The Spring race line-up is filling itself up pretty nicely – the legs now have two DC adventures on the agenda (both of which they’ve stomped on before), with a to-be-decided, late Spring destination* marathon in the works.
Last week I finally signed up for what will be my third round with one particular race in the District – Suntrust CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield Rock ‘n’ Roll National Marathon and Half Marathon.
Yeah. Say that three times, fast.
I made the Full decision once, but that was enough. There are more reasons than one to stick with the half, in my opinion – so that’s what we’re doing! The big difference is that this time around, I’ll be racing for more than myself.
Officially FundRacing (aka fundraising + racing) for the first time, I’ll be running for Back on My Feet!
If you would like to help out, my fundraising page can be found here, on active.com. Thank you!
Assuming things go well, this will not only be the third time my feet run this course, but it’ll also be the third time they PR on it. We’ve got plans…
Who else is in for the Rock ‘n’ Roll style DC race?? This is a popular race to begin with; I imagine it’ll be fun to have the RnR peeps join us for the fiesta! I’m prepared to do some convincing for those of you who are on-the-fence, or looking for an early-spring destination race…
Yesterday, another race was added to the list in the form of a Congratulatory e-mail from the folks behind the Credit Union Cherry Blossom race. We, as Team Podrepac, entered the lottery and got lucky!
Whoop! I will be there, and the Cherry Blossoms better be, too.
Last time I ran this race (2009), the blossoms were long gone. This means you get to run a long, boring loop around Haines Point with nothing to look at but the green grass and the dirty Potomac river.
Who else will be joining us on a hopefully sunny, pink-flower filled DC morning?
*Destinations are still being considered for the full 26.2 adventure. I will BQ, I will travel and I will add a new state to the race list! Suggestions are welcomed.
I like how you’re lining up, Spring! There are a few things to be added to your agenda, but I think we’re off to a great start.
Now DC, if we could just quickly put this “winter” thing behind us, that would be ideal. The legs and I have some business to run to!
