O.M.G! New J&A Race coming this fall and I cannot control my excitement!!!
Just today, they announced a new race series for the November 21-23rd weekend. This will be a very beautiful run, taking place along the historic downtown Norfolk waterfront.
Races it will feature:
– Blue Moon Harbor Lights 5k
-Harbor Lights Final Mile
-Harbor Lights Half Marathon
-Get Lit Challenge (5k and Half Marathon)

Of course, you know I’m a sucker for a challenge, and I want to do the Get Lit Challenge. However, I also know that I cannot push it, and I’ve pushed that idea out of my mind. I am considering the half though.
This is what my current race schedule for the fall looks like:
October 4-5: Crawlin Crab Shell Yeah Challenge (5k and Half Marathon)
October 25: Wicked 10k
December 6: Surfin Santa 10 Miler
I”m not sure that inserting a half marathon into that schedule in late November is the best of ideas, but I really really want to do it. November is such a great month for a half marathon. I know for sure I could do the 5k, no problem.
If I were to do it, I would use the Crawlin Crab weekend as my tune up race – getting back into the swing of things, and make Harbor Lights my goal race for the the fall. I’m not in as great shape as a lot of you guys are, and I tend to be injury/niggle prone. I would love to be one of those people that can race 1/2 marathons back to back weekends, or even in the same month, but I’m not there.
If I were to do this, I’d have a 7 week window between the two. I think it’s do-able, I just don’t know how smart it is. Or maybe I chose to defer Crawlin Crab till next year (which I really don’t want to do).
I know that none of you can tell me what to do, I definitely don’t expect you to; I’m just trying to work out my thoughts about it.
How much time do you like to leave between half marathons?
