Summer [Racing] Plans
As summer draws closer for me (I know most people are already done for the semester), I can’t help but think of my exciting plans and goals. I mean…who knows, this could be my last summer at home!
I don’t talk about schooling much, but if you followed my blog a year ago you know I switched majors (math and education to community health). It was the best choice of my life-though switching majors your SENIOR year of college isn’t optimal.
That being said, I’ll be done with all my undergraduate courses and will be interning (something required of my health major) next fall in downstate NY. Well-downstate forme-central NY in Syracuse. I also have no idea where life will take me after December.
So this could be my last Summer at home.
I want to enjoy it all. I don’t really have too many plans but living the dream. I’ll be working at The Cav (you know…my pool that has a barbed wire around it…has it been a year since I blogged about that? 😉
I’ll be racing the first part of the summer…simmering down through August.
I wrote out a brief racing schedule and traveling schedule because that’s all I know so far about this summer. I’m pretty casual so I tend to make last minute plans (I know…not my most quality feature).
But at least for my sake I can refer back to this. It’s not optimal for me to think that I’ll be running *fast* races in 100 degree weather, but races are fun and I love meeting and hanging out with people regardless if I have a fast race or not.
And that is why I race a lot. (mostly because it’s the only time I see my friends…as dad says)
May 26: Elizabeth River 10k VA
June 2nd: ZOOMA Women’s Half Marathon (this will be my last half for at least 6 months?!)
June 9th Local 5k VA Beach
June 16th Traveling to Syracuse for a wedding!
June 24th Jack King 1 Mile Open Water Swim VA Beach, VA
July 4th Mount Trashmore 5k
July 12th– My 22nd Birthday (let’s hope I don’t celebrate like my 21st..ie stress fracture!)
July 15- Allen Stone Run-Swim-Run. I won 2 years ago, got my stress fracture last year…if I want to do anything it’s dominate this race.
July 31st Memorial Scholarship 5k
August 4th: Beach 2 Mile Open Water Swim CT
August 11th Mud Run 8k
August 19th: Internship time! Wahh-summer over already? 😉
There will be, I’m sure, changes to this, and I don’t really know what to expect but I love seeing all my friends at races. LOLZ!
Question for you: What are your racing plans this summer?
