I mentioned recently that I've been signing up for races like CRAZY! Part of that is due to the 14 in 2014 challenge, where I've committed to running 14 races in 2014. You could choose 14 races of a specific distance, but I went for a variety of distances with my races. It's more fun that way!
Also, living in Florida, it's tough to find races after the end of April. It gets too hot, and there aren't many organized races nearby for me to run. So, I feel like I've had to sign up for a ton of races (particularly half marathons) way far in advance so that they don't fill up!
Here's what my race calendar looks like (so far) for this year:
-Houligan's sAint Patty's Day Sandpiper 5k-March 23-The St. Patty's Day 5k I ran last year is not happening this year, so I found another one to sign up for. This one is put on by the Daytona Beach Track Club, and I look forward to running it!

-Another local 5k ON St. Patrick's Day (I better hurry up and decide!)
-A local Easter Run 4-miler (haven't done that distance since July!)
-A Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon (potentially Seattle or maybe Virginia Beach again)
-Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5K (the morning of the Wine and Dine Half)
These races I've signed up for will put my 14 in 2014 total up to 9 (that includes the Daytona Half and Disney Princess Half I've already completed). I'll have a few more races to fit in, but I think I'll be able to do it (especially if I register for the races I'm considering)!
Question for you: What are YOU running this year? Give me some ideas to help me finish out my 14 races :)
