3 Things Thursday: Race Announcements

1. What does champagne + fine stemware + New York + fab friends equal?

Answer: <strike>the party of the year</strike> my fall marathon!!

I am officially registered for the Wineglass Marathon in Corning, NY. It is rumored to be flat, FAST and awesome. Plus you get champagne at the finish. Which in my book closely rivals a finishers pint glass as the best race amenity EVER.

As an added bonus, this awesome chick (and her husband), my madre and my running friend from DC are all also toeing the start line on October 3rd. (26.2 mile partttyyy!) Anyone else out there racing this? (Or have raced before? I'd love to hear your stories!)

2. I am bailing on my August half ironman due to the above race announcement. I have been training my ass off for my fall marathon and I have some big goals (TBA soon) that I want to achieve at the race. I completely backed off my one marathon a month pace after PRing at Boston and I'm ready to smash my PR out of the water. I don't want a half ironman 6 weeks out from race day to screw anything up. I will have the opportunity in November to crush my half iron PR and I can wait until then. The next two months are about M Day.

3. Instead of racing the half IM, I am going to race a half marathon next weekend. After hitting a 1:36 at VCM, I know I am capable of qualifying for an entry to the 2011 NYC Marathon. Obviously I want to do this. So next weekend, I am going to attempt to go sub 1:37 and get that slot for next November. The race of choice? 13.1 miles in Tacoma, WA.  Anyone out there raced this course before? I'd love some intel.

Have you ever bailed on a "B" (or C or D) race so you can just KILL IT at your A race?

I still have a really, really awesome race announcement to make. Stay tuned…

  1. TMB @ RACING WITH BABES

    Fun stuff. I definitely want to run Wineglass one day. My hubby went to Cornell and I love upstate NY. Good luck qualifying. I know you'll do awesome!

  2. So exciting. I was suppose to run wineglass but I got injured so I just cheered on a friend. There is one really big hill near mile 8 believe. You do get a little bottle of Champagne when you get your race number and the corning glass museum makes your medal :)
    http://highheelrunner.blogspot.com/2009/10/think-of-wine.html My recap of the race

  3. Amanda - RunToTheFinish

    i have heard of this race and it sounds WAY FUN!! I definitely race less because I usually have goals that I want to hit

  4. that race sounds awesome, I just looked and saw no half for me… :( Good luck, you will smash your PR and I'm glad your backing off the Ironman to make sure you do! Make sure you get some water in you before you suck down too much of the bubbly at the end! ;)

  5. Good luck on your race next weekend!

  6. Kristina @goodnweird.com

    can't wait for Wineglass! I've got a tempo run on books for tonight and now have a renewed sense of purpose after our chatty chat yesterday.

  7. I'm from Tacoma! Yay! You'll be running about 4 blocks from my grandpa's house, and literally next to my pre-school. :)

    The course will be HILLY. Gig Harbor > Bridge > Mile 6 are going to be the worst. Mile 4 is going to be ridiculous. Miles 6-9 will be relatively flat. 9-11 will have a bit of an incline. 11-13 will be flat/downhill.

    I'm so sad that I'll be in California while you are here. :(

    I can provide more detailed info if you want – just shoot me an email. chelsea.c at gmail dot com :)

  8. AAAAHHHHH!!!! You are killing us with this BIG announcement! haha ;)

    Its gonna be a good time ;)

  9. I'll be at Wineglass in October…it's my first marathon!

  10. Whoo hoo! A fall marathon is a good idea – especially since you have another half IM to compete in later! Can't wait to hear you goals!
    And good luck on crushing your half time – I know you have it in you ;)

  11. Wait so you've got even more exciting news to share?!?! You are one busy, motivated girl! Best of luck on all!

  12. onelittletrigirl

  109. There will be no viable OC or DC coordinator next year. No coach with any self respect would ever come into a situation like this. The DC would have to merely be a puppet for Lovies horrible scheme and the OC has to work under a lame duck regime and might have only one real year here. Who would do that? No one good.

  110. ??? ??? ???? ?????? ?? ??? ????? ??? ????? ??????. ???? ?? ????? ????? ????? ??????? ?????.

  111. P.S. A good example of OM not being real; you believe that in order for one to value life, there must be some objective value that is inherent to life, for us to hold in the first place. This is not true; something does not have to be valuable in an objective sense in order for us to value it; it is our state of being that gives this object value; because value is subjective by its nature. To claim that life is inherently valuable in an objective sense is a bit like saying Bad Religion is a preferable band, in an objective sense (although quite a bit more serious). Something cannot be valuable in and of itself; it only has what value we ascribe to it.

  132. Maintain the excellent job mate. This web blog publish shows how well you comprehend and know this subject.

  133. Conventions are built around themes a common element. Computer conventions dont typically invite rodeo clowns, model railroad conventions wouldnt invite chess champions, and a pirate convention shouldnt feature an enormous guest list of actors and actresses that have nothing to do with the subject at hand.
