Race City!!!

This week I signed up for a few races!  I am sooo excited!!!  I have been itching to race more and start training harder.

So here’s what’s going on with my race schedule.  The first race is only a month away.  The Birch Bay Half is a low key race across the border.  Nothing too fancy but I have been searching for a local half so this is perfect.  I’m not expecting an outstanding time since I will only have 4 weeks to train.  But it will be a great benchmark for my upcoming races.

The one I am most excited about is the lululemon SeaWheeze!  It takes place right in the heart of Vancouver.  Last year I really hoped to run but we ended up arriving in BC the week after it took place. The best part, a free pair of lululemon running shorts with the registation fee.  And one of my besties may be coming to run it with me:)

The biggest race is the Vancouver Sun Run.  Last year close to 50,000 runners participated.  And I hear it is a super fast course, which is perfect for my sub-60min goal.

4/21 THE SUN RUN 10K

 The most festive race goes to the adidas Shamrock 15k run (well I assume it will be since it’s on St. Paddy’s Day).  Not only does this race draw some huge crowds,  it also happens to be in Portland.  Can you say, road trip!

The most global is the NWM virtual 10k.  Anyone can it do anywhere.  All you need is a Nike+ device. Pretty amazing, eh?!?
