Making Plans

It’s almost here, the time of year when the runners who live in the sun belt (otherwise know as Hades) start to base build for a fall half marathon (or marathon if you are much more hardcore than myself.) I have spent a lot of time deciding how much I want to race and where. So far my tentative plans are.

A Race:

Space Coast Marathon & Half- Marathon in Cocoa Beach.

Space Coast Marathon & Half-Marathon Cocoa Beach Florida

The expo is at Kennedy Space Center and the official snack is the moon pie. Plus there is a space-themed finishers medal. Last year was really awesome and would look great in my office.

So cool.

Miracle Miles 15K

This was my first (and only) 15K. It is a great distance and there are not enough of them. It also benefits the Alexander Center for Neonatology at the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies. If I can help babies and run a really fun race, count me in.

So there you have the two races that I am definitely going to run in the fall. I may toss in a few 5K’s (maybe not if my quest to a sub-30 does not pan out but who knows) and a 10K. I would also like to try a short trail race if I can find one in the area.

Do you have your fall racing schedule planned out? Am I missing out on any really awesome races?

  1. I’m signed up for Space Coast! woo hoo! I did the 15k last year and it was so freakin’ hot out that I swore off this race. Though, I would probably register 2 days in advance if I could be guaranteed cool weather. :-) So we’ll see what Mr. Weatherman says in a few months.

    • Awesome! Maybe there will be enough people running to do some kind of meet-up. I hope the weather is cool enough because joining a gym has lowered my tolerance to running in the heat and humidity. Having another option has made me mostly choose to run in the ac.

  2. I have decided that any new races like 5k I am going to sign up last minute since I have had a crazy schedule lately but I have one half planned out and that is about it! Your races sounds like so much fun, the medal sounds great!

    • It really is hard to plan so far in advanced when you are busy. I just get tired of paying the highest possible entry fee to every race because I wait until the last minute to enter.
