My 2017 race calendar is starting to take form. I had this idea about doing all of the half-marathons in Vancouver, but there are so many of them, and the Fall Classic is in November, which just barely meets its title criterion of being in the fall.
I’ll start with a return to the course where I currently hold my half-marathon PR: Vancouver First Half. I was a few pounds lighter (read: faster) in 2011, so I’m not expecting another PR. But hey, I’ve 13 weeks to get into race-ready condition. Who knows?
I’ll finish the season with something I’ve never tried before: two races in one weekend: 10km on October 21, and 21.1km on the 22nd. I don’t really know what strategies to employ here, but I have a few months to figure that out!
Between those two, I’m not really sure. I’m thinking of the BMO Half, or possibly the BMO Marathon as a relay. Maybe Scotiabank in June. Seawheeze if the Online Registration Gods are in my favour.
