14 in 2014


I had no problems running 13 in 2013. In fact.  I ran 22 races even though I was out with a broken foot for 2 months.

I even ran 12 in 2012 when I was out for 5 months with a broken ankle and then 2 months with a stress fracture.

So of course, I am committing for 14 in 2014!  I usually run at least 20 races (barring injury.)

I would like this year to run 14 NEW races.

Here are the races that I am thinking about:

1.  Mayors Race & Wellness Festival 10 miler in Palm Springs, CA


2.  Lighthouse 5k in St. Augustine, FL

3. LoveRun Half Marathon in Philadelphia, PA


March 30, 2014

4.  Cherry Blossom 5k in Niskayuna, NY

April 27, 2014

5.  Spring Run Off 5 K or 10k in Albany, NY

  1. Thanks, Darlene – you’re a true inspiration! I’m struggling with a strained adductor muscle – fearing I’ll never be able to run again. You give me hope!


    • #4 – Start and finish at Congregation Gates of Heaven, 852 Ashmore Ave, Niskayuna, NY – near Schenectady
      #14 – on Riverside Drive along the Hudson R


  2. I was doing a search for the Flashlight 5K in Lake George and came across your page. Do you know if this is definitely going to happen? (I haven’t seen it posted anywhere else.) I have a running goal this year, and that looked like a fun run. Thanks for any info you can share!
