Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week we’re talking about your Spring bucket list. I know many races have been cancelled (3 of mine). For now there is no actual training for me. No worries. I won’t stop running. I am following a plan but my main goal is to run mostly for fun and not worry about pace or distance.
This week’s Tuesday Topic: What’s on your Spring bucket list? You can write about this topic or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to link up with Kim and Zenaida! Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!
I started writing this post early this month. This was before the situation came to be the way it is now and before any race cancellations. I was scheduled to run the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle (March 22), Garmin Oz Half Marathon (April 18), and the Fargo Half Marathon (May 8). The last 2 were in two new states for me. Actually the Fargo Half Marathon was rescheduled for August 29 and I am not sure if I will make it to ND. The race will be right after the first week of school and I would have to take off on Friday (Wednesday is the first day with the students) in order to make it to the race.
With so many race cancellations who knows when my next race will be. I haven’t signed up yet but I am hoping it will be the Elmhurst 4 on the 4th of July (I know it isn’t a Spring race but just go along with me). I’ve run this race since 2013. My PR is 39:39 in 2014. One of my goals this year is to PR in all race distances. <
I am also interested in the Wintrust Lakefront 10 Miler/5k. This was scheduled to take place on April 18 but has been postponed to July 11. I’ve done the 10 mile race before but racing in July is not something that I like to do. I might be more inclined to run the 5k but that distance is also difficult.
For the moment there are no plans to run in a different state. There are a few I am looking into but won’t make any decisions till maybe this summer. Hopefully by then things will be better and races will be taking place.
What are you running plans for the Spring? What are your race plans for the Summer?
