I cut WAY back on racing this year. I still run with the Fleet Feet Racing Team, but I'm being much more selective about what races I do and I'm spending more time just out there exploring and running for fun.
More Trail Runs!- this is always the goal. I'm signed up for the North Face ECSNY 10k again this year and we are hoping to get together a marathon relay team as well, so it might be back to back 10k's for me. We'll see how that goes. I'm also signed up for the English's Ridge Run 10 miler (which is pushing my distance limit) and now that I've got an Ultra Runner account I'm trolling that site for new races to check out as well!
More Relays: I did Seneca 7 a few years ago and loved it, and then last year we relayed the Mountain Goat, which was also a great time. Since my legs won't hold out for long distances anymore this is a great way to still participate in some of those epic races without killing myself.
Run the National Parks: This is a tough one. This summer we are hoping to take an epic family road trip that will hopefully hit 17 National Parks. I want to run in every single one we hit. Even if it's a quick miler, or a sprint up the trail to a overlook, I'd like to run in every park we hit up! Check the blog this summer to see how it goes!
A Recap of 2017:
Run a Tough Mudder- This was a huge success- I managed to complete every single obstacle and did way more then I thought I would be able to. I also had an absolutely amazing time doing it!
More Trail Running!- This summer I lived in the Adirondacks, so this was another huge success. I got in a lot of trail running and hiking and got real muddy in the process.
Stop running long distance- this was mostly a success- I did one half marathon and I took it really slow, so I managed to escape mostly unscathed. I'm continuing to stick to 10k's and trail runs and my legs are much happier for it.
