Five half-marathons, four 5k races, three sprint triathlons, two 10k races, and one full marathon. All in one year, and all in memory of someone who never knew she was strong.

And All is Right with the World

Just registered for the Denver Winter Distance Series, well the last two races of the series, anyway.  Got the Frosty's Frozen Five miler in January and the Snowman Stampede 10 miler in February. Both coincide with finishing out my mandatory rest time and then starting slowly with a new marathon training program. Should work out just fine.  I found a loophole in the closed registration for the Colorado Marathon.  If you pay a $250 charity registration fee, then you can run it and all of your money goes to non-profit race sponsors.  Seriously pondering this option.  It's steep, but is also a tiny amount compared to what I was going to spend to go to FL. I'm going to sleep on it.

Either way, nothing beats the feeling of having races on the calendar. One more week!!

Also, check this out: I'm participating in the Run for the Bling of It Challenge for 2011.  It's a very cool way to unite the running blogger community and celebrate everyone's wins by showing off race bling.  Don't have to ask me twice; I love me some race bling!!  Here is the link:

Run for the Bling of It


  1. Have fun - the Winter Distance series are great low key races!

  2. I have done the Winter Distnce series and I really enjoyed it. I hope you have a great time!

  3. I keep looking at them and just haven't committed. I may still end up doing one of them.

    Run for the Bling looks like a fun idea!
