I love to Race. Problem: Just not enough time. When I sit down and look at my schedule for the year, I have to coordinate with Lukes' sporting games, Macy's Dance recitals, Cub Scouting events...and of course Momma's calendar. Bren is always adaptive to schedule flexibility. But I refuse to miss too many of my kids events. They are growing way too fast and I refuse to look back with regrets of being more active in their lives. That's how I roll. So with all that in mind, here is the rest of the years Race Schedule. (Keep in mind that I have already ran Bandera 50K in January and the Grasslands 50 Mile in March.
On May 30, I will race the Rogue Race - The Loop. It was my first ever trail race and is absolutely brutal for a 30K. I want to make it mine instead of it telling me "Who's the Daddy!"
On July 19, I will run the El Scorcho 50K in Fort Worth. Cool thing about the race is that it starts at midnight...so you get to run all night long. Ran it last year.
On October 30, I plan on pacing Dimitry for the Cactus Rose 100 Miler...yep...In Bandera.
On November 14. Plan on running the Rockledge Rumble 50K.
I realize there is nothing in there longer that 31 miles but that is just how the cookies crumble. Plus next year I am contemplating running the Bandera 100K (62 miles). It is to be 5 days before I turn 40. Some foolish people say..."Oh, that's good, you move up to the next age group." Oh...yeah...that's what I wanted...to be in Scott Eppelman and Glenn Mackie's Group. Eppleman, I believe lead the U.S. Mens 24 Ultra team in Italy this past weekend.... 124.91 miles!!!
