Many people have multiple "A" events in a season, do you? How do you prep for multiple peaks throughout the entire year and still maintain interest in the your "B" and "C" events?
Hoping to manage a Half Ironman triathon...maybe July 3rd. That would be my "A" event....I think...also thinking of a marathon in the fall, which could certainly qualify as an "A" event. These would be firsts for me. "B" event was run a few weeks ago...half marathon...and hoping to run another one in early April "Run for the Retina" in London Ontario, a fundraiser for retina research... Everything depends on how my former(I hope former) fractured femur holds out....less running and more cross training...and of course work schedule can also interfere with events!! "B" event will also be Olympic distance tri in Sarnia, end of July.
It is interesting how an impossible goal less than 3 years ago is now a "B" event for me! Decide, commit, sacrifice, suffer and give it everything you have has brought me from the couch and snack isle (and the oversize ladies shop) to the finish line (and the bikini section...well, maybe I shouldn't be in the bikini section).
Justfinish has been a great support in the persuit of my impossible dreams!
I guess I have two "A" races this year. I am signed up to run the Black Hills 100 ultra marathon in Sturgis, South Dakota, which will (hopefully) be my first time running 100 miles nonstop. And my other "A" race is the Dances With Dirt (DWD) 50K in Hell, Michigan. I ran DWD last year and it was so much fun. Can't wait to do it again this year!
Good luck at Western States! My race in South Dakota is actually on the same day (June 25), otherwise I would have been cheering you on at the Duncan Canyon aid station (mile 23) hosted by my racing team Quicksilver Running Club of San Jose. But if you need anything just tell the aid station captain Dorsey Moore that John Burton said to hook you up ;)
Yeah, I loved Dances with Dirt. I got third place last year (about 4 minutes back from the two leaders) so if I am in good shape I'd like to try and contend for the win this year!
