2018 Race Calendar

Only a month and a bit into 2018 and my race calendar is looking almost full! I have a variety of races, from a full marathon to family fun runs of 5km ­čÖé


Phoenix Marathon – My second full marathon, my last one was May 2011! T-minus 17 days!

Last year’s half:


Womens Fun Run – 5km – I do this race yearly with my Mom and now the girls, it is a fun race to do for Mother’s Day.

Woodys RV World Marathon – 10km, maybe 21km? I have not signed up yet but plan to as I like this local race and have not run it in many years. I just need to pick a distance!


Troubled Monk Run – 10km with the family & stroller. Another local fav! Registration has not opened yet but we will be signed up as soon as it does. How can you go wrong with a race that has beer after?!


Mud Hero Alberta – I missed this race last year so am excited to do it again. It is totally a fun race I do with a friend of mine. I find it pushes me outside my comfort zone too – always a good thing!

Melissa’s Road Race Banff – 21km – I ran this race 6 years ago I think and love any race in the mountains in the fall so I decided to bite the bullet and do this one again.

I am thinking┬á I might do another 10km or half in the summer months but if so it will be a spur of the moment thing. I am on the fence of how much time I want to spend training this summer still – at the end of marathon training is never the time to think of these things!


Whats on your race calendar? Any new to you races?!

    I kind of have race FOMO, even though running is not my favourite. With kindergarten drop off and pick up cutting into work hours and having to make up time on off weeks, plus not having a treadmill to run in evenings, I just do not have the ability to run right now. Which sucks because I really wanted to run Rocky Mountain Soap this year. I will probably do Troubled Monk 5k because I can't miss out on that one and maybe I'll be able to run something in the fall.

      I could not image how busy that keeps you! I think part of the reason I signed up for the marathon was to make myself to run in the winter haha. I find it hard to run in the cold, dark months. I am probably taking a break after Phx for at least March – I want to run outside, no more treadmill!
