I ran SLC in April, and was so disappointed with that race that I decided to treat it as a training run for Ogden in May.
Then I thought I should just run three more and I would have 10 marathons completed by the end of the year...In July I ran Deseret News, September it was Top of Utah, and October it was St. George, which I ran in a garbage bag, and got a PR of 4:15. ( :
It was a busy year with training and racing. After St. George, I got the post race blues and needed something new to work toward. My new goal became: Run my 40th marathon by my 40th birthday, giving me 32 months to run 30 marathons. I ran Las Vegas the beginning of December.
2009 holds a lot for me. I need to run at least 12 marathons and here is my schedule (tentative, of course) for the new year:
*January 25~Carlsbad Marathon
*March 29~Moab Marathon???
*April 18~Salt Lake City Marathon
26~Big Sur Marathon
*May 16~Ogden Marathon
*June 13~Utah Valley Marathon
*July 12~Missoula Marathon
24~Deseret News Marathon
*August 22~Park City Marathon
*September 12~Little Grand Canyon Marathon
19~Top of Utah Marathon
*October 3~St. George
*December~Las Vegas (Rock & Roll bought it, yay!)
I'm trying to do most of my races close to home or where I have a free place to stay to cut down on costs...I am excited for the upcoming year! Thanks to my family and all my running/blogging friends for all the support and encouragement! Happy New Year!
