Marathon Schedule

Finally I am putting down to paper my marathon race list for this season. Some of my favorite races are Hurricane Half Marathon, HobbleCreek Half Marathon, Top of Utah Half Marathon, Top of Utah Marathon, St. George Marathon, and the Deseret News (Pioneer Days) Marathon. My normal season would have included all of those races. This year I already missed the Hurrican Half (it used to be a late summer race and now is in the Spring). I also find it unlikely to do the Deseret News Marathon.

That leaves me with TOU Half, TOU, St George, and Hobblecreek from my favorites list.

The Dates for these races are:

HobbleCreek - Aug. 21, 2010

TOU Half – Aug. 28, 2010

TOU – Sep. 18, 2010

St. George – Oct. 2, 2010 (subject to lottery).

One more race that I would like to do is the Tucson Marathon.  It is Dec. 12, 2010.  I would like to do this one, but may have to find a Marathon either further out in the year or one closer to home (like the LV Marathon).

I am not sure about the week separation for HobbleCreek and TOU/2 – especially with travel involved.  However, these are great races and I really would love to get back to doing them.

My goals are still to qualify for the Boston Marathon.  I would like to do that this year.

There is one more Marathon I haven’t done that I am considering.  They have a full and a half and it is in Mesquite Nevada.  This marathon used to be called the Tr-State Marathon due to the course.  It has been re-branded as the Mesquite Marathon.  This one will be held November 20, 2010 which works well with my schedule.

I remember the last marathon I ran in...

Oh wait.  No I don't.  They sound hot. =)

Good luck and sounds like a good season. I'm looking at a July 4 5k here, maybe a marathon at some point. I've done the San Diego marathon and the Va Beach Shamrock. I'd love to do the Pikes Peak Ascent. Maybe one day.

Thanks Steve and Seth.

I am looking forward to the season.
