#RUNNING: My 2011 Race Calendar & Playlist

 I've finally assembled my race calendar for 2011 and registered for all races. Spanning four official half-marathons, two 10k's, and one 5k covering 68.1 time-chipped miles. Hopefully this will be my strongest running year yet. I just might break 1:45 for the half. Not to mention all the 10+ mile training runs leading up to the big races.

Special thanks go out to my new running circle who tipped me off to North Olympic Half-Marathon, my close friend Micky who's hosting me a second year in a row for the Eugene Half-Marathon, and to my long-time running buddy Tea-Leaf who registered me for the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll Half-Marathon for my 40th birthday.

And check out the 2011 Running Playlist I put together (at bottom). I use the same playlist all year, chosen for target pace and distance. This year's list has less techno, more classic rock, and includes half-dozen contemporary Led Zeppelin covers, and of course, James Bond theme songs!
