Summer '10 Race Calendar

It's only the 2nd week in May and I can say 2010 is already shaping up to be my most epic runnng/racing/adventuring year ever!

February-May 2010

This year to date I've run the following:
  • (1) 100 Mile Trail Races (Rocky Raccoon)
  • (2) 50 Mile Trail Races (Desert R.A.T.S. and Collegiate Peaks)
  • (1) Trail Marathon (Salida)
  • (1) 8 mile race
  • (2) 10k's
  • (1) 5k
So that's 8 races in just over 3 months, (including 3 ultras) and my body is feeling great! However, this is just the tip of the iceburg. The following is my race schedule from now through October:

  • 5/16/10 Colfax Marathon, Denver, CO (2:57.xx goal time)
  • 5/22/10 Jemez Mountain 50 Mile Trail Race, Los Alamos, NM
  • 5/29/10 Bolder Boulder, Boulder, CO (Tentative)
  • 6/18/10 Bighorn 100, Sheridan, WY (Pacing Jon Teisher)
  • 6/26/10 Western States 100, CA (Pacing Andy Henshaw)
  • 7/9/10 Hardrock 100, Silverton, CO
  • 8/8/10 Silver Rush 50, Leadville, CO
  • 8/21/10 Leadville 100, Leadville, CO
  • 9/18/10 MAS 50, Moab, UT (or equivalent 50 miler)
  • 10/9/10 XTerra Trail Marathon, Colorado Springs, CO
  • 10/16/10 24 Hours of Boulder, Boulder, CO
Along the way I'll be doing high altitude training on just about every weekend that I don't have a race. The plan is to do Hardrock in less than 32hrs and Leadville in less than 21hrs. Everthing else I'm doing leading up to these races is strictly for the purpose of training for these 100 milers!

So far, so good...
