2011 Race list (Thus Far)

I have a lot of races coming up, so I thought it might be fun to put them all in one place!

Doyle’s Pub Emerald Necklace 5 Miler

5 Miles Jamaica Plain, MA 4/10/11

From what I’ve heard this is a great 5 mile course along the Emerald Necklace in Jamaica Plain. It’s complete with a great free race T-Shirt & free beer, how can you beat that?

BAA 5k

5k Boston, MA 4/17/11

A fun & popular 5k that takes place the day before the marathon. It’s officially the most expensive 5k I have ever registered for, but the awesome t-shirt, medal, fast field & finishing under the official Boston Marathon finish line makes it worth it.

Jamestown Bridge 10k

10k Jamestown, RI 4/23/11

This race is apparently very hilly and challenging and weaves throughout scenic Jamestown and Newport, RI. I definitely need the hill race experience so this is a no-brainer in my book. Plus Katy & I will be running this one together!

Boston Marine Corps Honor Run

5k South Boston, MA 5/7/11

Walking distance from my apartment and a fun way to kick off an old fashioned day drinking party, the Kentucky Derby. I’m looking forward to getting a lot of friends involved in this fun and flat 5k.

Heartbreak Hill Half Marathon

Half Marathon Newton, MA 5/15/11

Oh Heartbreak, we meet again. Remember that time I vowed to never run you again? Well, those emotions were fleeting and I’m hungry and ready for more! I’m looking forward to improving upon last year’s time which given my awful race, won’t be terribly difficult

JP Morgan Corporate Challenge

3.5 Miles Boston, MA 6/2/11

One of my favorite spring/summer events in Boston! It starts and ends at Boston Common, and it’s a great chance to get out of the office with coworkers and get your sweat on followed by a few celebratory brews afterwards.

Yarmouth Run for the Arts 5k

5k Bass River, MA 6/18/11

This race is in the neighborhood of my family’s house on the cape, and it also happens to be on my Birthday! Plus, I can convince Foxy to run with me πŸ™‚

Nantucket Triathlon

Sprint Tri Nantucket Island, MA 7/23/11

I’m pretty excited for this one, it’s a great excuse to get to Nantucket during the peak summer months and spend time with friends! This is the weekend before SF so I will be keeping this fun and avoiding ruining my taper.

San Francisco Marathon

Full Marathon San Francisco, CA 7/31/11

This is the biggie. I absolutely CAN’T WAIT. I have a good feeling about this one.

Hyannis Sprint II Triathlon

Sprint Triathlon Hyannis, MA 9/10/11

I’m excited to have another sprint triathlon on the schedule that I can go full bore and actually race. It’s helpful that this is close to my family’s house and it’s a great chance to see my mom πŸ™‚

That’s it for now. I’m considering a few fall Half Marathons, hoping to get a spot on a Reach the Beach Relay team, the Tufts 10k and numerous other races. Decisions, decisions!

What does your race schedule look like? Do you have any suggestions of races I should add?

    Wow, you have so many fun races lined up!! I am jealous πŸ™‚ Once Boston is over I’m definitely going to assess how I’m feeling and start to sign up for some fun things!
    I am doing the Boilermaker 15k in Utica in July, with my mom and brother, which I’m super excited about. But I definitely need to look into some of these – thanks for posting!
    That’s awesome that you’re doing the San Fran marathon. I bet it will be gorgeous! Would love to run a race in Cali someday.

    Every time I see a race line up, I notice so many more that I want to run. You have lots of fun ones to look forward. This is the year I will definitely go for a sprint tri. Exciting! I am doing quite a few races this season, but one of my favorites is The Blessing of the Fleet 10 Miler in Narragansett, RI.
