At the start of 2018, I made a decision to try to run 30 races in the year to celebrate turning 30. I thought it would be quite easy to complete, clearly I thought I raced more frequently than I actually do. Read below to see if I achieved it…
Tokyo Friendship 4K
Rough Runner 10K – probably the worst organised race I have ever been to!
Paris Friendship 5K
Malawi half Marathon – my first ever DNF, had to drop down from the full marathon to the half.
Sommertime Series 5K just outside Orlando (I matched my 5K PB time, which I was pleased with although wish I’d known I was so close, surely there was one more second in the tank?!)
After pulling out of the Big Cottonwood Marathon in September, I forgot to sign up to any other races!
NONE!! Watched the NYC marathon – does that count?!
I won a race! I can’t believe that I managed to win the Central Park Holiday 4 miler – OK yes it was a very small local race, but I’m not letting that small bit of info ruin it!
Total races for 2018: 25!
I’m missing five races for my 30 in 30, so am planning on ensuring I complete them before I turn 30;
I’ve already signed up for Windsor Half Marathon, London Winter Run, Phoenix Marathon, LA marathon, Cherry Blossom 10 miler, London Marathon (pacing) and Edinburgh Half Marathon!
What races do you have you signed up for so far in 2019?
