The pleasures of planning

May 15, 2013

The Runner’s World events listing website is my new swag. (Saying ‘swag’ is also totes my new swag, yah.)
What started off as a very race-free nine months or so is rapidly filling up with comeback events. The roll-call of races so far is:

  • First Forest Five on 1 June
  • Southend Half-marathon on 9 June
  • Second Forest Five on 6 July
  • Third Forest Five on 3 August
  • Burnham Beeches Half-marathon on 18 August
  • And there will be more to add to the roster over the coming weeks. I’m keeping an eye out for 10k races and half-marathons mostly, and would kind of like to squeeze in another race in July. Perhaps a return to the Oxford Half could be on the cards for October as a target race…
    Planning races is exciting and with a half-marathon just three weeks away, I’m really looking forward to taking some longer runs. (I’ve even planned a couple of routes to see if I can find some clumps of wild garlic.) If only people would stop having celebrations the day before races…
