Three sucessful 50 km 's this year. Husband almost dies (but lived). Oldest daughter in university, youngest in middle school and competing in figure skating. Its been a busy year.
I took 3 easy weeks hiking/easy runs with my husband. I enjoyed eating and drinking whatever I want and 'relaxing'. Not suprisingly so, this has gotten boring quite quickly.
So now what?
Thankfully, I have a great running group. As my husband is out of the loop (for now), I thought I would just do the same old local races . But my friends have better plans! yaay! I am so there!
1. I LOVE the team/ friend/social aspect of runs- so much more fun than running a race alone.
2. I need a new challenge to keep me 'honest' with myself.

So my plans for next year are : tentatively....
March 19- Chuckanut 50 K
Apr 30- Capitopl peaks 50 mile - my first run exceeding 50Km and a gague for the death race.
May 15 - Tenderfoot Boogie possibly.. 50 mile or 50 km . May be too close to 50 mile above though.
July 31 ish - Canadian Death race- 125 km, ...17000 ft elevation gain . I'm so scaaaared!!!/Excited!!
Sept- Frosty mountain 50 Km. I have a bone to pick with this race. Haven't ran the whole thing.
Its starting to look like an addiction. Like, 50 km isn't enough? I'm looking for more to satisfy my running 'fix' !
