New challenge: 13 in 2013!!!!

I think I’ve managed to lose it but just a little bit.  However, when I saw this opportunity for a new challenge – I couldn’t pass it up!!  The nice thing about being a Sweat Pink Ambassador is the community of other fitness loving gals you get to interact with.  My Twitter feed is constantly abuzz with helpful exercise tips, recipes and new things to try.  So, when I saw the 13 in 2013 challenge I was intrigued!

The idea is to participate in 13 races (either of the same or varying distances) in 2013.  Looking at my racing schedule already, I’m slated for 7 different events between now and July… why not add 6 more!  I decided not to do the half marathon challenge, but rather will do the “variety” challenge, which only requires me to participate in 13 total running events this year.


So, I’m in!  I’ve already listed my confirmed races on the right side bar, but here is what my 2013 is looking like – as well as some I’ve got my eyes on to get up to Lucky #13 (marked with an *).  Stay tuned…
