Planning Ahead-- My 2015 Race Calendar

I've mentioned it a lot but races keep me motivated. I love having a goal to work towards and I love the rush that comes with running, and finishing, a race.

Today, I somehow convinced two of my best friends to run a half marathon with me, next year. Carrie and I have been friends since we were six years old. We met Melis when we were eight. We've been constants in each other's lives and I know I can count of these girls no matter what. Last month, Carrie flew out to Lethbridge for a much needed girls weekend.



Carrie recently started running and completed her first 5K race last month. Melis has never raced but is excited (and a little terrified) to work towards this goal! It's not the first time I've convinced them to do something out of their comfort zone, hahahaha!

 


I'm technically waiting to register until I hear back from my Rock N Blog application but I will definitely be there running it!  Is anyone else registering? It's only two weeks after the NYC Marathon so I will be taking it easy and just running, for fun, with Carrie and Melissa!

As for the rest of my 2015 race calendar? Well, I recently added a new page to my blog called UPCOMING RACES which you can find HERE.

I'm sure I will be adding a few more but those are the ones I'm registered for or will be once registration opens! Here's the complete list (and the rest for this year) if you don't want to click the link ;)

1. Mustache Dache 5K- November 24th

Have you ever convinced non-running friends to sign up for a race?

  3. It looks like you have a great race calendar in the works for next year! I'd really love to run New York one day. I'm still trying to think about what I'd like to race next year but I'm already committed to the Goofy Challenge at Disney World in January, the Tinkerbell half at Disneyland in May and Ragnar Wasatch Back in June. After that we will see!

  4. Look at you! I really admire your running spirit & dedication. Maybe I'll join you in LV?
    We should seriously start doing some local races together. It would be nice to train together in spirit & then unite for the race! :)

  6. 2015 will be a great year for you!! So much fun! I only have a couple races picked out so far (but not registered yet), Mud Hero and Rundle's Revenge. I still want to find a semi local but new half too. And that will probably be it for me!

    1. Canmore half is pretty fun and gorgeous! The hills are tough but it's a beautiful time of year to run in the mountains! :)

  7. Awesome race calendar! NYC and Vegas in one month?! That will be SO AWESOME! I wish I could join.

    I'm registered for nothing. My only plan is Mud Hero and probably the Red Deer Spartan Races.

  8. I'm still debating if I want to buy the RNR 3-Tour Pack or the North America unlimited. I will for sure be doing a few RNR runs (probably Vegas again!)

    I don't have all my runs set in stone yet, but I will be for sure running the Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon in Australia as a Gold Runner for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. Funding-raising money for cancer research!! I'll also be running my first full marathon (LA MARATHON!)

    If you have any recommendation, let me know ^_^
