My Fall race schedule is starting to come together. I did have the Peachtree Road Race on there or July 4th, but I transferred the bib, and decided to stay in town and do a local 4th of July race instead. Peachtree is still a bucket list race for me, so maybe in 2019.
July 4th – Watermelon 5k race in Winter Park, Florida. This is a hometown 5k race that I love doing. It’s definitely a hot one each year, but I do look forward to running with friends and ice cold watermelon after!
October 21st – PNC Atlanta 10 Miler in Atlanta, Georgia. While I’m missing Peachtree in July, I am looking forward to heading to Atlanta in October for this 10 miler. I will be running this one as a BibRavePro and I plan on getting in my hill training for it!
December 1st – OUC Orlando Half Marathon in Orlando, Florida. This is a goal race for me this season. I want to PR at this 13.1, as I haven’t PR’ed at a half in awhile. Going to train for up to 16 or 17 miles beforehand as I think that’s going to help me in doing that. My best time at OUC was in 2012 when I finished in 2:57:34. My half PR is currently 2:53:09 at the 2016 Swamphouse Half Marathon. So, I’m shooting for a 2:50 finish.
February 10th – 26.2 with Donna Half Marathon in Jacksonville, FL. I love this race, and I’m looking forward to running the half again in February. They have changed the course again, so it’s now starting and finishing at Neptune Beach. I first ran DONNA in 2013 as my first marathon, and have since run it a total of four times, the marathon distance twice, and half marathon twice as well.
I will have more races to plug in my schedule, one likely in November and another in January. Those will likely be half marathons that I will run as a pacer. As soon as I get confirmation, I’ll update my race schedule. I love being a pacer, so I look forward to doing a couple more races as one soon.
How is your Fall race schedule looking? Anyone running a marathon?
