An Interesting Idea ...

What if you ran every distance this year?  Started from the bottom and moved to the top.

Half Marathon
Full Marathon

North Carolina's might look like this:
5K - Run for the Roses 2/7/10
8K - HardCore Serious Trail Runner 2/20/10
10K - Oak Island Lighthouse Run 4/17/2010
Half Marathon - San Francisco Half Marathon 7/25/2010 (totally cheating here, but I like to travel)
Half Marathon - Nike Women's Half Marathon 10/17/2010 (because I do every year)
Full Marathon - OBX Marathon 11/14/2010

Seems like it would be a good gear up for the big one - and keep you on track for the year - and keep your legs fresh. 

I'm still trying to pick my races for the year - we'll see if we could squeeze a few in here!


  1. very interesting.

    what i if i already started out my new year's day with a 10k? can i go backward to a 5k? i'm signed up for a 12 miler in feb. with molly...and will probably either do a half in SL or here in april or june. that just leaves a marathon. hmmm...

  2. That does look like a nice, fresh schedule...not too much, not too little. I especially like the marathon at the end of the year!

  3. Can I jump around? And maybe skip the full marathon? Ha! I love it.
