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

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