My next race was supposed to be The Zombie Run on May 10, however, it has been pushed back to October 25, which happens to fall a few days before my birthday and Halloween. Seems fitting to me.
That means I need to find a new race, because races are my motivation to train. I’ll be extra lazy otherwise! Ever since I received the email notification of the date change I have been thinking about what type of race I want to sign up for next. I’ve decided that since I am already signed up for one fun run and will likely sign up for The Color Run again (SO much fun), I should look for an actual no-frills race.
I’m thinking about a 10k or something a little longer, but shorter than a half marathon. Here are my top picks:
Option 1: George Washington Bridge Challenge
- A 5k or 10k walk/run that raises money for the American Cancer Society
Option 2: Oakley New York Mini 10k
- A 10k in NYC for women
So, I have a decision to make. I’ll let you all know what I decide after I sign up for one.
