I had been thinking about challenging myself to run 13.1 miles thirteen times in 2013. Not official races, just the distance.
Then I heard about Jill's 13 in 2013 challenge. Thirteen races in 2013 and possibly win prizes?! Yes, please! That's way better than my idea!
I can't afford thirteen races!
Aha. That's where Laura's 5 by the 5th challenge comes in: a virtual race series where the racers run either a 5K or a 5 miler by the 5th of every month from January to June. Get this: there's a monthly drawing for prizes for that one too!
Yep, signed up for that one too!
So, I already have 6 virtual races plus two real life races scheduled. I'm already up to 8 races and the year hasn't even started yet.
I am so excited for 2013.
Are you joining in the racing fun?
