For months, I’d been facing what I thought was quite the dilemma – no races in my area!
Yesterday, that all changed. Apparently races don’t get planned until January? Who knew? (not me!)
Now I’m trying to decide between:
- February 26 Berryville Treasure Hunt 5K
- March 6 Run for Haiti 5K
- March 19 5 Mile run for the Children’s Center
- March 20 Reston 10 miler
- April 9 Brambleton 10K
- May 1 Loudoun County Half Marathon
- May 7 Frederick Half Marathon
Obviously I can’t do them all! I want to do at least one 5K at the beginning and end of racing season (there are so many 5Ks I didn’t list the ones at the end of the season here). I want to do a 10K…and I’m waffling between a 5 mile race and a 10 mile race!
I’m really torn between the half marathons. Loudoun is my backyard, but the Frederick 1/2 marathon has an expo…and everyone gets a medal! Is it bad that I really want a medal from my half marathon?
I’m going to hold out until there are more details about each race. Specifically, which 1/2 marathon will give me something shiny for participating!
Anyone have any experience with these races? Which ones would you pick?
