As a part of my goals before I hit 30 (which is just a year a way), I decided to run a half marathon. I am going to break up hitting 13 miles by doing a few runs along the way. Here's a list of the ones I am planning to do.....
1. 5K (3.1m) --- http://www.kcmarathon.org - October 17, 2009
2. 8K (5m) --- http://cliffhangerrun.com - November 1st, 2009
3. 10K (6.2m) --- http://www.childrenstlc.org/Events_GroundhogRun.html - Jan 31, 2010
4. Half-Marathon - 21.1K (13.1m) --- http://www.hospitalhill.com - June 5, 2010
**Maybe: a 15K (9.3m) http://www.ci.st-joseph.mo.us/parks/parks_recreation.cfm - May, 2010
BONUS #1: I found out that my job pays for a certain number of entries to select races in the KC area. I'm gonna find out the exact ones & see how I can qualify!
BONUS #2: One of my friends also decided to run a 1/2 marathon before she turned 30. We are running once a week together. It's been great having a workout partner.
