We have trained at Greenland before, last year when training for the Colorado Marathon we ran our longest training run of 22 miles there. It is a nice trail.
On Sunday we will be riding the Boco Loco century in Boulder. This also really isn't a race, there is no official timing, you can start any time between 6:30am and 10:00am.
There are some other big races happening this weekend as well. It's kinda sad that this year will be the last year of the full Ironman at St. George Utah. Ironman announced that next year they will drop to a 70.3.
“We’ve listened to our athletes and they’ve told us that while they love St. George — the people, the community and surroundings — St. George does not work for them as a full-distance Ironman,” said Andrew Messick, Chief Executive Officer of Ironman. “Our belief is that St. George will flourish as a 70.3 and we are pleased that we are continuing our relationship with St. George and with the state of Utah.”Story can be found here.
One last race on my radar this weekend is the Colorado Marathon. This was my first marathon last year so it has a special place in my heart.
Anyone racing this weekend? Tell me about it!
