Despite the fact that we’re just emerging from our first true cold snap of the winter, I’m thinking ahead to my spring race calendar. While not all of these races will end up being full efforts, this is where you’ll find me running pretty darn hard in the coming months.
March 18th: New Bedford Half Marathon, New Bedford, Mass.
April 14th: Unplugged Half (very likely a simulation run)
May 19th: Bedford Rotary 12K (last hard workout pre-Vermont City!)
May 27th: Vermont City Marathon
Following VCM, I’ll transition to some shorter distances for the hotter summer months. I’m also planning on taking the month of June off from work, school, coaching, running etc, as my AMCAS application will be submitted and I’ll have the first real break I’ve had in almost two years. I don’t know where I’ll go, but I know there won’t be any scheduled running beyond extending my fitness to a few required races.
