What’s next?


Western States is over and 2017 is now more than halfway over! I intentionally left my calendar for the second half of the year blank. I really wanted to focus on Western States, and there’s no way of knowing how the body will recover after a hard 100-miler.

With that being said, I’m alive and in one piece! I wouldn’t say I’m recovered, but I do feel like I’m on my way. For the rest of the year, I’m tentatively planning:

0 SPF Half Marathon (July 15)

Twisted Branch 100k (August 19)

Free to Run 50-Miler (September 16)

Oil Creek 100 (October 14)

Syracuse Half Marathon (November 12)

This is a very tentative list – I’m not signed up for most of these races yet. More than anything, they are just ideas bouncing around in my head. One day at a time!

I’m a bit deflated after Western States. There’s that post-race letdown that so many of us get, and there is also a bit of disappointment because I didn’t end up having the race I was hoping for. However, what’s done is done, which is part of the reason I’ve started looking forward.

What races are you looking forward to this year?

    Free to Run 50 miler looks like a very interesting race. I am running my first 50 miler this fall, Mountain Masochist, in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sounds like a great mix of races you are looking forward to.

    I have no race plans, but am looking forward to building my long runs back up to around half marathon distance. Once I get there, I’m sure a race will come out of the woodwork. 🙂
