2016 will start off quick with a handful of races crammed into a short amount of time. 2 Marathons in January & 2 marathons in February, plus a couple shorter races thrown in. The Mississippi Blues Marathon was my first marathon in 2012 and this will be my first time to get back to the full event. (I ran the half in 2013 & 2014). The following weekend I’ll by in Baton Rouge for the 3rd year, but this time I’m running the 5k & full marathon with the Marathon Maniac Pace Team. (Again, I had run half marathon here in 2013 & 2015)
In February, Brooklyn & I are heading to California for Valentine’s Day Weekend. We’ll be watching the U.S. Olympic Trials on Saturday then running the Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday. This will be my first time running LA (2nd marathon in California) and will be Brooklyn’s 3rd consecutive LA Marathon.
2 weeks later we’ll be in New Orleans for the Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Marathon. This is a favorite run of mine and I’m looking forward to a 3rd marathon finish at RnRNOLA (2012 & 2015).
In March, I’m planning a spring break WDW getaway and will be returning to New Orleans for the Crescent City Classic 10k. This was a great race last year and I requalified for 2016. That race is on March 26 and on the 28 I take a 11 week racing hiatus. I’ll be in Virginia Beach at the Army School of Music until early June.
