With a new year comes the fun of race planning. This year has been a struggle to decide what races to focus on. I have a terrible habit of wanting to do everything right away. To compound the problem I love triathlon but mostly doing Ironmans AND I love trail running specifically long races.
Honestly I would love to compete in a ironman in 2015 as well as run a 100 mile trail race. Is that possible? I have no idea. Is it smart? definitely not. So will there be a 100 mile race on the calendar in 2015 for me? I am not sure yet so I am planning out the first part of the year and see how it goes. I am certainly excited for the first part of the season:
February 14th – MOAB Red Hot 55k and 33k this is a beautiful trail race that I have been looking at for a couple years. So excited to get to race it this year, just hoping for good weather.
March 15th – Run Through Time Trail Marathon I had planned on running the half here a couple years ago but food poisoning kept us home. Fingers crossed for better circumstances this year!
May 2nd – Collegiate Peaks 50 Mile trail race – this is a big stretch, if necessary I could drop to the 25 mile but for now I gunning for the big show.
June 13th – Ironman Boulder 70.3 – I raced this in 2013 and really liked it.July 26th – Ironman Canada I have unfinished business with with IM Canada and I am determined to show up ready to race in 2015 So that’s the list for the first part of 2015, it’s ambitious but the plan is to go big in 2015, because some day I may not be able to chase these dreams the way I can now. So what are your plans for 2015, do you have your races lined up?
