I'd been thinking quite some time now about my race schedule for 2012 and while my plans have already changed several times, I think these are the races I'm going to focus on this year with a a few other 5Ks thrown in during the spring/summer. I have a feeling this is going to be a great year and I hope to have a couple new PRs at the end of 2012.
Also, I had planned on running the inaugural Canton Marathon on June 17 but just found out last week that Todd's cousin is getting married on June 16 so the marathon is now out of the question. I'd like to run a spring marathon but am not sure which one to do that will be somewhat close to home and fit into my schedule; however, my goal race will be Chicago in the fall. Any suggestions for a good spring/early summer marathon?
February 26: Last Chance for Boston (13.1 mi)--A 1 mile loop course at the end of February in Ohio could be a terrible idea but I'll never know until I try it!
March 17: St. Patrick's Day 5K at Flannagans (3.1 mi)--With the Columbus blogger girls!
May 5: Capital City Half Marathon (13.1 mi)--Love this race & it should be one for the books as Columbus celebrates its bicentennial this year
July 22: Rock 'n' Roll Chicago Half Marathon (13.1 mi)--Hoping this will prepare me for the full marathon course in October
September (date not posted yet): Emerald City Half & Quarter Marathon (13.1 mi)--Tune-up for Chicago marathon
October 7: Chicago Marathon (26.2 mi)--My goal race for 2012
November 4: New York Marathon (26.2)--Fingers crossed I get in when they have the drawing in April and if I do, this will be run for "fun" & for the experience
