Additional Upcoming Races

In the back of my mind, I've been considering the ING Miami Half just as long as I've had my eye on A1A in February, but I haven't committed to it and haven't really brought it up. But despite the fact that it is only 4 weeks away and only gives me another 3 weeks afterward until A1A, I have four-fold reasons for wanting to do it.
  • For one, it's supposed to be a nice course. I like nice courses. And because this is South Florida, that also means it's a flat course. I like flat courses.
  • It's close. Miami is about an hour's drive for me (sometimes less, sometimes more, depending on traffic) so it seems like a shame to pass up an opportunity to run something that is nearby.
  • After March, the race calendar gets pretty sparse in Florida, so I feel as though I should take advantage of the races while they're available.
  • I can do it. I know I can, so why not?

Thus? I'm signing up! So, I am henceforth thinking of January and February as a double-header: 2 half marathons in 2 months! Yippie!

But, not to be forgotten, I also committed to Nancy's 9 on the 9th in January, and hopefully others out in blogland will be joining me "virtually" for that race!**

** Correction: Thanks to Marathoner in Training who corrected me on the 9 on the 9th. I thought it was January, but it's really February. I'm still signed up for the event -- I just would've been about a month ahead of you guys (could've made me the winner by default, right?)

i'll see you on the 9th! nice work deciding to sign up--miami weather right now is a far cry from the 5 inches of snow we're getting at the moment...but if you want to come up and run a half in slightly less than ideal conditions, just let me know! :P

Marathoner in Training said...

Jess, the 9 on the 9th is Feb, not Jan. The races are probably not too close together, but also how much will you put into the first race, will there be a long recovery time? Or are you looking for something else out of it? You can see by my posts I was not an English major (any of the 5 degrees on my wall)

Here's to two half marys for you!!!

Excellent choices. :)

Marcy said...

Sweet!! Sounds like a most excellent idea to me :-)

Non-Runner Nancy said...

Sounds great to me!! Yes, 9 is in February. You would definitely be first if you did it in January.

I need to get on some more races once I get the travel schedule figured out. Good for you to keep pushing!!

J~mom said...

That is exactly what happens here...the races just totally dry up by April or May. We have the summer 5K series but that is about it. That is why I put the March half on my calender.

Your choices sound great!

The A1A is definitely one for my radar in the upcoming years. Rae from Running Into A Brick Wall used ING Miami as her first marathon and really enjoyed the course. :) I think you can do two half marys back to back...you're a rockstar...of course you can!

Laura N said...

Good for you for going for it. I imagine racing in Florida spring & summer is a terribly awful idea, so no wonder they are all in Jan & Feb. You'll do great!

Just12Finish said...

With those 5-mile splits, the half will be a piece 'o cake!

Who is SLB+? said...

Sounds like somebody is mentally preparing themselves to go 26.2?!? Half here, half there, is the a fall marathon in the offing...watch this space!

PS. you could totally do it!

teacherwoman said...

Sounds like you have a couple good races on your plate before the weather gets too hot!

miss petite america said...

girl, you are a running machine!

Nicole said...

Good luck with all the races!

Laurel said...

I did the Miami Half last year at the end of January then the Sarasota Half 5 weeks later. It's totally doable. You will do great.

By the way, the half is a great course. If I can get this IT Band under control, I will see you out there.

Neese said...

good to have goals! you will rock em both!! :)

Ted said...

I am jealous. I would love to go for ING Miami Half-Marathon. You will do GREAT !!! Good Luck !

J~mom said...

Hi Jess, We just saw "I am Legend". HOLY COW that was an intense movie!!! Really good!! Thanks for the recommendation!

Mendy said...

Jess, you can so do that. If I can do 2 in 2 months, then almost anyone can. Sounds like a good plan!
