TBD (probably mid-December) - Jingle Bell Jog 8K
TBD (probably late March) - Ocean Drive Marathon*
TBD (probably late March) - Shamrock Marathon*
* = Whichever marathon I decide upon (I'm picking just one, in either late 2009 or early 2010), it'll be my very first marathon!
Obviously, the above schedule still needs a bit more fine-tuning, & as it's still fairly early, nothing's been set in stone just yet.
As I continue to build my mileage with the intent of running my first marathon in late 2009 or early 2010, it certainly feels great to be lining up possible venues for next year, & at the same time, to begin thinking about next year's prospects & goals!
So what are your big hopes & dreams for the upcoming year? What are your goals? Are you at the outset of your fitness program (i.e., trying to get back into shape), or have you been working out for a while now & are perhaps looking to set some new PRs?
Have you begun to think about road races for 2009 & if so, what racing events do you plan to do?
Here's to fulfilling those big hopes & dreams in 2009 & beyond!
