Last night, I welcomed February at the stroke of midnight as I hit refreshed on the Chicago Marathon site and proceeded to register for the 2011 Chicago Marathon.
Yes folks, I’m that much of a dork that I registered right at midnight.
Why? Because I could.
Seriously though, I was waiting for this day all year! All 31 days of it. Heh.
With Chicago registered, I am pretty much set with my race line for 2011. I still have one more to register, but I think I’ll wait to next month lest I go completely broke again.
That being said, here are my major races for 2011:
April 10, 2011 – Go! St. Louis Half Marathon
April 30, 2011 – Illinois Marathon
May 30, 2011 – Madison, WI Half Marathon
August 14, 2011 – Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago Half Marathon
October 9, 2011 – Chicago Marathon
The spring is very heavy, but I think I can pull it off. The RnR Chicago is still up in the air because it will depend on if I will be in Europe/Africa or not yet. Hence why my summer/fall schedule is a lot lighter than previous years.
Training as already begun and I’m stoked for this year.
