Howdy! So I’m pretty far behind here in blogging land!
2012 has found me busy, as you may or may not know I’m also pretty into running. Today will be a mix of races & apps!
I’ve been carefully putting together my race calender and here is quick look at the highlights:
Sunday May 6th: The Mountain Goat, Syracuse, NY
Super hilly, lots of fun, Beer at the finish!
Sunday July 8th: The Utica, NY Boilermaker (you may remember when I was locked out of registering last year, NOT this year!)
They take the best over heads shots, where I usually look like a total fool!
Saturday August 11th: The Warrior Dash, New York
My first time, I AM A WARRIOR!
I’m hoping VERY soon to be adding some out-of-state races, it’s been far too long.
Here are a couple of my MUST have iPhone apps that help me keep track of my running and training. I encourage you to check them out:
I sing this apps’ praises often as I don’t know how I lived without it. It keeps track of routes, miles, calories burned and even lets you leave a note for yourself about how it went!
If you run/walk/bike anything I suggest the download!
I like to run but like everyone I am sometimes super lazy about it, so when I need a kick in the pants I use my run 10K app. A voice ( of your choosing) will coax you through your run. I have a lady who sounds like skinny bitch, it’s all the motivation I need to power through a long run! Another great part is you can listen to your own music while running. I have had apps in the past that didn’t allow for that. I believe this is a paid app but for $2.99 I’ll take it.
What Races are you looking forward too in 2012? Any awesome races coming up I should try out?
