Last March I was signed up for the Shamrock Run 5K as my second race. Then also registered for Earth Day Run 5K in April and Rum Run 10K in May. I was enjoying having a race each month keeping me motivated to get my running in between races. This lead me to decide I was going to complete one race every month for 12 months. And well, the Zena Road Run 15K this weekend completed my goal. Woohoo!
Some months were smaller, June I did an un-timed 5K as a running buddy with Girls On The Run. Some were bigger, September I did Warrior Dash 5K, Corvallis Fall Festival 5K and the Color Run 5K. And some were longer, July’s Run In Country half marathon and August with Hood To Coast relay.
So what now… I am continuing the trend and have at least one race planned through 2013. Since I am training for two marathons, in a run group and have many running friends the motivation to get out there is coming from many angles but for now I’m not ready to break my streak.
