Go Go Go

Starting this weekend I have 5 races in 9 weeks. That's almost a race every other weekend. I actually have a 2 week break in there at one point. 1 5K...1 Half Marathon...3 Marathons. Who put this schedule together? I can't imagine it would have been meeee doing something crazy like this. This is how it breaks out:

Oct 11 Pumpkin Run 5K
Oct 19 Nike Women's Marathon
Oct 26 No Race
Nov 02 Maynard Cohick Half Marathon (Maynard? Cohick? For real?)
Nov 09 No Race
Nov16 San Antonio Marathon
Nov 23 No Race
Nov 30 No Race
Dec 06 Kiawah Island Marathon (and MY BIRTHDAY!!)

The Pumpkin Run is just for fun. It's going to be a great time.
The Nike Women's Marathon is going to be the best race ever. Karen's first marathon. We're running it together.
The Maynard Cohick Half Marathon will be a nice recovery run from Nike and a nice taper for San Antonio.
The San Antonio Marathon will be a blast. I'm getting a charm of the Alamo for my marathon charm bracelet. This will be my first marathon in Texas. Not expecting any lightening time here but would like to have a halfway decent run. Not expecting much with the amount of races I'll have done though.
The Kiawah Island Marathon will be a great day. It has to be! It's on my birthday. Oh...I already mentioned that. I love my birthday.

So that's 3 marathons in 3 months.
Counting September it'll be 4 marathons in 4 months. Which is the total number I've completed the first half of the year.
So by the time I've completed my marathon in December, that will be 8 marathons in 12 months.
Not too shabby if I can say myself.


  1. And then just 10 short days into 2009 you'll have your first half followed by a full. That's just goofy!! ;)

  2. Woman, you are crazy! I have those 'no race' dates on my calendar also. I need some of your mojo....

  3. Exciting months ahead for you! Way to go Kim! Have fun with Karen on her first marathon. I would love to be along watching you two having fun during the marathon. A true memory maker for sure!

  4. You are cracking me up here! I thought I was the only nutbar...


  5. Wow, that is soooo exciting. I can't wait to read all of the race reports!

  6. You are definitely "addicted" to racing! Be careful out there.
