Holiday Detox and 2012 Race Plans

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I have been busy with family and training. I took a couple days off of eating healthy to celebrate Christmas and it feels good to be back to eating healthy and focusing on nutrition.

This week in training is supposed to be a recovery week but since I am on vacation and have extra time Coach decided he would push the recovery week to next week and load me up this week.

As 2011 winds down I am excited to plan my races for 2012. There are two goals for next year so the first half of the year will focus on training for Ironman CDA and the second half will focus on training for a trail ultra marathon. My race plans are set for the until July (weird to think about July when there is snow on the ground) plans are a little more up in the air after that.

Here are our race plans for 2012:
January 21: Frosty's Frozen 5 mile

February 18: Snowman Stampede 10 mile

April 1: Boulder Spring Half Marathon

April 21: RAGE half ironman (Vegas)

May 20: Colfax Marathon

June 24: Ironman Coeur d'Alene

July 20-21: Epic Relay

Late September/early October: Devils Mountain 50k

There will be some more small races and we will fill in the Aug/Sept races later but so far I am excited about 2012 races season! I got a little sick this morning when I realized that I have a half ironman in April!

Do you have your 2012 races planned? What are your "A" races?


  1. I am jealous of your race schedule. Good luck with all of them!

    I am doing the Disney Marathon next week and then Boston in April. Besides that I planning on multiple fun marathons and half's.

  2. You have a great race schedule so far. I love the Frosty Frozen and Snowman Stampede. I did both of those races a couple of years back.

    Good luck!

  3. An Ironman and an ultramarathon?! You are awesome! Good luck!

  4. Gah, I'm so jealous of your race schedule!! You're going to have SUCH an awesome 2012!!

  5. Awesome schedule! It's going to be a great year for you!

  6. Awesome schedule! Funny when you put all the races down on paper, how they add up. I think the Snowman Stampede looks like the most fun :-) Here's wishing you a GREAT 2012!

  7. You have some great races. I may see you at the Snowman Stampede but I won't run it, just volunteer. I may do the Colfax Marathon also, but just for training. My "A" marathon will come in the fall, hopefully.
    Happy 2012!!

    P.S. just sent you an email

  8. Um, you are my HERO!! I can't wait to follow all of your training and racing!! Not too many plans for me this year yet!
