2015 Race Ideas

there's a lotta potential here....

The start of the new year means ... there's a whole year worth of races to think about!!!

Of course, we already have some events planned (you know how fast a RunDisney race sells out), but there's still plenty of room in the calendar to fill in some other races, places, ... and states.

So, in a perfect world, here's how the year will shape up.

January

Anaheim, CA
REGISTERED!!!
18
Anaheim, CA
REGISTERED!!!

I've wanted to run one of this guy's local
races for years - maybe 2015 is the one!

2/08
Independence of the Seas
REGISTERED!!!
14
Sedro Woolley, WA
A small local race organized by
a great local running club.


March

22
Arlington, WA
We ran this a couple of years ago - great little
race that raises money for a local charity. And cupcakes!!!


April

18
Seattle, WA
Part of a monthly race series that I've never managed to run. Nice to have a backup race for April.
25
Louisville, KY
This race is the same day as the Country Music Marathon... if I can swing working that race I *could* make it.

Sage Rat Dirty Rat 25K
Prosser, WA
Run 2 days, get three medals? Well, duh.
30
Seattle, WA
Really intrigued by a timed event...
can I keep moving for 7 hours?


June

13
Seattle, WA
REGISTERED!!!


July

12
Seattle, WA
I swore I would never run this race again, but there aren't a lot of other local halfs in July.


August

01
Coupeville, WA
I've considered this race for years -- nice scenery in a state park, plus the proceeds go to the Senior Class of the local high school.
15
Seattle, WA
Part of the monthly Magnuson race series that I've never managed to run. Maybe in August?


September

14
Day 1
Baker, MT
Center of the Nation Series
I have thought about this series for a couple
of years -- it would really help me fill in almost
all of my remaining "middle" states. Less
perfect this year, since it includes a 6th day in
Colorado, but still a chance to re-visit places
we went on our first road trip.
15
Day 2

Belle Fourche, SD
