I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. About running.
What I want to do. Where I want to go. How I want to train.
And I think I have finally made some decisions. Some decisions that will help me get focused.
Because running is all about feeling good and having fun. (At least it is to me!)
So, I have opted out of the half marathon in April. I thought long and hard about it and decided to compete in another 10K before I take on a half.
It is the right thing to do.
I have decided to follow a training program very similar to Caitlin's which can be found here.
And have been doing a lot of research on every thing from clothes, to music, to fuel. ( Hi. I'm Kim and I'm obsessive)
That all being said - Here is what I have planned (so far) for 2011.
October- Food and Wine Festival Half Marathon in Epcot!! ( so excited about this!)
I plan to throw a couple of 5Ks in here and there - but nothing is set in stone yet.
But for 2012 - I've got some big plans!!
February- Disney Princess Half Marathon
April- Nashville's Rock and Roll Half Marathon ( no better place to run than my favorite city!)
October- Food and Wine Festival AGAIN.
And then there are a couple shorter distance runs that I would love to do. Who knows... the sky is the limit, I guess.
At least until Kev cuts me off from spending money on race entry fees.
I guess having running as a hobby is better than collecting garden gnomes.
Not that there is anything wrong with that. :)
