My 2008 Races

It's almost the end of the year. Several inches of snow is covering the trails and streets. Good time to stay inside and think about the future. I guess that means I should think about 2008. The end of 2007 has worked out well for me. I have combined some speed work with long trail runs and a couple short races. Might as well continue that training and racing into next year. Here is my tentative 2008 race schedule:

Jan 5 Siberian Express 7.5 Miler
Jan 26 Riddle Run 28 Miler
Feb 2 Lake Mingo 28 Miler
Mar 8 Land Between the Lakes 60K
Mar 22 Mountain Goat 15K
Mar 29 Clinton Lake 30 Miler (can you run your own race?)
Apr 12-13 McNaughton Park 100 Miler
Apr 19 Double Chubb 25K
May 10 Long Island Greenbelt 50K
May 26 Memorial Day 5K
June 14 Lake Mingo 7.2 Miler
Mid June 7-Day Trail Run (with 100th Full Moon Run)
June 28 Clear Pond 5-Hr
July = off!
Aug 9 Howl at the Moon 8-Hr
Sept 21 Rock Cut Hobo 50K
Sept 28 Wild Wild Wilderness 7.5 Miler
Oct 18 Farmdale 33 Miler (and IL Grand Slam Awards!)
Nov ? Run for the Library 5K
Dec ? Da Deer Run 8K

I'm a little tired just looking at the schedule: 11 ultras and 8 short races. Bring on the new year. Of course, as buffalo runners go, this type of schedule puts me somewhere in the middle of the pack! Those buffalo brothers & sisters are a bunch of crazies.
