My birthday isn’t for another 6 months, but it falls on 1 of 2 prime racing days…a Sunday.
Last year my birthday was Friday the 13th, so next year it skips a day and will fall on a Sunday. After this, I will have to wait a really long time before I will be able to get the chance to run a race on my actual birthday; January 13.
I had the opportunity, as well as the other NYC HTC girls to meet up with Mason, the CEO of Nuun back in June and ever since he told me about the fast 3M Half Marathon course in Austin, TX (that happens to be on my birthday), I can’t stop thinking about it.
I definitely want to run this race one day, but if I don’t get the chance to do it in 2013, then I am still left with the desire to run a race on my birthday!
There are a few races going on that day, but unfortunately I will have to travel for all of them, which makes sense because it will be the middle of winter in the Northeast.
Here are some of the possible races happening on January 13, 2013:
3M Half Marathon - Austin, TX
13.1 Series – Los Angeles, CA
Chevron Houston Marathon & Half – Houston, TX
Walt Disney World Marathon – Florida
While I would obviously LOVE to find a race, travel, and possibly PR on my birthday, I know it’s possible that it may not happen due to lack of funds. We’ll see though, it’s a fun thought and I am definitely going to try hard to make it happen.
Have you ever ran a race on your birthday? Which one did you do?
