2011 Race Goals

Better late than never. And just in time for tomorrow's race! It’s a short list this year. Though I expect that may change – but we’ll see how things go with weekday hill training in CA and weekend technical trail training in MN...

  • April – Chippewa 50K, WI – 4:50. No sandbagging, just no way I am going to be beating the past 2 years’ times (4:41 and 4:41); and in fact 5:00 may be closer to the mark.

  • August – Leadville 100M, CO – 24:00.

  • December – Hellgate 100K, VA – agghhhhhh – I really, really want to put something crazy like 12:59:59 here but I’m not going to! :)

I’m half thinking of another 100M in the fall – perhaps Pinhoiti (AL) in early November. But won’t make plans until after Leadville. Same goes for Wild Duluth 100K and/or Surf the Murph 50M, October (MN). If not racing, I hope to be at these races to volunteer.

About time You blog some ... Hard to keep your blog as a favorite when you do not throw us some scraps :)

Have a great Chippewa 50K

I am doing my 1st 100 miler in Leadville this year - Please do not wear your "You just got chicked" shirt - My ego is fragile.

Have fun this weekend. Might I suggest signing up for HURT with me?

LOL - I think not MH! Will you be at FANS? Hope your year is off to a good start.

Adam - that is 5 loops right? Then... No! :)

Really sorry I'm missing Chippewa! Thanks for blogging a bit...I'm glad I can keep up on Facebook at least.

As for October...Glacial Trail again?

Free lodging with us, provided you're okay with the occasional 3 AM wake up cry of Edwin.

Pinhoti is lots of fun. I paced last year, this year I'll either pace again or volunteer, hope to see you there.

I am off to a slow start - But enjoying the year. I will be in decent shape by Leadville - But not much before.

FANS - Right now the plan is to go and do a little volunteering and a little partying.
