It’s been said that I can be a little obsessive. I think there’s a body of evidence to support that view, and I’d be pretty silly to try to refute it. 🙂
I’ve spent some time over the last few months looking for medal-bearing 5k races to fill out my running calendar for this year. I’d already registered for a few races here and there, generally some of the ones I ran last year. However, I wanted to find some other races this year, maybe even in different places.
So over the weekend, I signed up for two fun-sounding races.
The first is the Pi Day 5K in Columbus OH. This one takes place on March 14th, and the race begins at 9:26:53 AM … 3.141592653. Get it? Add to that a pretty cool medal, and I’m in! I’ve never been to Columbus, so it’ll be interesting to see what’s there.
The other race is in December, and I simply had to sign up for this one. For the third year, Cleveland OH is hosting the Christmas Story Run 5K. The cool thing about this one is the leg lamp themed medal. And, of course, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is there, so I’ll definitely be spending some extra time wandering around there.
The last race I’m watching for is on/around October 21. You see, Marty McFly visited the future on October 21, 2015, and I’ve gotta figure someone will have a race to commemorate that!
