2012 Tentative Race Schedule

I've already registered for the ones in bold; the others are just what I am considering but I will likely not run them all. I have a big gap between May and August, but it's usually too hot in Florida to race during those months so it's a good time for rebuilding base milage for marathon season. I may throw in a duathlon during that time, or maybe a 30-day running streak, but I haven't decided yet.
  1. [01.01] DeLeons Half Marathon
  2. [01.22] Ocala Marathon
  3. [02.04] Lady Track Shack 5K
  4. [02.12] 26.2 with Donna Marathon (BMC)
  5. [02.18] Run Around the Pines 5K

                  I'm hoping to make Space Coast my Marathon this year, but if predicted times are long I'll drop to the half! or Do Jacksonville. I'm still building my miles!!!!! Next time we'll meet!

                  I love your restaurant goals. I could use some goals like that also, to be honest.

                  Thanks. I think we spend way too much eating out and it's just not as healthy when I don't cook it myself so it's a win-win both for health and financial reasons.

                  Space Coast is a great race, but I think I liked the half better than the full. It just gets lonely during the second half, but I think that's typical of a lot of full marathons. I hear Jacksonville is even flatter/faster, so I want to try that one next year.
