Well, technically the exact quote was "Despite running without pushing myself physically, (in 2014) I still found myself being competitive with myself MENTALLY, attempting to maintain or beat my race record of 2013 - 15 bibs on my wall."
So ... you know where this post is going, right? I mean, of course we all need to know how I'm getting to 15 bibs again in 2015!!
That means today's post is a recap of where I am thus far in 2015.
Total races - 4
Total bibs - 3
Feb - Tri-U-Mah, AKA my first ever triathlon (although no bib was received)
April - Hot Chocolate
May - Lake Minnetonka Half Relay
May - Cinco de Miler
Now comes the tough part. How do I get 12 more bibs squeezed in this year?! Below is a list of races I'm either already registered for or think I may reasonably attend (I've linked the races to their registration pages in case you want to run with me, too!)
If I add the below with the above, my new counts would be:
Total races - 14
Total bibs - 13
May - Run the Inferno
June - Carlyle Sherstad 5K/10K, Rainbow Run
July - Freedom 5, Gandy Dancer Fly In
August - Webster Education Fund 5K
September - Suds Run, Women Run the Cities
October - TC 10 Mile (pending lotto), Mankato 10K/Half
November & December - Weather Pending
This tentative race schedule leaves me with at least 2 more bibs to earn. Plus a whole lotta free weekends in June, July and August. Not to mention I still need to settle on a real, outdoor tri ... though I do have my eye on this one (have you done it - if yes, let's chat).
So now I turn to you ... suggestions?! I need some race ideas for 2015!!
