Race Plans For 2011
So, it's starting to come together for 2011. First things first, back on The Primal Diet until I get down to 150lbs. I will allow myself one case of Old Milwaukee each time I lose 5 more lbs. I'm starting at (gasp, not good) 175lbs, so I get a case @ 170,165,160,155,and finally 150 lbs. I think that's tough, but fair. I better hurry, as it looks like our first race will be the Glacier Ridge 50K in Moraine State Park, Pennsylvania on April 9th. The girls will be coming along for the shopping at the famous "Grove City Outlet Mall." I hope to use this as a training run for The Seaton Trail 50 Miler in Pickering Ontario on April 16th, which will be my 1st 50 miler. After that is a "Back 2 Back" weekend at the beginning of June, starting with The Always Tough 12 Mile Creek Half-marathon on June 4th near St. Catherines, Ontario, followed by the Phlox 25K on June 5th in Brantford Ontario, hometown of This Guy.
I'm also planning on doing the Creemore Vertical Challenge 50K on July 2nd. I love this race, it is partly sponsored by The Creemore Springs Brewery, and RD Pierre has a large keg at the finish, so you can have an excellent beer or two while relaxing in the Mad River. The Dirty Girls 6 Hour Race (my first 6 hour race) is on the radar for August 6th, then The Battle of Waterloo Survival Race (my first survival race) on August 14th in Michigan,which looks like a blast. Anyhow, this all sets up The Big One in November,
THE FRICKIN' R2R2R AT THE GRAND CANYON, ARIZONA!!!!
So another one gets crossed off the bucket list.
Here are a few more shots from my last run of 2010.

|Darn Beavers. Filthy,Destructive Rodents.|
|Nice Shot of the Don River|
So, here we go! It's 2011, game on. My biggest concern right now is getting back to race-weight! I had a little too long of an off season.
