In light of recent circumstances (shoulder separation, blood clot, four week hiatus from running… all that fun stuff), I had to make some adjustments to my race schedule for this season.
Robbie Burns 8K Road Race (January 25 ’09)
Took place the day after my injury. (Incidentally, my friend’s son who ran with my bib placed first for my age group.)
Chilly Half Marathon (March 1 ’09)
Several of my friends were running this event so I decided to get involved by volunteering. It turned out to be a great experience. (See last post.)
Around the Bay 30K (March 29 ’09)
This is the second year in a row I have sold my bib due to injury. Next year will determine if third time’s the charm or if I’m just cursed.
Blue Nose Marathon (May 17 ’09)
At first I planned to switch from the full to the half, but my hubby and I (after much deliberation) have decided to postpone our trip to Nova Scotia until September due to the number of work days I missed with my medical issues. Hopefully we can incorporate the Bluenose into our 2010 plans.
Sporting Life 10K (May 3 ’09)
Mississauga Half Marathon (May 10 ’09)
(See sidebar ~~~> for complete ’09 schedule.)
I’m excited about both of my new events on the schedule. Training kicks off next week! I would love to see a PR in both events, but I’m still easing back into running at this point, so expectations are not too high.
I’m going to have another exciting announcement tomorrow (hopefully) so stay tuned!
