Race Schedule 2011

Here's the plan for the year so far... I don't like to much ahead, but its kind of necessary to avoid too many stupid situations. Hopefully I didn't forget anything. If you see something I forgot, please let me know.

I am still crossing my fingers for Hardrock. I'll know in less than a week. I also have a burro race on the calendar. That's tentative for now. There's some planning involved in that one. It's kind of a pain in the....

February 13-Montana de Oro 50K-San Luis Obispo, CA
March 12- Run Through Time Marathon-Salida, CO
April 18-Boston Marathon-Boston, MA
May 8-Kalamazoo Marathon, Kalamazoo, MI
May 21-Jemez Mountain Trail Runs-50M-Los Alamos, NM
May 30-Bolder Boulder 10K-Boulder, CO
June 4-Golden Gate Dirty Thirty 50K-Black Hawk, CO

June 25- Black Hills 100-Sturgis, SD
July 8-Hardrock 100-Silverton, CO

July 23-Crow Pass Crossing-Anchorage, AK
July 17-Aug.3- Alaskan Mountain Ultrarunning Camp

Early August-Boom Days Burro Race-Leadville, CO (yeah, you read that correctly)
August 20-Pikes Peak Ascent-Manitou Springs CO

Sometime in August-Nolan's 14 attempt (and Likely failure)

Fall-The Bear 100 or some other 100, maybe...After that, who cares...

I'll leave with a picture or two taken while out running on the front range. These were taken a few weeks ago on Green Mtn. Green Mountain is an interesting park. It gets a bad name because it gets a lot of use by all sorts, and it's not too remote. BUT, in my opinion, it still offers some seclusion and lots of wildlife, and a good climb or two (hill repeats?). Add that to it's convenience, and its a winner in my book. The views of Denver from the top at night are some of the best around.
