Last week Rachel and I went out to dinner as sort of a belated 3rd anniversary dinner since I was travelling to VA for Hellgate on our actual anniversary. During the conversation we touched a bit on racing next year and one race in particular: Leadville. I've been adamant that I wouldn't touch it because we're planning on having another child, but when we were talking and determining the time-frame, it would actually fit. For now I'm going to wait a while and talk it over a bit more, but there is a seed planted, and I'm not even going to mention my goals for 2011. Not yet at least. Below are races that I'm looking at and some that I'm committed to. So far the ones set in stone are: Ponderous Posterior 50K, and Way Too Cool 50K. Everything else is up in the air, and certainly depends on weather or not I decide on Leadville. My main goal for scheduling races is to stay closer to home and make things as easy as possible on my family. The two out of town races are an exception, but not really. Way Too Cool is scheduled into a vacation to see Rachel's sister, and my family in CA. If we go to bighorn, my best friend has family in Dayton and we'd likely be able to stay in a cabin. For now, I've got some thinking to do.
*bolded races are getting serious consideration*
