I'll be honest - I have some major race envy right now.
My sis ran a race last week and is running another tomorrow.
Caitlin raced a tri today and I think a tri tomorrow!
Meghann and company are racing a 70.3 tomorrow.
Kirst is running the harvest half tomorrow too.
I just want to race! I know I have great reasons to not race, and I don't want to come off like a complainer, but man o man I can't wait to lace up my sneaks and get training!
I figured in order to keep my envy under control, I'd take a peek at a few races that I might like to do in the future. I don't want to sign up or commit to anything at this point since I really have no idea what my body and life will be like after this little baby comes, but I figured it couldn't hurt to look.
On February 11, there's the hypothermic half. That's an option.
In April, the Glencoe Icebreaker 10 km happens and then the Police Half comes about a week later, both of which I did this year, so those are both possibilities too.
I don't think I want to look at anything in 2011, though maybe a late 5 km could be an option. Since I had to stop running what feels like years ago, I don't want to have any thoughts of grandeur thinking I can bust out a nice 10 km a month after delivery, but I could do something like the santa shuffle which I believe is a 5 km, if my body cooperates.
I hope everyone racing this weekend has a great time and does their best! I know weather poses issues for lots, but remember that you just can't control it, so don't waste your time worrying about it!
Anyone else racing this weekend? Anyone else feeling a little green with envy?
