Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

Finally a Schedule! (At least a start to one ...)

It only took about 2 months, but I finally felt motivated to create a schedule and a plan for 2013.  I am going to try to stay local (or close by) this yearWorking full-time plus some has really cramped my racing lifestyle!  It's so much harder to get away for a weekend now. Plus, there are lots of great races in the Reno-Tahoe-Sac area I also want to do some shorter races for a while.  I love high mileage, but long, slow runs tend to make me a long, slow runner I need to add some strength to my endurance.  So, I'm starting off with the Reno 5000 half marathon and will most likely do this whole series (there are 3 races in all -- April, June & September).  Then I will sprinkle in some 5 & 10Ks here and there I have never run the Mom's on the Run Mother's Day 5K, so that's on my list I will also keep some old favorites on my schedule.  I got together another speedy team for the DeCelle Relay in June And, I love, love, love the 4th of July 10K in Kings Beach!  Big Blue Adventure puts on lots of awesome races, so I might have to take a closer look at their schedule and add a few more to mine.  Then there is Bizz Johnson in October, and of course, the Turkey Trot in November -- 2 more favorites Well, it's not written in stoneBut, at least it's a start.

April - Reno 5000 Half
May - Mom's on the Run 5K
June - DeCelle Relay & Reno 5000 Half
July - Kings Beach 10K
August -
September - Reno 5000 Half
October - Bizz Johnson 50K
November - Turkey Trot 10K
December -

There are some blanks that need to be filled in.  Any ideas?!?
