Instead of running around the beautiful mountains of Virginia, I've been cleaning house, decluttering, painting my nails (really!!! I did!!!!) and thinking about future race plans.
Already signed up/paid for:
Buzzard Day 50K March 15 Medina Ohio
Zion 100 Mile Race April 4 Virgin, Utah
Medina 1/2 Marathon (Road Race) May 31
The Barkley Fall Classic 50K September 20 Wartburg, TN
I have to admit that the BFC was a total impulse. I was a bit drunk, the Monday night after returning home from TWOT (or maybe it was Sunday night..) I saw an email announcing the race. The race is on my four day weekend. I had been contemplating the IMTUF 100 in Idaho for that weekend. But I instantly decided it was far easier (logistically) to stay on this side of the Mississippi and run Laz' brand new race. I can also just drive (albeit a long drive) to Wartburg, TN.
I have a bit of volunteering weekends mixed in there-Forget the PR 50K and 1/2 marathon the weekend of April 12; probably Laurel Highlands June 14, and volunteering at Hardrock in July! I will also be working our NEO TC Club Race, YUTC, September 15.
On the almost certain list- The Ring, August 30. Since missing Reverse Ring, it appears I need to go back in the heat and complete this again.
I would not mind finding a long run in the East for October, November, December. But if it a race I have to travel a long distance to, it has to engage me. It has to be...hard...or a beautiful course, and not an out and back. I still have not figured this one out yet! But hey, there is still all day Sunday!!
