Here are my 12 tentative races for the year (yellow highlight indicates PR attempts). All are marathons or ultras.
|KRR Fat Ass||28||2/15/2014||91|
|Land Btwn Lakes||26.2||3/8/2014||92|
|St Louis Marathon||26.2||4/6/2014||94|
|Howl at Moon 8-hr||48||8/9/2014||pr||97|
|Across the Years||Lots of miles!||12/31/2014||pr||101|
If something goes wrong, I'll make adjustments. I'm currently targeting the Illinois Marathon on April 26 as my BQ attempt. If it goes poorly, then I'll add a fall marathon for another BQ try. In addition to the marathon personal record, I'd like to set a new PR at the 100K distance (Kettle Moraine in June) and also at Howl at the Moon 8-Hour in August. And to close out the year, what's better than the "Across the Years" race (24hr-48hr-72hr-6 day events)? Not sure which event I'll select. The shortest is 24 hours and I'd knock off more than 100 miles in that time period! Maybe 6-days of running is the best way to celebrate my 100th ultra/marathon?
