Marathons are such a big part of me that I can’t imagine going through life without running one or two in a new city every year. It’s what keeps me motivated to train even through the hot or tough days; it’s what gets me excited for the months ahead; and, last but not the least, it’s what makes me absolutely happy… next to my kids, of course.
For this year, I’ve finally set my race calendar. Just thinking about it (especially Florence…aaah!) makes me giddy like a school girl. Here’s my race calendar for 2017 (excluding local races I’ll run for training):

How about you? Where will you be running this year?
