{race plans for 2017}

2017 is going to be a big race year for me.

I already have a full marathon (my first!), three half marathons (two are runDisney!), a 10K (strangely enough, my first!) and a 5K on the books and paid-for.

Sometimes I wonder if I’m being too ambitious… but then I laugh and tell myself I’m being silly.


I spent September 2015 through August 2016 running one organized road race per month. I ran my first half marathon in 2016. I accumulated over 300 miles of training and racing in the second half of 2016. I completed the Ultra level for the Millennium Series, which means I raced a cumulative of 40+ miles in one calendar year. If you had asked me on January 1st, 2016 whether or not I thought I’d be doing all of that running, I would’ve laughed in your face. But I did, and now here we are, and I’m already looking ahead to 2017.

I want to complete two race series this year – the Millennium Series again, and the Will Run For Beer Series. (It’s all about the finisher’s jacket!)

So here’s what I have planned with plenty of wiggle room to add more (which I inevitably will!):


  • WCRC New Years Day Hangover Classic 10K (WRFB Series)
  • Snowflake Shuffle 5K (MR Series)


  • LOCO Palooza 5K (WRFB Series)
  • Enchanted 10K (Glass Slipper Challenge)
  • Princess Half Marathon (Glass Slipper Challenge and Coast-to-Coast)


  • Fat Tuesday 5K (MR Series)
  • Shamrock Half Marathon (MR Series)
  • Shamrock Shuffle 5K (MR Series)


  • Great Bay Half Marathon (WRFB Series)


  • Tinkerbell Half Marathon (Coast-to-Coast)


  • WhatMovesYou 5K (WRFB Series)
  • Will Run For Beer 5K (WRFB Series)



  • Ragnar Reach the Beach


  • Wineglass Marathon


  • Wine & Dine 10K (Lumiere’s Two Course Challenge) (wish-list)
  • Wine & Dine Half Marathon (Lumiere’s Two Course Challenge) (wish-list)

What do you have planned for 2017? Will you be running any of these same races?
