Race Schedule

My schedule of events this summer includes:

- June 6, 2009: Blue Canyon 50K trail race (Santa Barbara)

- June 13, 2009: Lake Merritt 12-Hour Ultra run (Oakland, CA)

- June 27, 2009: Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run (Pacing Darwin Holt for 38 miles)

- August 1 - 3, 2009: Ultraman Canada (6 mile swim, 260 mile bike, 53 mile run)

Big emphasis on running in June, but these are nice, easy, comfortable run-walks (more like jog-walks) where I will average 11 - 13 minutes per mile over rough terrain.

Cycling is another big focus lately. I have to get comfortable with 170 miles in a single day, and to finish so relaxed and fresh that I am strong enough to finish a 53 mile run the next morning.
