On April 22, the Bradenton Conquistador Half Marathon announced a new date for the third annual event. The races will be in December rather than October this year.
That's good, because it will probably be cooler weather. Bad, because it conflicts with other area races.
Save the NEW Date!
That date change adds a twist to my schedule, but I really want a new half PR at a new race. I chose this as one of my goal races for 2018. We'll see what happens!

Set Your 2018 Running Goals
If you're like me, you spent time over the holidays researching upcoming races. (Look for my links to race discounts at the end of this post.)
I'm using a beautiful BELIEVE training journal I received as a gift to stay on track with my running. I can plan upcoming races and record my efforts all in one place.
After filling in the pages, I set my personal running goals for 2018. Here they are:
Run Two Challenge Races
1. St Pete Beach Classic Duo Challenge 10K + 5K on January 13, 2018.
2. Best Damn Race Safety Harbor Challenge 10K + 5K on February 3, 2018.
As you can see, the Challenges are early in the year. I feel ready, but I've never run two races in one day.
My plan is to use the St. Pete Beach Classic as a baseline, then look for improvement at the Best Damn Race Challenge. We'll see what happens!
Run a Personal Best in Two Half Marathons
I have three race options for my new half marathon personal records.
Okay, my goals are set. Now I have to get out there and run, run, and race!
I'm excited about the year ahead, and hope you are too.

I love running running in Sarasota. It's a thrill every time I go over the John Ringling Causeway Bridge and look out over Sarasota Bay. The First Watch race course takes you to St. Armand's Circle, past the Ringling Museum, and beautiful neighborhoods with mature trees. Plus, you can't beat the start/finish at Van Wezel. It's a beautiful spot. The crowd is always ready to run at this race. It's a high energy, fun event.
I'm extra excited to run in 2018 because I had a DNS last year due to a serious sinus infection. I'm determined to make a comeback this year! My goal is to follow my training schedule and bring home a PR for this course.
