I’ve really struggled with a schedule this year. It’s usually easy for me to pick out all the fun events I want to do over a year – but I’ve decided that I need a rebuilding year. I’m going to take it a little slow and focus on shorter events including a few half marathons and shorter triathlons. Also, since I’m new in town I’d like to do a few more local events, 5ks and club runs to get to know other runners in the community.
Below are some of the events I plan to do this year. It’s pretty accurate up to the Mt Lemmon Half, but expect a revision in the March timeframe where I hope to have picked out 2 other traithlons and 1-2 more halfs for this year. My training will be focused on that half, since it is a 3000+ foot climb and is at elevation.
