334 Days Until Race Day

Once the running bug hit me, I became borderline addicted to racing. 5k, 10k, 8k, half marathon, marathon, trail, road, ultra, etc I didn’t care. Get me an entry & let me race! Then 2016 rolled around, and I went from four full marathons in five weeks, to “I have NYC Marathon in November.”

Following our move from Las Vegas, to the Pacific Northwest, I only had the Crater Lake & TCS New York City Marathons on tap for the foreseeable future. There were a very small handful of local races that could have been entered. Not wanting to risk illness in one of them, I figured I would focus on trying to train for the upcoming races.

Now, I am back in the same situation.

Only one race pre-registered, and it is nearly a full year away.

What am I supposed to do? I love to race. The social aspect of running embodied, with some added motivation to push myself toward the finish.

So, while I am not writing race reports multiple times a month, I’ll have to find something new to write about.

Any ideas?

I am thinking about these possibilities:

  • Prescott area trails
  • Focused training
  • More gear reviews
  • … Ideas?
