Don’t work harder than you can breathe,and you’ll never get out of breath.-- Johnny Nuguyen
Haven't been running all that long, but I've run a couple of races twice already now. I don't know that I'll hit those races up another time. All depends with time of course. I figure there's got to be something to really make me want to a race more than a couple of times.

Next race: Ashland 4th of July 10K
I've done the Bloomsday 12K in Spokane, WA about 16 times now since I first ran it 1983. Repeating the same race is a good way to track how my running has progressed or regressed over the years. We also have a local early March half-marathon that I first ran in 1983, and I've probably run it 6 times since then. It's flat, fast and not very crowded. The weather can be sketchy however.
We have a few other local early season 5k and 10k races that I've done several times in recent years. Again, it's a good way to track my running progress or lack there of from one year to the next.
In general if I have a good experience at a race, I'll make an effort to run it again the following years.

I've run the Frederick Half Marathon 3 times in 4 years. It was my first HM and I love it. It doesn't hurt that the start line is a 20 minute drive from my house.

Running for TJ
I have only one race that I have duplicated so far. There are a couple others coming up later this year that I will be duplicating.
as long as I can, I will be running the Savannah River Bridge Run annually.
You have to run through the valley if you want to get to the mountain top!
Next goal: Mad Marsh 50K (November 2014)
Would you ask a golfer how many times they would play Augusta?
The following I would continue to race annually:
The Peachtree Road Race - a tradition with my son. Plus two small 5K races that benefit programs for disabled adults.

I ran the Cambridge CityRun 5-Miler and the Newton 10K for the first time each last year. I ran them again this year, to see how different my time would be. (I began running half a month before last year's Cambridge CityRun.)
I ran the Jerusalem Marathon for the first time this year. I plan to do it again in 2014. The course is just breathtaking.
