Here's what I'm thinking of doing next year:
Chippewa Moraine 50K
Med City Marathon
Paavo Nurmi Marathon
Moose Mountain Marathon
Wild Duluth 50K
I'd probably add Voyageur 50 as a non-raced race and maybe switch Moose Mtn. to Superior 50 or Sawtooth 100, if the year goes well. I'm also thinking of adding the snowshoe race that goes up Timm's Hill in Wisconsin, as it gives me a reason for doing another state high point.
That's about 600 miles fewer of races planned than last year! No racing 5 ultras in 6 weeks! Six races, evenly spaced, all about the same length. Have I finally become sane?
I'm hoping to get in shape and really nail one of those races, but I'm not saying which one. The insanity is the time goal I've set.
