13 in 13
Today I signed up for a challenge to do 13 races in 2013. I love the prospect of a new adventure, and being accountable with a group always makes thing a little more enjoyable. There will be prize giveaways throughout the year, and there's even a FB page for group motivation and encouragement.
Registration for the "event" closes tomorrow, so if you're interested in joining, head over to 13 in 13 and sign up. You have the option of choosing from a few options: 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 or Variety (in which you can do a variety of distances over the course of the year). Since I have everything from halfs to a 100K planned, I signed up for the variety option.
So far I don't have 13 races on the calendar, but it shouldn't be a problem to get in that many. With the option of doing any distance, it will be easy to throw in a shorter race. Plus, the organizers are doing 6 virtual runs throughout the year to help everyone achieve their goals.
Join me if you'd like. It should be lots of fun!! :)
