Upcoming Races

I've only done one official race this year which was the Surf City USA 5K. That was on the first weekend of February. I decided to be a little proactive and sign up for some races for the months coming up.

Here's what I signed up for:

April 4th-35th Annual Seal Beach 5K
April 5th-Carlsbad 5000
May 25th-Laguna Hills Memorial Day 5K

and I'm currently debating these races:

March 15th-Coaster Run 5K
September 6th-2009 Disneyland Half Marathon

I'm on the fence for two races, both on May 3rd.

PCRF's Cinco de Mayo Run "Reaching for the Cure" 5K and
the AVIA OC Half Marathon

My running club is training for the PCRF Cinco de Mayo Run. And my gals from the Junior League are going to do the AVIA OC Half Marathon for fundraising also. I'm soo torn. I haven't been training much for the 1/2 marathon. I was going to do my first half marathon at Disney in September. Angry Husband told me to do the Half Marathon since all the girls are really excited about. They are making t-shirts and everything.

I can't wait for Daylight Savings next weekend. I'm going to try and do some more running at night. Maybe I can even get Angry Toddler to sit in the jogging stroller, right....

Oh, and I'm a member of athlinks. Have you all heard about athlinks? Athlinks is like a Facebook for athletes. It tracks all your races and race times. It's very cool to see how much I've improved in the past few years. My friend, Casey, got my hooked on it. She's training for her first triathalon. Go Casey!

P.S. The photo above was from the SBSD Mud Run. This is one of my favorite race photos ever!


  1. I think I'm going to do the Cinco de Mayo HALF!!! :):)

  2. Kudos to you, sister. I wish I could run! I've tried the Couch Potato to 5K and it nearly killed me. So, I walk instead. Not nearly as cool.

  3. You are so good! This is awesome! I don't know how you find the time...LOVE the mud running photo! You're wild!

  4. Chic...I'm still debating on the runs..Good for u doing the 1/2.

    And everyone else...I do these runs cause they give me a goal. They keep me running. I know that i have an upcoming run so it forces me to stay fit.

  5. Maybe I'll head out to the Carlsbad race and wave at you from my comfy chair with the umbrella and cooler. Ha! Good luck with them all!

  6. i'm doing the disneyland 1/2. or at least i'm planning on it. i figured it was a good goal, & would help me lose the baby weight i've put on!


Thank You for taking the time to comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. At least I know that someone in my life actually agrees with me.
