Running!

I’m not very organized. I use the calendar on my iPhone religiously (thank goodness for the little alerts!), but nothing is quite so helpful to me as making lists and/or a big wall calendar (note to self– need giant wall calendar).

Races I am committed to doing:

Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle (Chicago, IL) 4/10/11: a great motivation to keep in shape through-out the dreary winter months & an even better excuse to see my friends in Chi-town. An easy, fast road trip, too.

MojoStLoco (St. Louis, MO) 6/25/11: I’m really excited about this crazy event– my friend, Jason, from Geeks In Running Shoes is organizing it. This will be my first big trek to meet & run w/ cool Twitter/DailyMile folks.

Races I plan to do: Budgeting is an issue for me, so I can’t just register for a bunch all at once.

Flirt with Dirt (Novi, MI) 6/11/11: One of my tweeps told me about this & it sounds really fun– and a race I’d feel comfortable doing in my VFFS (Vibram Five Fingers).

Warrior Dash (Mt. Morris, MI) 7/30/11: This looks to be a real blast & I would have registered already, but it’s the kind of thing you’d want to get a group together to do…  I’m also open to running this out-of-state, if it means running with my friends. Registration is only $45, if you register by 11:59pm on Jan. 7, 2011. Do it!

Detroit Free Press Marathon (Detroit, MI-Windsor, ON) 10/16/11: I would not be doing the full marathon, only the half. WHICH IS PLENTY. Also, I need to find & renew my passport. Whoopsie crumbs! Registration is half-price until Jan. 10, 2011! Do it!
