…not much is set is stone, but it is going to be EPIC. I’m probably going to boil this list down to about one event per month. I still have yet to pick my “A” race.
Ragnar Relay Florida Keys
ING Miami Marathon
I’m not super-excited about ING. My marathon buddy has been told not to run anymore. She’s been struggling with an iron deficiency, and needs to lay off of the intense and/or unnecessary stuff for a while. However, I AM excited about Ragnar! So, that is my motivation to get my training runs in, and I couldn’t be happier. After Ragnar, it’s taper time anyway!
Ok, remember how I said not much is set in stone? By that, I meant just January. The rest are possibilities, probabilities, volunteer opportunities and dreaming…
A1A Half Marathon – local, good race, though I’ll sit out unless someone convinces me otherwise.
Lake Okechobee Century – looks fun, but says that the pace is expected to be 20+mph. Really? Any good FL centuries for slower riders?
Miami Xterra – this race was canceled last year, but is on the calendar this year. Fingers crossed!
Rev3 Costa Rica – I wish! If someone pays for my plane ticket, I’ll be there!
Ocala HITS and Clermont are the same weekend – road trip weekend?
Nautica South Beach – A possibility, perhaps
MS150 Florida Keys Ride – Top of the list! I wanted to do it last year, but I was out of town! Not to mention, my friend has the hookup with the Bacardi team…
Rev3 Adventure Race – I’d LOVE to do this, but Patrick will only be 4 months post-shoulder-surgery, and unlikely to be able to participate with me
St Anthony’s Tri – I did this last year, and LOVED it, but my free lodging less than ½ mile from transition has moved to Texas.
Rev3 Knoxville – never really been to Knoxville! New city adventure?
Rev3 Quassy – More likely to volunteer/spectate this one. I don’t know how the hills would work while training in South Florida…
The Fitness Challenge Triathlon – reverse triathlon in Naples
Escape from Alcatraz – I’m in the lottery. We’ll see what happens.
Rev3 Portland – PLEASE!! I want to go to this one! The Pacific Northwest is GORGEOUS!
Rev3 Wisconsin – with many Midwestern road trips under my belt, I’d love to play at the much-advertised water parks!
USAT Nationals – I qualified at the Club Med race in November
Rev3 Maine – This one is VERY likely. My sister lives in Bahston (aka Boston), has a car, and would come with me.
Rev3 Cedar Point – I want to do this one!!! But I’ll be in Ireland the weekend before, and, while I’m a jetsetter, I’m not sure this will be possible
La Jolla Rough Water Swim – a personal favorite… but it’s the same date at Rev3 CP.
Rev3 Anderson – road-trip-able, fun, and conveniently, three weeks before Rev3 Florida. Hmmm…
Great Floridian – looks awesome, but we’ll see how the schedule works out
Rev3 Florida – Also VERY likely!!
I think I want to volunteer at IMAZ or IMFL to, perhaps, maybe, register for 2013…
Key West Tri – just for fun!
What am I missing? What races are you doing?
Anyone want to donate airline miles?
