Here We Go...

In about 10 days, I will be in Texas doing the first of my 12 100 milers for this year. Due to taking some time to rest over the holidays and catching a bad cold, my training is not where it should be. But, that's okay because I'm looking at the whole season rather than just this one race. This season is going to be about keeping healthy and injury-free; and staying consistent.

This upcoming race is called the Rocky Raccoon. It is in Huntsville, TX, and pancake flat. It consists of five 20 mile loops. It is a PR course for sure, but I don't think I will be pushing that hard. My goal is just to go under 24 hours. I will be leaving on Thursday morning and doing a long road trip in my car. You can check the race website for updates.

I hope to repeat the good race I had at Javelina. My goals are to practice good pacing, hydration, and mental focus.

Send good thoughts or prayers my way. Thanks!

Until the next Ultraholics adventure!
