Looks like it is going to be a GREAT day! I checked my email this morning, while laying in the warm comfort of my own bed, and found this:
Dear Once and Future Runner (obviously I changed this):
Congratulations! You have been chosen in the lottery and are officially registered for the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run on April 7, 2013. We are looking forward to a spectacular day in the Nation’s Capital.
If you haven’t already, you’ll receive an additional email from Marathonguide.com, our registration provider, outlining your credit card charges. Please note that the charges will show as being from “Marathonguide.com” on your statement.
If you did not enroll in our free ten-week Online Virtual Training Program for the 10 mile or our On-site Training Program hosted by Potomac River Running, you will have an opportunity to sign up in January.
No Additional Purchases
During registration you did not opt to purchase the shirt upgrade, finisher medal or packet delivery. You may still add a shirt upgrade, medal or packet delivery to your registration by visiting the Purchase Additional Items Form.
There was obviously more to the Email, but it seemed silly to post the whole thing. But, this has confirmed that I WILL be racing in 2013, come hell or high water! It also means, I need to figure out what I my race schedule is going to look like this coming year.
I do realize that I am planning races for after the end-of-the-world, but we all need hobbies right? We can’t just run after all!
So, I have my “definites” and my “would like to” list so far. Having 2 active children, I need to work around their Schedules.
Races (“would like too” are in italics)
Marine Corps 17.75k – 23 March
Cherry Blossom 10 miler – 7 April — Registered!
Ocean City Half Marathon – 27 April
Tough Mudder PA – June 1st
Ben Moore Half Marathon -11 Aug.
Baltimore Running Festival – Half Marathon – 12 October
Marine Corps Marathon – 27 Oct 27
I haven’t looked into the 5k’s yet, but I am fairly certain that I am doing another Warrior Dash with my wife and neighbors.
Do you have any suggestions for races (Any length) that I should look into in Maryland/Northern VA/D.C.?
