A Twitter friend twisted my arm (not really) and convinced me to run The Denver Rock n Roll Half Marathon!
I had been contemplating doing a half marathon this year, while it wasn't on my list of goals, it has been in the back of my mind that I'd like to do one if it would fit.
The Denver Rock n Roll Half is October 9th so it actually fits perfectly! Summer gives me more time to train (training is so time consuming!) with longer days and better weather. Also, October shouldn't be too hot and it's (generally) too early for snow. Perfect.
I'm excited to be doing this particular half. I have decided in 2011 I will make an effort to stretch myself. To do things outside of my comfort zone. I have spent too many years living firmly planted inside my comfort zone, it's very limiting. A big, crazy marathon in Denver is SO outside of my comfort zone. I am not big on crowds and generally choose nice, small, quiet races. But this one sounds like fun, so outside of my comfort zone I go!
I'm excited. I'm looking forward to it. I'm already planning my training schedule!
How about you...any race plans you're excited about for 2011? Do you prefer small or big races?
