Run Around the Square 5k
This is one of my favorite local races. I ran it last year with Dan, so I'm excited to see how I can do on my own this year! I love the course- it starts on streets and ends on trails. It's a hilly race, but ends with a huge downhill! Plus, there's always great local beer at the finish. What more could you want?
Towpath Half Marathon
I also ran this race last year, and it was my first time breaking two hours in a half! I was originally planning on running the full marathon this year, but I don't feel mentally or physically ready. I have a good base right now, so I feel confident that I can have another great race this year and hopefully get another PR. Next year I'll focus on training for a full marathon!

More Cross TrainingWhile I was training for Seawheeze, I did yoga every week. I think this really helped me (I managed to stay injury free the entire training cycle!) and I want to keep it up. I also want to try more classes at my gym, so my goal is to try out one new class a month, and cross train at least twice a week. Now that the weather is turning gorgeous, I also want to start biking more!
