Here's my wish list for races in 2012. As you can see, I'm looking to get into the Ultra scene this year. My family thinks I'm nuts but I'm really hoping my wife will be supportive as long as I don't try to go on a 6-8hr run every weekend. That would be way too much to ask with a 6yr old and 2yr old running rampant around the house. I'm sure I'll have to pare this down a bit. Hopefully I can add some other local 5K/10K stuff that we can run as a family.
3/18 TARC Spring Thaw 6 Hour – Harold R. Rafton Reservation, Andover, MA
This would be my first Ultra attempt.
3/31 32nd Annual Boston Tune-Up 15K - 9.3 miles, Upton, MA
This is the first race I ever did and it has a special place in my heart. And it's 4min from my house. I may volunteer for this one instead of running as this is my local club.
4/15 Boston Marathon – Not running it but volunteering at a water station.
4/28 TARC Spring Classic – Weston, MA (Registration opens 1/1 here )
I doubt I'll make this one but it might be cool.
5/12 Wapack and Back – Ashburnham, MA (Registration opens in Q112 here )
I missed this last year and it should be fun. 22mi over a bunch of peaks!
May 26-27th, 2012 Pineland Farms 50k New Gloucester, ME
This is #1 on my wish list. I've heard from tons of people that this is a hell of a party! I can't pass up a chance to meet some of my facebook friends at this one.
Somewhere in here will also be a Road Half marathon, I think. My friend Amy will hopefully be healthy enough to try her first and I want to be there for the fun!
Cheers and Merry Christmas!
