You can also listen to my report HERE.
Happy New Year everyone! This is Sara from wordstorunby.com reporting on the Ohio race scene for Pace Per Mile Radio.
Many of us, especially here in the Midwest, are heading into a racing break over the winter months. Perhaps you are taking some extra time to cross or strength train or even focus on a new training plan for an upcoming spring race.
If you’re taking a break from running exclusively, check out the Lifetime Fitness Indooor Tri Series, which kicks off in Deerfield on February 19. Commit to accomplishing your goal of becoming a triathlete in 2012! There’s never been a better way to become a triathlete or get in shape for your outdoor races. The event takes place indoors and includes a 10 minutepool swim, 10 minute transition, 30 minute spin bike, 5 minute transition and 20 minute treadmill run. I have never trained for a triathlon, but this sounds like something I could definitely achieve. Go to www.indoortri.com to find additional information, including race dates and locations.  
Or maybe you are looking for a great winter race in hopes of Qualifying for Boston in 2013? The Last Chance for Boston Race takes place on February 26. This course is unique because it is a 1 mile loop course and offers a very spectator friendly race environment, with 26 fluid and support stations! I don’t know if I could run 26 one-mile loops, but if you decide to take on the challenge, I would love to hear about your experience. Other Last Chance events include unique team relays, a 1/2 marathon, 5K and 10K! If you need more than 4 hours and 45 minutes to complete the race, please plan to start early as the course closes at 12:45 p.m. See www.premierraces.com for additional information.
Want to change your life one mile at a time and have fun while doing it?! If you’re in Columbus, it’s not too late to sign up for the winter training session of Marathoner in Training. The last information session and kick-off workout is this Saturday, January 7th at 7:45 a.m. at Thomas Worthington High School. Visit www.trainwithmit.com for complete details. Spring races include the Cap City Half Marathon, Earth Day and Flying Pig.
