New Year, New Race Schedule

Disclaimer: I am an ambassador for the Blue Ridge Marathon and have received a free race entry to help promote the race. 

I admit I don’t really have a firm schedule set up yet. I do though, have a race in March and April and, in keeping with my thought process on the first of the year, both are halves. Imagine my excitement at the announcement of a half series in one of my favorite location to race – Roanoke, Virginia.

I am already a huge fan of the Blue Ridge Marathon and the associated half. You can read all about my previous runs and expos associated with the Blue Ridge Marathon here. On top of loving those two races, I am enamored with Roanoke and the surrounding area.

The series starts with Race 13.1 Roanoke on March 1. I will, unfortunately, not be able to make that race. Next up is Blue Ridge Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K weekend in April. Finally, there is the Star City (you’ll understand if you have ever read my race recaps from Blur Ridge) Half Marathon in November.

Make your plans now to do the entire Triple Crown. I’ll be jealous as I’m in recovery right now and do not anticipate being half-ready by March 1.

If you are like me and may not be half ready until April 18th (I’m actually anticipating a March 15th half), join me in Roanoke for either the full, half or 10K on that weekend. You can receive 10% off your registration using the code RUTOUGH.

Will I see you in Roanoke? Are you trying for the inaugural Triple Crown?
