It’s hard to believe that 2011 is coming to a close and we’re already registering for 2012 races. Pretty soon the team at Carolina Runner (that’s me, the two dogs – Sasha and Gidget – that are wrestling as I write this, and our cat Chloe who is snoozing on the bed) will archive the 2011 Race Docket and start working earnestly on 2012.
There are still good racing options in the region for the balance of December. This afternoon is the Fletcher Reindeer Run. Next weekend (December 10th) there’s the Santa Hustle Half Marathon near Gatlinburg and a Black Jack 5k. The weekend after that (December 17th) there is another Black Jack 5k.
Looking forward to January and February 2012, I’m booked for the Tsali Frosty Foot 8k on the first weekend in January. I’m also planning on doing the Hot Chocolate 10k, the Black Mountain Valentine 5k and the Fletcher Frostbite 10k.
Information about 2012 races is still shaping up. Often the specific details and updated web pages begin to materialize early in the year, so if details are sketchy for some of these races at this point, rest assured that more complete information will be available soon.
