For running, 2009 sucked. Low mileage, not one single ultra or marathon completed. There, that is past. Done. On to 2010.
A-#1 goal for 2010: run a respectable time at Cascade Crest. Having volunteered for the past three years (four?), I am certain to get in. My previous best time is 21:10. Can I equal that or better it? Not sure. I will be six years older when the race is held. It will completely depend on what I can do for training. Incidentals along the way -
January 2nd - one lap of the Tiger Mt. Fat Ass
January 9th - Bridle Trails (?)
January 24th - Yours Truly 50k (?)
February 6th - Orcas Island 50k (?)
March 6th - Invest in Youth 6 hour (RD)
March 20th - Chuckanut 50k (yes!)
April 11th - Mt. Si (yes)
April 17th - Wenatchee marathon (?)
May 1st - Sunflower Iron (?)
May 8th - Lost Lake 50k (?)
May 15th - Watershed Preserve 12 hour (?)
June 9th - Blanchard Mt. 50k (?)
July 31st - White River 50 (yes)
August 28th - CCC (YES)
As you can see there are quite of few maybe's listed. Spring events may be eliminated by my attending some CWU track meets. I am also planning to ride STP again this year on July 17th, with daughter Kelsey. Hopefully, we can both fit in some training rides.
If I sign up for enough races, I will be forced to get back into shape. Right?
