Doing the 13.1 Series. Oh My!

Apparently I can't get enough running! A few days ago I decided to do the entire 13.1 Series. How and why did I decide to take on such a task, you ask? It all started when I signed up for the Susan G. Komen 5k.
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k. My thought process goes as such:
1)I saw that Susan G. Komen also has a marathon and half marathon component. My first step in my grand decision was deciding that I was going to run half marathons and commit to raising $250 for the organization.
2) “Well, it'll be quite some time before I can run another half in decent weather. I'm going to run somewhere warm- like L.A.!” I looked up races for the months of November through March and found the inaugural 13.1 Los Angeles Marathon on January 10. Done.
3) “Hm. Why not just do the whole 13.1 series?”
And so, I am now going to complete the series. My goal is to do the eight races in about two and a half years.
The series takes place in Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Miami Beach, New York, Chicago, Boston, and Minneapolis.
Little did I know that when I started with WalkJogRun almost a year ago that I'd be running a bunch of half marathons… I like it!
Of course I'll blog about all of these, so stay tuned!
