April already, huh?

So here's my plan for the year.  Rather than running a marathon in the fall (given my stupid achilles is still a problem), I'm running a series of shorter races this year. 13 races in 2013 to raise money for pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.  Please help if you're able:  http://mskcc.convio.net/goto/Elizabeth13in2013

Bold means I'm registered and confirmed.  The last one (NYRR Ted Corbitt 15k), registration should open in August if I remember correctly.  And I may need to find a substitute for the Clarence DeMar in July.

February:   3Feb2013 NYRR Gridiron Classic 4M,   NYC - DONE!
March: 17Mar2013 NYC Half, NYC - DONE!
May:  11May2013  Shoreham Apple Blossom Derby 5k
June:   8June2013  Colchester Causeway 15k
June:  22June2013  Shelburne 10k
July:  6july2013 GMAA Clarence DeMar 5k
July:  14July2013  Stowe 8-Miler
july:  28July2013 Essex Half Marathon
August:  24Aug2013  Richmond Round Church Women's Run 10k
September:  14Sept2013 Charlotte Half Marathon
October:  13Oct2013  GMAA Green Mountain Half
October:  20Oct2013  CHaD Half Marathon
December:  14Dec2013  NYRR Ted Corbitt 15k

Lots of race fees compared to a single big race, that's for sure!  But I'm enjoying the shorter stuff.  And no sense of dread for the long training runs that go along with a full marathon.  woohoo!
