2016 Race Calendar

How is it already time to talk about spring and summer races?! I love every race season and typically my goal is one race a month. This is for a few reasons, training time, money – races are $$$, and scheduling – I like my weekends free in the warm months!

I will talk more about training in April since I do need to make a few training plans but for now I am sharing what I am currently registered to run.

May 2016 – Only Women’s Fitness Fun Run – 5km 

Not really a run since I will not even be cleared TO run but it is the thirds year my Mom and I have done this run. It will be Avery’s second year doing her 100m diaper dash.

June 2016 – Troubled Monk Run – 10km

This is about one month after I am cleared to run so 10km might be ambitious but it is going to be a fun run so I am not worried about it. Chad, a bunch of friends, co-workers are running it too and it includes beer after!

July 2016 – Lacombe Half Marathon – 10km

Registration has not opened up yet but I am going to sign up for this race and attempt a 10km PR 🙂

Avery and I before last year’s race, I finished in 50:43.

August 2016 –Mud Hero

This is always a fun race, I run it with friends (Chad is too fast for me at this one!) and have a great time. Spoiler alert – I am also an Ambassador for it this year!

September 2016 – Canmore Half Marathon – Half Marathon

My first half of 2016!! And probably my only! I wanted to run a half but also did not want to be too consumed with it after having baby so the timing for a fall half seemed perfect. It will be a little get away for our family as well.
