13 in 2013

I'm participating in a 13 in 2013 Challenge.  I have to complete 13 races in 2013.  These races can be 5Ks, 10Ks, 15Ks, 13.1, 26.2 or trail races.  They are also including four virtual races but I think I'll make it to 13 without any virtual races.  I'm excited about planning out my races for the year...this is a first for me.  I usually just register as the events get closer, without a real plan (except my marathons...I planned those babies!).  My friend Denise has showed me the ways of registering very early to take advantage of cheaper registration fees. 

My running buddies and I even had a special lunch date to discuss our 2013 races!

Here is what I have planned so far:

  1. Disney Marathon 1/13/13 
  2. Clearwater Marathon 1/20/13
  3. Gasparilla Half Marathon 2/24/13
  4. Spring Sprint 5K 3/16/13
  5. Sarasota Half Marathon 3/17/13
  6. Oldsmar Tap House 5K 3/29/13 (MAYBE)
  7. Iron Girl Half Marathon 4/14/13
  8. Crazy Sombrero 5K 5/3/13
  9. Rap River 5K 6/8/13
  10. Westchase Women's Sprint Tri 6/?/13 (MAYBE)
  11. Lutz 4th of July 5K 7/4/13
  12. Coteeman Sprint Tri 8/10/13
  13. Tarpon Springs Sprint Tri 9/7/13
  14. Bride of Frankenfooter 5K 10/26/13
  15. Frankenfooter Half Marathon 10/27/13
  16. Space Coast Half Marathon 12/1/13 (MAYBE)
  17. Pretty Muddy 5K 12/7/13 (BIG MAYBE)

Do you plan out your races for the year?  What fun races do you have coming up?

Check out my RACES page to see completed races.


  1. Looks like a great list of races! You'll definitely be able to do 13 in 2013 if you have a list like this planned out. Congrats on already finishing two marathons- thats amazing right there.

  2. You have some great races on your schedule! I'd love to do the Westchase Woman's Tri. It has a pool swim over an open water swim :) I hope they announce a date soon!!

  3. Ooh! EXCITING! Going to check out some of those races to see if I get inspired to run more!

  4. Great lineup! LOVE LOVE LOVE the Tarpon tri. I've done it twice and will probably do it again this year. Where is the sombrero 5k?

    1. The Crazy Sombrero is in Longleaf in New Port Richey.

  5. I can't believe the number of marathons you have on your list and you've already run 2 of them! Amazing job! I have one half and one full on my list for 2013. Not worried about the half at all, it's the full that scares me! :-)
