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.

The Conquistadors are Coming!
Now this is one cool medal! The First Annual Bradenton Half Marathon will take place on Saturday, October 15, 2016 in downtown Bradenton, Florida.
If the medal doesn't entice you to run, then the race course will. The race starts in downtown Bradenton by taking runners out and back over The Green Bridge. Runners then move along the Manatee River, loop into town, and finish back at the waterfront.
The Hernando De Soto Historical Society sponsors the race which will include music, cheerleaders, and conquistadors along the race course. Proceeds go to student scholarships.
Did you notice that the medal has two holes in it? That's so you can mount your medal to a plaque. There will be plaques available for purchase after the race.
This is where you'll find me writing instead of running. (But, you know I'll be writing about running, right?)
