Anyways, I have been obsessing about my race schedule for next year. I have already registered for the Chilly Half marathon on March 4, as I mentioned in my last post. The Ottawa marathon (a.k.a. Ottawa race weekend or NCM) is also on my to-do list. I checked out the website and was surprised to see that several of the hotels are already booked up...the race is 7 months away! So, I booked a hotel just in case I decide to go. Actually, I am pretty sure that I want to go...I just have to decide if I want to do the half or the full marathon. I only plan to do one full marathon next year...the training is just too intense for me to attempt a double.
So, if I list all of the races that I want to enter, we have:
That doesn't include 5 km and 10 km races that I may sign up for on a whim.
Okay, so...should I do ATB or not?? It's awfully close to the Chilly half, which I intend to race full-out (unless there's a blizzard...that would make it hard to race :P). It's 2 full months before NCM, which is a little early if I intend to do it as a training run. And, if I accidently race ATB, I could screw up my training for NCM...then again, I could just do the half at NCM and save the full for Quebec city...
Hmm, decisions, decisions!
