A plan is coming together…

It would seem next years racing schedule is starting to take shape. Well, at least the first part of the year.

Two weeks ago I registered for the Benfleet 15, a 15mile trail race through the mud and snow of Kent, in the middle of January. I’m doing it as a ‘warm up’ for Ragnar Relay Florida, though it’ll be anything but warm!

I also received news last week that I was lucky enough to get a London Marathon charity place through my work, raising money for Shelter, one of our nominated charities. I’ve wanted to run London for years, but never got through the ballot, so I’m pretty stoked to have been given a charity place. It’s a lot of money to raise but its for a very good cause so I’m sure I’ll get there.

That leaves me with Benfleet 15, Ragnar Relay Florida and London Marathon from January to April. It’s no “John ‘Hannibal’ Smith” moment yet, but the plan is coming together. It also leaves me feeling a little like this:


Now I need to find a race for March, and really start looking into summer and fall races. And another ultra. Gulp…

Anyone else still putting their schedule together?

Happy running everyone!

  1. Jesse and I are putting together our race schedule too! Our March race (Way too Cool 50K) is a lottery, so a bunch of other things hinge on that. The London Marathon is definitely on the bucket list!
