With 2011 approaching it is time to start thinking of race plans for the upcoming year. As I have already indicated on here I am planning on running the Ottawa Marathon in May.
I would like also like to run some of the small 5 km and 10 km races around here. So far I have not decided on any other races I would like to do.
I won’t be doing any races in January because I am headed to Whistler for a week of skiing but after that I would like to get in at least a couple of races before the marathon in May. I think I will decide which ones I would like to do over the next few weeks.
As for the rest of the year, it will depend on how things go in May. If things do not go as planned I will definitely want to take a look at the out of town race schedule so I can run a fall marathon again next year. I will probably make my race plans for the rest of the year after that point whether I aim for a local half-marathon or whether I decide to travel out of town for a fall marathon.
