2. No Sunday races. I don't usually mind skipping Church to run a half marathon or full marathon. In my conveniently warped mind God forgives me when I'm racing the longer distances. Skipping church to run a 5K, however, makes me feel like the fire and brimstone is about to come thundering down. But that's just me and my guilt! No judgement to anyone who races 5Ks on Sundays, I STG!!
3. Local - This goes without saying. Traveling more than 30 minutes to run a 5K is....it's a longer drive than it is a run. Oh wait, I know, it's ironic.
4. Have a Unique Quality - weather it be a cool medal or free pancake breakfast or run at night or get pummeled head to toe with non-toxic fluorescent colors. But I'm especially a sucker for free food.
Here are the first 3 races I'm signed up for this Spring:
I had such a phenomenal time running the LA Marathon last year. Right now the local TV station is constantly running ads on the morning news show and I'm FULL of regret for backing out of running LA in 2016. I'm going to do the 5K and hope to see some old friends from the LA Running Club.
I'm also half expecting to see the T-Birds and the Scorpians out there having their own race!
How is your 2016 Spring Racing Season shaping up? Did anyone sign up for Disney?
