by the 1 PM start! I’ll have to report back after we’ve done it, lol! The thing about this race is that it’s about 2 hours away, packet pick up is same day starting at 10 so I will prob leave here around 9 AM – should work out well!

    • Definitely join us at SF!!!! We would love to have you! An intimidating first full is actually a great idea in my opinion because if you decide to continue with marathons, your next one is a guaranteed PR πŸ˜‰

  2. Your spring schedule is so exciting!! Really eager to hear about your next SF experience. I am running the NYC Half, Cherry Blossom 10 Miler, DC Half (duh!), and NJ Long Branch Half. So excited about all of them!

    • Exciting!! Hope to see you there, weather permitting I will be wearing the San Francisco Marathon Ambassador singlet! πŸ˜€
