I saw ACDC last night. My god it was awesome. Angus Young is ridiculous. If watching ACDC doesn't fire you up, you're probably not human.
Well man am I fired up. Racing hasn't been going so well this year, so I'm more than ready to get out there and kick some ass. I took a week off after Tahoe and a week of pretty easy running, but it's go time now!
The big races are Marine Corp Marathon on October 25th and the JFK 50 on November 21st. I'm throwing in the Potomac Heritage 50K on November 1st as training and may try to get in a 50K in September, too.
I've already started to think some about the race schedule next year. I definitely tried to race too much this year, so next year I'm going for 4 big races:
Boston Marathon in April
Laurel Highlands 70 mile trail run in June
Some race in August/September that I'll hopefully travel to
Mountain Masochist 50 in November
In other running news, Dylan Fitz ran 2:58 in the hilly San Francisco Marathon and qualified for Boston. He's a beast! We're planning to run Boston together, and I hope I can keep up. Maybe we can be the fastest people to finish Boston while throwing a frisbee the whole time. Now that's a record worth shooting for.
I may also see if I can rope him in for the August/September run (I also don't think he knows this yet).
Stay tuned for some big training changes that I'm going to try this summer/fall. I'll give you a sneak previous ... I'm planning to gain ten pounds. I'm sure this will make more than one person happy.
