I can’t believe I am planning 2012 already. But since race registrations are cheaper when you register early I am already signed up for one and have others planned (and reminders on my calendar for when I can register). By now my guess is you have seen my posts on marathons and why I am not running one this year. I have been doing a lot of thinking about 2012 and if I am ready to go back to 26.2. I have decided I am not ready to commit to the time or the mental changes I would need to make to train for another 26.2.
I have decided that I will be running Ragnar again. I will be running the National Half again (even though RnR bought them). It falls on St. Patty’s day, which also happens to be three days before my birthday. And I get to run with my DC friends. I will be running the Green Bay Half with some of my twitter/blogger friends. I am going to run the IceBreaker Indoor Marathon Relay with twitter friends. I am not going to sign up for too many races like I did this fall. I am going to race smarter instead of just training smarter. I am going to do races with friends and have a good time. I am not going to obsess over getting a PR every time.
