2011 Racing Season Options

Ok, I’m fully committed to Escape from Alcatraz on June 5th and have been looking at what other races / training clinics I can do to prepare.

Here’s what I’ve come up with…

March 11th – Alcatraz Clinic with Pedro

April 17th Ice Breaker in Granite Bay:
Swim 0.5 mile – Bike 13 miles – Run 4 miles

April 23rd – Alcatraz Swim with Pedro

May 15 Morgan Hill Sprint Triathlon
UVAS Reservoir, Morgan Hill, CA
0.75 mile Swim – 16 Mile Bike – 5 Mile Run

June 5th Escape From Alcatraz
San Francisco!
1.5 mile swim / 18m bike / 8m run

Last year I was all amped up for Barb’s Race at the end of July and then did nothing the rest of the year. That, it turns out, is not good for me.

So there are a couple of other things that I’m considering for July to December. Keeping in mind my big annual work event is the last week in August this year so I best not commit to any races around then.

September 17-18 Bike MS Waves to Wine Ride 2011
Saturday: 40 miles or 75 miles or 100 miles
Sunday: 50 miles or 75 miles

Under the future bucket list (maybe next year?)

February 6 Kaiser Half Marathon – San Francisco

March 12 Solvang Century

March 27 Oakland Half Marathon

  1. Lots of fun options!

  2. I’d love to try a tri down here in the summer and head up to No. Cal. for my next one. Are there any good ideas for the summer or fall up there?
    It looks like you’re planning on more running next year! FUN! Come down and visit us in SD!

  3. Impressive schedule! Looks like it will definitely keep you busy and keep you fit.
    I am very proud of you and you commitment to good health.
