12 Days of Blogmas #6 – 15 Races in 2015

I can’t believe that my 12 Days of Blogmas is half way over, and I really can’t believe that I’ve managed to post on my blog so consistently for this many consecutive days!

As 2014 comes to a close, I’m making plans for 2015. Not resolutions per se, but goals and plans. More specifically, I’m trying to figure out which races to sign up for. I’d love to do 15 races in 2015! I’ve got some of them figured out for sure. Maybe you can help me figure out the others??????

January 1: Hair of the Dog 5 mile; Spartanburg, SC. This is a local race and looks pretty fun. The course will take me through my grandparents’ old neighborhood, and I’m really looking forward to running through there! I’m following the race with a Polar Plunge at Paris Mountain State Park. Me, along with several other insane people, will be jumping into the frigid waters at the park. Then, we’ll reward our craziness with hot chocolate and doughnuts. Sounds perfect to me!

March 15: Asheville Half Marathon; Asheville, NC. This race goes through Biltmore Estates, so it’s bound to be beautiful! I’m training for a PR for this half. While I’m hoping to break 2 hours, it might not be possible on this course.
May 31: Raleigh 70.3; Raleigh, NC. My first half Ironman! Very excited about this!
June TBD: Tri the Vineyards; Braselton, GA. I did this tri last year on my birthday weekend, and it was a great event!

August 8: Lake Logan Half; Canton, NC. I’ve heard great things about this race, and I want to have a second 70.3 triathlon on the calendar.

So, that’s 5 races that I definitely want to do. There’s some local sprint triathlons and 5k/10ks that I’ll certainly add to the calendar.

What races are you planning on doing? Got any good recommendations for me? Need a teammate for a relay? I’d love to add a relay of some sort!

  • I am so excited that you will be doing your 1st Half Ironman!!! I won’t race Raleigh, because it is to close to 70.3 Chattanooga but I will be there to cheer on some friends. I am adding your name to my list! 🙂 YOU WILL HAVE A BLAST!

    • I wish I could do Chattanooga – so many of my friends are going to be there! Unfortunately, it’s right before my ballet school’s big end of the year demonstration. There’s no way I could get the day off 🙁 Good luck at your race! And thanks for adding me to the list of people to cheer for!
