Where I’m Going

Running post of upcoming races (As of 2013 when I shut down the running blog)

Conquer the Bridge

featured-upcoming-cb


Why?

As I stated in the previous post about the race, I LOVE bridges and this run will let me cross Los Angeles off my “Run Across a Bridge in Favorite Cities” list. Others on the list are/were:


Expectations

Since it is roughly a 5 mile race, I don’t have any earlier times to beat. During my last long run (7/14) I ran the first five miles in 49 mins. So let’s say 45 for the race?


Training Schedule

Just got back from a long break my stamina is a bit of a joke. So I will try to hit the following times before then.
7/22 – 50 mins – NO, roughly 1hrs 3mins but it was a trail run. Valid excuse right? hah
7/29 – 49:00 – YES! 46 mins and 54 seconds!
8/5 – 48:00 – NO, 55 mins 30 seconds. Another trail run.
8/12 – 47:00
8/19 – 46:00
8/26 – Sub 45
9/2 – RACE!

Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles: Half-Marathon

featured-upcoming-rrla


Why?

I really love the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series and I had a great time at the RnR LA Mini-Marathon last year. This year I will once again raise money for Team ASPCA but I’ve upped the ante. My goal is to raise $950 for this wonderful organization AND I’m doing the Half-Marathon!

Like last year, I will offer incentives for donations. Since the goal is bigger I’m going to be pretty creative. For my first goal I want to raise $250 by July 27th. If I meet that goal I will run the entire race in a full costume picked by the highest bidder! Now I do have some restrictions so if you are interested please visit my fund-raising site for more details.


Expectations

Hoping to raise $950 and finish the race in a costume! Now that I have four half-marathons under my belt, I’m confident I will finish but the bigger question is if I can raise the money. I’ll have to set a schedule for both running and fund-raising.


Fund-Raising Schedule

7/27 – $250!
8/20 – $500
9/1 – $600
9/15 – $700
9/29 – $800
10/6 – $850
10/13 – $950!
10/20 – $1150! I would qualify for the next level!
