It's sign up season!

Ok so at the start of the year I have a look at what races we are going to do this year and check to make sure the dates don't conflict, budget for them and am sure to sign up for them in time to get the 'gift' they give away for the early bird sign ups and to pay the lowest price :)

Now with my races AND my 5yrs races AND the team races hubby is doing with me, it needs to be planned out. My new goal this year is to do two Triathlons...one at the start of the summer and one at the end. The only thing I am worried about with that is that the first Tri of the season is a co-ed one and I haven't done a Tri with men before (little worried about getting pummelled in the water! ) AND I don't have a wet suit brrrrrrr! :Z

So here are the races I have set out for us so far...I attached the links in case YOU want to sign up and I'll see you out there!!! :-D

The race that kicks off the race season for our family is:

April 6- Good Friday race ( kids bunny hop 1K & I do the 5K) AND!!!!! my 3yr is signed up to do the bunny hop too!...it's his first race! OMG! OMG!!! SO exciting! :-D And we dress up with our bunny ears and tail :)

June 2 - Moon in June (this is the first race we ever did back in 2010. We will all run the 1K and then I will run the 10k after)
June 24 - Kids Triathlon (my 5yr will do this)

July 21- Warrior Dash (Hubby and I will be doing this together, it's the first time for both of us!)
July 28- THE NEXT WEEKEND!!!! 4hr RockStar Adventure race!! (this will be hubby and I as team 'VanAwesome'. Our 2nd year)

Sept 2- Woman's Triathlon (will be training through the summer with Mommy's/Babe's in Motion for this)
Sept 23 - Island Girl race (this is the race I will do my Half Marathon in)

Oct 12- Trek or Treat (this is the race that ends the race season for our family (the family does the 'Creepy Mile' with our costumes on, then I run the 5k OR 10k after) really fun night race :)

'Live in YOUR Awesome!!'
