Are you sad that your Christmas race is over?
Don’t be sad. Sign up for another race!
Here are two options to get your 2016 race calendar started:
My Better Half Marathon
Seattle friends should check out the My Better Half Marathon on Valentines Day! I think I’ve got my friend Mel talked into running it with me. There are four fun categories: Bromance (two guy friends), Besties (two girl friends), Lovers (romantically involved) and Lonely Hearts. There is also a 5K and a 10K.
Dress up with your running partner–it’s going to be a fun race out at Seward Park!

The shirts are amazing half-zips and have thumbholes, which I love.
Of course, you also get a medal and other goodies. And I heard there will be a tunnel of love on the course!
FitFam Challenge Virtual Run & Ride
Another fun option would be a virtual race like the FitFam Challenge (Jan. 15-18) Virtual Run & Ride. You get gender-specific shirts, a race medal and even a real race bib–so you get everything you would get with an organized race, except the crazy crowds, wild parking and having to get up at the crack of dawn!
Plus you get to help support a great cause. FitFam will give $1 for every registration, plus any additional donations to KaBOOM!, a national non-profit dedicated to bringing balanced and active play into the daily lives of all kids, particularly those growing up in poverty in America.
There are a bunch of race options:
- 1 Mile Run / Walk
- 5K Run / Walk
- 10K Run / Walk
- Half Marathon Run / Walk
- 10 Mile Bike Ride
- 25 Mile Bike RIde
You could literally do these distances anywhere with anyone. I especially think it would help make some of those long distance training runs a little more interesting. I mean, if you gotta run 13.1 miles, you might as well get a shirt and a medal–plus help a charity.
