So what's next for this brand new year? Potentially big things. And lots of them. Maybe. Here's the tentative list of upcoming races. Will they all happen? Well, yes, but whether I'm participating is yet to be determined. Obviously, this is a huge amount of competitive mileage and there are two main questions that will determine how much of this outlandish layout I will actually accomplish: 1. Will I be able to keep my body healthy to allow for this volume of punishment? and 2. Can I afford it?
January 17th - Capitol Peak Mega Fat Ass 50k+
February 14th - Moab Red Hot 50k+
March 21st - Antelope Island 50 Mile
April 25th - Zane Grey Highline Trail 50 mile (combined with another Grand Canyon R2R2R two days later)
May ? - Still looking for something...
June 6th - Squaw Peak 50 Mile
June 19th - Big Horn 100
July 11th - Hardrock 100 (if I get in via the lottery. Nolan's 14 will be the substitute)
August 3rd-9th - John Muir Trail
August 22nd - Leaadville 100
September 12th - Plain 100
October 2nd - D.R.T.E. 100
At least I've got some goals.
It's still snowing here. I'm going running.
