**Updated on 1/12/16-no longer running Shamrock this year
Over the weekend I finalized my 2016 race schedule and it’s looking a bit different this year than in years past: more triathlons than running races! That’s right, this is my first official triathlon season and I’m so excited about it (the past 2 years I’ve done 1 tri per year, so I wouldn’t actually call it a season). I also cut back on the total number of races so I can focus more on the training than running all the races. I may add one more 5K or 10K because I like those distances, but nothing has really jumped out at me so far.
Here is my 2016 schedule:
1/17 Maui 10K
3/13 Newport News One City Marathon Relay (running on team ortho with co-workers + entry provided by Riverside Health System with $15 donation to the Riverside Foundation)
3/20 Shamrock Half Marathon
5/7 5K By The Bay
10/29 Wicked 10K
4/2 Smithfield Sprint Triathlon
6/12 Jamestown Olympic Triathlon
7/10 REV3 Williamsburg Olympic Triathlon
8/20 Presque Isle Triathlon (Sprint distance)
9/17 Outer Banks Olympic Triathlon
12/3 Key West Olympic Triathlon
Is anyone else running any of these races? If so, I hope to see you there!
