2012 – The time is now

Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting so…get on your way. ~ Dr Seuss

January 1st 2012 run up to Queen of Hearts trail that over looks Ashland.

I feel that 2012 will be the most focused I’ve ever been. Over the next year I want to connect the earth, my body and mind to be one and ready for whatever will be. I’m excited to put forth a strong effort in all I do as I train, work, love and live. I’m very grateful for life and I look forward  to enjoying this journey as it unfolds.

2011 was a lot of fun, I’m excited to see what 2012 has in store. I’ve raced all over this past year and my body has responded well to the volume. My body has been a little worn down from the North Face run, but I look forward to one more go in Bandera Texas next weekend. I’ll be racing the 100k and it looks like another strong field of runners.

I plan to give the body a good rest after next weekend, to let this past year soak in and let my body gear up for another exciting year in 2012. After Bandera I plan on going for more relaxed runs/hikes with my wife and just kick back for a while until I feel rejuvenated and ready to ramp up the training come spring.

My race plans for 2012

Bandera 100k                 1/7/12

Chuckanut 50k               3/17/12

Lake Sonoma 50m        4/14/12

Leona Divide 50m         4/28/12

Ice Age 50m                     5/12/12

Western States 100        6/23/12

Tahoe Rim Trail 100     7/21/12

Run Rabbit Run 100     9/14/12

North Face 50                 12/4/12

Uff Da!

That should keep me busy…

Happy New year to all. Many blessings to you and your kin as you live it up in 2012.

    Me thinks that looks like an Montrail Ultra Cup-inclusive schedule. Planning to give Old Man Mackey a run for the money?

    Speaking of Uf-da, that’s gonna be a hell of a four weeks from 4/14 to 5/12! See you in a few…

    You’ll be missed at P2P, but Steamboat should be quite a race. I know it’s not all about money, but a little scratch for a win would be nice, eh? Cheers to a happy healthy 2012!!!

    Stout race schedule. I’ll be lacing them up with you at Chuckanut, Leona Divide, and (fingers crossed) WS. Should be an awesome year!

  5. Matt Thomas says:

    It should be exciting to tackle an ultra back home in ‘Sconsin with the Ice Age 50m. You should have plenty of fans and crew support for that race!

    Hi Tim, glad to see you have the iceage 50 on your to do list. I will be there as well. It sure is a well organized event. If you and your wife need a ride back to Amherst we would be able to help you out. We hear about all of your adventures from your parents. Tammy

    • Thanks Tammy,
      I’m really looking forward to racing an ultra back in my Home State. I’ll let you know on the ride, but i have a feeling i’ll be bringing a platoon of family and friends to the event.
      Will be great to see you down there!
      take care,
