Well, there it is. My 2011 race schedule.
Rather than write a whole, lengthy post, pontificating on my thought process and goals regarding each race, I thought I'd just summarize my impending season in the post title. I've spared you. (Mostly.)
I'm calling this The Season of Humility. Or possibly Running with the Fast Girls. Or maybe just Getting my Ass Kicked. I haven't decided yet. Regardless, it's sure to be a damn good time. I like racing.
After toning down the racing last year, largely for financial reasons, I'm cranking it back up again this year, and I'm pretty excited about it. While the title races will be the backbone of my season, comprising the races where I'll push myself, there will also be a few more short races sprinkled in there for fun. Western States, of course, is the goal race, and the only one that will get a real taper.
I don't have anything on the schedule after June, but I plan to take advantage of my fitness by spending some long days in the wilderness with friends throughout the Summer and Fall. And no matter what happens in my races, that will be the best prize I earn.
What races and adventures are on your schedule this year? Will I get to see you out on the trail?
