2017 Plans and Goals

If you haven’t figured it out by now I am always planning for the next race. Now that 2016 is done,  2017 planning is pretty much complete (I don’t waste much time) – for the first 2/3 of the year at least.

Here is the plan as of now:

February 12th, 2017 The Rock Cobbler 4.0 – 80 to 100 mile gravel ride, route to be determined. I am terrified. This is the first race I have ever signed up for where there is a real possibility I may not finish. I need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. This is the perfect race for that!

March 5th, 2017 The Desert Triathlon Olympic Distance La Quinta, CA- I have done this race many times so I am excited to have another go at it. This year I need to race stronger on the bike so this will be a chance to really try to push hard on the bike for the entire race.

April 1st, 2017 The Great Race of Agoura – I am doing the team marathon with my running partner Sarah . She will run the trail half and I will run the road half. Our combined time will be our marathon time.

April 17th, 2017 The Boston Marathon – shooting for 3:30 or faster! I am super excited for this!!

May 13th, 2017 Ironman Santa Rosa 70.3 – Once again the goal will be to push as hard on the bike as I possibly can. I want to push so hard that I actually blow up at some point during this race.

September 10th, 2017 Ironman Wisconsin – I am saying it now. I want to qualify for Kona. I know that isn’t completely under my control but I will do everything I can to make this happen.

After this I am sure I will do a fall marathon and enjoy some cross racing as well. But this is enough for now!
