I’m doing the 13 races in 2013 Challenge. It’s a really nice thing some bloggers are taking the time to do (for free!). I’ll have to add in links and pictures later, because I am on my break at work and my computer here is so slow (and from 2003) that it won’t load a picture or let me add a link. Don’t even get me started on what a computer at this speed does for work effciency…that’s a whole different topic.
Anyhow, I am hoping the challenge lets me connect with some other running bloggers. The miles aren’t really a challenge, it’s paying for 13 races. That challenge will be taken care of with some virtual races the hosts of the challenge will offer for free (like I said, these are really nice people to do all this). I already had 4-5 races planned for 2013 anyways, so I figured filling in the gaps with the virtual races should make it pretty doable. You can pick all of one distance or do a variety…which is what I will do . I would LOVE to do 13 marathons, but I would have to travel. A lot. And that won’t be happening. So virtual races it is.
This public announcement is also incentive for me to follow through. I’m not so good on that. I have a lot of ideas and fantasy plans that don’t materialize. If you recall I was supposed to be running a marathon in every state right about now. See what I mean? Many of my plans don’t happen. This one seems doable. Wish me luck…and join me when I am on a computer fast enough to paste in the images for the challenge and put in some links. TGIF.
