2015 Race Plans (Tuesdays on the Run)

13 Jan

On Tuesdays I am joining a link up with MCM Mamma Runs, Run the Great Wide Somewhere and My No Guilt Life. You can find out more about the link up here.

This weeks topic: 2015 Race Plans!

I’ve never been one to majorly plan out my races for the year all at once. I tend to sign up for a few and then do some research, and then sign up for a few more as I feel like it. So here’s what my race calendar looks like right now, but I’m sure it will change as things get more solidified.

January & February

  • Nothing…. Pennsylvania and the east is cold this time of year!


  • My husband and I go to Florida every year so I always look for a 5k or 10k that I can run one morning while we are there.  So I may end up running something, or I may not.
  • I may also run a local 5k towards the end of March or beginning of April.


  • Hershey 10k (4/11) – Maybe. I have a hotel room booked but am still on the fence about doing the actual race and will probably wait until February to register.  I do really enjoy this race though.
  • Asbury Park Half Marathon (4/18) – This will be my first New Jersey race!


  • Pittsburgh Half Marathon (5/3) – I love this race, so I always sign up when registration first opens! This will be my fourth year running it. 🙂 Race recaps: 2012, 2013, 2014.

June, July, August, September, October

  • Yet to be scheduled, but there will probably be a 5k in July and there is always potential for a Color Run or Mud Run during the summer months.
  • In September or October it would be nice to do a half marathon or two.


  • Rock n’ Roll Savannah Half Marathon (11/7) & Rock n’ Roll Savannah 5k (11/8) – I am so excited to travel to Savannah, GA for this race! My dad and I try to do a destination race every year and for 2015 this is what we picked! I’m also excited about a Half/5k Double weekend, and checking another state off the list!
  • I’ll probably run a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning – I love getting in a run before a day of relaxation and food!


  • I always end up running a local New Years Eve 5k so there is a high chance this will happen again.

So that’s my year in racing, so far!

    Sounds like a solid race schedule so far! I love in PA too, so I know how you feel about the cold!! That’s nice that you and your dad do a destination race together each year…I need to start doing that!

      Totally recommend one “destination” race a year – it can be really affordable that way. 🙂

    I challenge anyone not to have a good time with the ‘Burgh’s half. Having said that, though, I feel like I’m getting into a racing rut and am looking for another springtime half in the region (I’m coming out of Harrisburg). Any thoughts? Anyone? Anyone?

    • Becca January 13, 2015 at 10:31 am #

      I totally agree – spring time halfs in this area are tough to come by! I went into Ohio and did the Cleveland Half a few years ago – it’s a really great race! There is also Rock n Roll USA in DC in March – I’ve never done it but heard good things. Other than that I am not aware of much so if you find some out definitely let me know!

    I’ve been missing our local Turkey Trot for the last few years because we’ve been doing Walt Disney World all Thanksgiving week. I think this year I need to do some research and find a Turkey Trot in Orlando! Thanks for sharing your schedule and for linking up with us today!

    So jealous you might do the Hershey 10k! I did it the past two years and it’s one of my favorites! I am so sad I can’t run it this year. It sounds like you have a good schedule lined up and I’m excited to read the race recaps!

    You have a full schedule, I am jealous!!
