My Scheduled Races

I hate to even call these "races." God knows, I won't be racing.  At all.  I'll be surviving, I think.  Anyhow, I wanted to FORCE myself to run and prepare for running before my big goal: the Rock 'n' Roll marathon in San Diego in June 2011.

I figured that if I paid to enter these runs, I wouldn't want to waste the money, so I would therefore practice... because I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for something and not participate.  And I'll be further damned if I'm going to participate without having prepared.  I also figured that if the races I chose benefited charities, I would be highly unlikely to skip out on them.

11/25/2010: Father Joe's Thanksgiving 5k (to benefit the homeless), San Diego - check!

12/11/2010: Venice Xmas 10k (to benefit homeless women and babies), Santa Monica - check!

01/23/2011: Tri-City Medical Center Half Marathon (my chosen charity is Heart for Africa), Carlsbad 
02/06/2011: Sun City Half Marathon (to benefit the Free Wheelchair Mission), Huntington Beach
(I had to cancel the above 2 due to studying for the CA bar.)  :(

03/05/2011: Borrego Springs Half Marathon, Borrego Springs - check!

04/02/2011: Warrior Dash Mud Run, Lake Elsinore - check!

04/17/2011: La Jolla Half Marathon, La Jolla - check!

06/04/2010: Rock 'n' Roll Marathon (benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society), San Diego!!!  I am so sad to report, but I have to cancel my marathon this year.  Life circumstances have made it unfeasible.  Hopefully, next year I can make it happen.
