2012: The Year of…

After 10 days of traveling, we returned home late last night, ready to settle into 2012.

Brent and I spent a lot of time during our trip talking about the past year and the one to come.

There was all sorts of introspection and retrospection and future-spection on the life front – but on the racing front, all conversations were geared toward prepping for the next ten months.

The schedule for the year is almost set.  So far we’ve got:

The Snowgaine (2-day snowshoeing race) in New York – March 10/11

The Palmetto Swamp Fox (12-hour adventure race) in South Carolina – March 17

The Natchez Trace (12-hour adventure race) in Tennessee – March 24

The Rev3 Epic (28-hour adventure race) in Virginia – April 21/22

The NYARA Longest Day (24-hour adventure race) in New York – May 19/20

The GOALS ARA Cradle of Liberty (the 24-hour adventure race Brent and I are designing and directing!) in Pennsylvania – June 2/3

The Untamed New England (4-day adventure race) in Maine – June 19-24

The Adidas Terrex (5-day adventure race) in Scotland – August 18-25

The East Coast Adventure Racing Championship (24-hour adventure race) in Pennsylvania – September 14/15

The US Adventure Racing Association National Championship (30-hour adventure race) in New York – October 12/13

Brent enjoyed the training plan we put together last year and requested that we come up with a new one this time around, so we’ve got a date to put that together later today.

In the meantime, I need a name for the upcoming racing season.

If 2010 was the Year of the Bike and 2011 was the Year of Extreme, 2012 is shaping up to be the Year of… what?

What’s bigger than Extreme?

    And I’d so love to come out there for your race. Logistically and financially, it’s unlikely, but it would be awesome
