It’s official, friends.
This May, I will complete my sixth half marathon! The One America 500 Festival Mini Marathon.
You may remember I wrote a recap post all about last year’s mini marathon!
Next week, the NIFS Mini Marathon Training Program meets for our orientation and since I am a running group pace leader I thought it might be a good idea to actually sign up for the race.
I will be leading the 8:30 pace group, so I decided to seed myself so I can have a preferred start time. Last year I did NOT seed myself and I felt like I was dodging people the entire race and I was never able to settle into my pace. It may not be any different this year, but hopefully seeding myself will help!
How Do You Decide Which Races to Run?
As I was signing up for my race, I started to think about other races I would like to run.
- The Walt Disney Half Marathon (maybe even the full!)
- And all of the Zooma Races look great too!
That being said, all of the races I HAVE completed have been local in Indianapolis for Fort Wayne. For me, I guess I pick the races I run based on convenient…and budget 😉
All of my dream races, however, are based on location. I think running a race would be a great way to explore a new city!
Now it’s your turn to share with me:
Question of the Day:
- How do you decide which races YOU run?
- What is one of the FAVORITE races you have completed and why did you love it? Location? Race swag? Expo?
