Goals? What’s next?
It’s been awhile since I have written. Life has been throwing some curveballs my way so I have needed to take a bit of a break from the blogging world. I have also been feeling a little lost lately in terms of goals for myself with running, triathlon, and other racing. My last big goal race that I trained for with a coach was the Boston Marathon in 2017 which seems like ages ago. Since then I have done a few races including the CHAD Hero Half Marathon, a tiny 5K, and the Ascutney and Loon Mountain races but I didn’t follow specific training plans for any of these races. It has been nice to take a break from regimented training but now I am chomping at the bit to train for something big and perhaps to working with a coach again.
I NEED a BIG goal in my life!
Here are some ideas I am tossing around:
- Half Ironman or Olympic Distance Triathlons-Work with a coach and start racing next summer
- Jump back into marathons?
- 25K Mountain Race
One exciting adventure that I do have coming up is the Ragnar Los Coyotes Trail Race in Warner Springs, California on November 9-10 with Sweat Pink. I am thrilled to have been picked for this fun trail racing adventure. I will be running with these other awesome runners:
I have done many relay races before including Reach the Beach New Hampshire but this will be my first trail Ragnar. The course is series of three rugged double track trails that all lead back to the Ragnar Village where we will have a campsite set up. The total mileage for each runner is 14.20 miles. Each of the three trails varies in difficulty, easy, intermediate, and hard.
I can’t wait to hit the trails in a part of the world that I have never been to before.
What do you think should be my next goal? What big goals and fun adventures do you have coming up?
