I think I have finally filled out the rest of my year’s racing calendar. There is a mix of local and not so local races.
June will be race 10 and possibly race 11.The Vestal XX this Saturday is a favorite of mine. I couldn’t run it last year due to injury so am excited, though undertrained, to run it on Saturday. The Red Dress Run is an almost 5K that is tough but a fav of mine as it is $5 that goes to the Crime Victim’s Awareness Center.
July will be race 12, providing I do that second race in June. August will add two half marathons so up to race 14 for the year.
September will be big! I will take some time off at the beginning of the month as my daughter is getting married on the 7th. At the end of the month, I will be heading to the Adirondacks to be a part of a Ragnar Relay team and will once again visit Lake Placid. I haven’t been to Lake Placid in decades – years did just not do it justice.
October is likely a local 5K or 10K. I have toyed with going back to Bethlehem, PA for the Runner’s World Half and Festival. I still may but I have not put the money down for that yet.
November is my fall marathon. I will be running Richmond. Then, on Thanksgiving I will run the local Turkey Trot as I have run it every year I’ve been racing.
I’ll round out my year with the local Santa run. That will put me at 19 races for 2013 whether I do the Runner’s World event or not as that would rule out OctoberFAST.
So here it is chronologically. I should finish the year between 18 and 20 races.
June 15 – Vestal XX
June 19 – Red Dress Run
July 14 – Boilermaker 15K
August 8 – Tromptown Half
August 15 – Women’s Distance Festival 5K
August 18 – Catharine Valley Half
September 27-28 – Ragnar Adirondack
October 19 – OctoberFAST 5K & 10K
November 16 – Anthem Richmond Marathon
November 28 – Pete Keyes Turkey Trot
December – Santa Run 5K
What does your schedule look like for the remainder of 2013? Will you hit your goals?

Quite the year Nicki! After a few more decisions, I will be posting my schedule as well. Stay tuned. We will indeed race another one together in Deruyter, NY.
Can’t wait to see what you have lined up for the rest of the year. Tromptown is a fun race!
