TotR: Fall Race Plans

Fall gets a pretty late start in Florida, typically giving us a tease or two during October and then settling in for good in November.  So our fall race season really doesn’t get busy until then.  My next race is one of my favorites, the Wine & Dine Half Marathon!  I’m really excited about it and actually just finished my costume for it!  I’m a little worried about it because after my six mile run Saturday and a couple of hours of walking around a living history park (in flip flops…yes that was a poor choice) my left foot suddenly hurts…a lot!  I feel like the universe is conspiring against my Wine & Dine training.  But it will all be worth it when I get to see this again!

At the very end of November is my second favorite race so far, the Space Coast Half Marathon.  Last year the weather was perfect, overcast and cool.  Most of the run is along the water which is gorgeous.  My half marathon PR was earned at that race (and my only sub 2:30 half marathon so far!).  I’m planning a Dr. Who themed costume again for this race but haven’t even gotten started yet!

I’ve then got the WDW 10k in January, Gasparilla in February and the Asheville Half in March.  If you’re interested in joining me at the Asheville Half (or Full!) in March, send me an e-mail or message me on Facebook for a discount code!

Sorry for the late Tuesdays on the Run post, I’ve got the same old excuse I’ve been using for a few weeks now, 13 hour days at work!  Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the posts from my hosts Patty from My No-Guilt Life, and Erika from MCM Mama Runs and all the other linked posts!   What races are on your schedule this fall?

    • I can’t wait to design and make it!! You are going to do so awesome on your race! I can’t wait to read about it! Best of luck!

    • Thanks! It’s still giving me trouble but I think I’m going to run on it this weekend and see what happens!

  1. You know Wine & Dine is the single Disney race about which I have heard exclusively good things. I’m starting to wonder if that’s not the race to look at?

    Your race calendar is exciting and ambitious – and I wish you absolutely every success. 😎

    • It is my very favorite race so far. The lights are truly magical and the runners seem relaxed but focused. The after party is simply so much fun! Definitely go for it next year!

    • Well, I’m really excited about Wine & Dine but life and work have gotten in the way of my training (and now my foot is somehow injured!) so I may be walking it!

  2. I will be running Wine and Dine in November. I wanted to run Space Coast, but it filled before I could register. There is always next year I guess. I also want to run Gasparilla, but I haven’t completely convinced my husband to make the trip from Jax.

    • Space Coast is filling up so quickly because of the Big Bang medal series thing. If you want to run it next year, get in as soon as it opens! I’ve wanted to run Gasparilla for years and kept skipping for Princess but I’m ready to give being a pirate a try instead this year! I’m doing the 8k/15k challenge.

      • I ran Princess this year, but I know the pirate theme is more me than princess. If I don’t make it for 2015, I will for 2016. I was looking into doing one of the challenges. I also want to run in Key West.
