Now that the Shamrock half is behind me, the big question is what’s next?
I’m not registered for any races right now, but I’d like to pick up some shorter races this spring — maybe 5Ks and 10Ks. Nothing that requires too much of a training plan, but hopefully something that I can convince a few friends to join me at.
And I’m already trying to figure out what my fall schedule will look like. I’m thinking I might target one major half and then just fill in other free weekends with shorter stuff.
Emily and I have been emailing some fall race possibilities back and forth, and last night, I spent some time digging through back issues of Runner’s World until I found the article on best half marathons for 2014.
Does anyone know anything about those two races? We’ve never done either of them and I’d love to hear what you think if you have!
I’m also super open to hearing suggestions for other great races in the DC, MD, VA area, or even something outside that radius — as long as it’s a reasonable drive.
