More Tales of Running: The Season Line Up

Contrary to the weather here in New England, spring is upon us and that means stepping up my running game.  I've been doing better in the last two weeks with the running than when I did my 2 month check in but if I'm going to achieve my goal for a marathon this year, it's time to get ready and get running a lot more.  Last year, I signed up for a bunch of runs and that did a lot to help me build up to a half marathon, a 25K, and a 30K.  With the extra time afforded to me on this snow day, I took the time to sign up for a series of runs throughout the spring, summer, and fall, culminating in a marathon in October.

Below is a list of the races that I've signed up for.  Further below, I've listed ones that I might still sign up for.  If you plan on signing up for any other them do let me know and maybe we can coordinate transportation and training.

In the course of looking at rides, I came across the 17th Annual Ultra Around the Lake in Wakefield.  I don't think this is likely to be this year, but I've got my eyes on it.  Maybe next year's goal!
