I thought I should put this out there just to cheer myself up. More later, but these are races that pique my interest right now.
I'm adding weight loss goals to this list. While I admittedly would like to get faster, I'm not sure whether it is realistic. I'm not I'll even be able to train enough to do these distances. I feel like I can realistically decide to lose weight, though, so even if I can't run as fast or as far as I want to by then, I can at least be happy about meeting some fitness goals. If I can't run fast, at least I'll look better in my race clothes.
Feb 7, 2010 - Superbowl Run, Santa Cruz - Lose 8 Lbs by then. I'll be at my initial Weight Watchers goal weight, be Sub-Athena for most races, and at my Hawaii 70.3 weight from May 2008.
April 11, 2010 - Santa Cruz Half Marathon - Lose 13 lbs by then.
May 2, 2010 - Wildflower Triathlon - Olympic Distance - Lose 18 lbs by then.
Late July - Wharf to Wharf - Lose 23 lbs by then. This will put me at a little less than the low end of my ideal weight range according to my BMI.
November 14, 2010 - Malibu Marathon - I don't know if I want to get much skinnier than my ideal weight range for my height. I'll ask myself again when I get there.
California International Marathon, whenever that is.
