    I was expecting the Mt Taylor Quad!
  • Humm, maybe that should be a spring training race for her?

  • Uhh...no.  Sorry, that's a little more hardcore than I'm willing to do.  Hehehe...just b/c you found it makes me question your sanity!  Here's the plan though since I manage to leave things out on this board:

    08 - marathon

    09 - Jay Benson triathlon (May 10, yikes!), ABQ Century (50 mile ride), and a fall marathon (entered NYC lotto, but if I don't get in, I'm looking at Philly...Duke City if I have to).

    10 - *Possibly* Mt. Taylor Quad (as a team...I only know how to run/bike!  this is way up in the air still), Jemez Mountain 50k, NYC Marathon entry if I don't get in this year, Chicago Marathon if I DO run NYC this year, maybe Kauai Marathon if I enter NYC and don't get in for the second year (does that make sense?).  At least one olympic distance triathlon and a full century (100 mile ride) too...not sure which, prob ABQ Century.

    2011 - Half Ironman for sure, at least one century ride, NYC Marathon entry (if I haven't gotten in by this point), Marine Corps Marthon if I have run NYC (some other fall back up marathon if I still don't get into NYC).

    2012 - If I haven't made it into NYC by this point, I'm automatically in this year...but I'll be deferring my entrance to 2013 most likely b/c this is the year I want to do a full Ironman triathlon.  2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run.

    Plan's not set in stone though...an IM will be pretty hard to fit in w/in 3 years and I'd like to do some other ultras...although I don't know if I'd ever do anything over 50k.  MAYBE one 50 miler just to know what it's like.

    Damn you Nest for screwing up my siggy!

  • Wow, marathon shape for 4 years in a row!  Go you.  So why is NY your big goal?  (I know it is a big, famous race, but is there a personal reason?)

    You can question my sanity if you want to....I saw that race and thought "oh, fun! I want to do that" then quickly realized that was crazy.

    I would say look into the Santa Fe century.  Three hard core riders at work do it every year and say it's the best in NM.

    I am just tired from thinkingabout all that running!

  • I did the 25 mile ride of the SF Century last year and I really want to do more this year...but I really don't think I'll be ready.  If I do ABQ it'll give me a couple more weeks to prepare.  SF was a blast though!  So much fun!  I'm definitely going to do it next year!

    NY just seems like fun...I have a whole list of marathons I want to do...ultimately I want to do 2-3 a year.  Plus, my best friend lives in NYC, so it's an extra excuse to go see her.  Wink  It's just kind of one of those things that you do if you run marathons...Boston is a big one, but I don't think I'll ever qualify.  I'd love to do Chicago, Philly, Marine Corps, Bataan Death March, Honolulu, Nike Women's...I'm actually going to try for the 50/50 club (a marthon in each state).  But the holy grail is Ironman....that's actually the main goal.

    Damn you Nest for screwing up my siggy!

    You're sounding like one of my bosses at work.   He does the quad every year as training for a triathalon (run, bike, snow shoe) up in Canyonlands.  He just did teh Ironman this year - said it was the most fun he ever had racing.  We joke he doesn't lunch - he takes runch, swunch, bunch (as in runs, bikes, swims).
