Summer Planning

Geeze, with the boys last day of school being tomorrow (!) and my last day 10 days later (!) I realized I need to firm up and schedule the summer away.

I sent off registration and entered all of my summer races. Including Leadville 100, The Race Across The Sky. Oh Lord. This one scares me. I hope my weekly hill repeats at the ski hill pay off. Now I need to book my flight out and back. I think I will go out on Friday, August 8, the race is on the 16, and fly home on the 18. Juli Aisters has invited me to share a hotel room with her, and I am thinking I will do so. Juli is running the Grand Slam. Woohoo!

I also registered for Afton 50K, Voyaguer 50 Mile, Twin Cities Marathon. Superior Sawtooth 100 and Javelina Jundred haven't reached the fee increase date so I haven't yet entered these, nor have I yet entered a fall race in WI, I believe it is a 50 miler that I haven't yet run.

I have scheduled plans for the Beta III. If you click on the sidebar on August 2007 and July 2006 you will see Beta I and II pics and reports. We have a wonderful time on the Superior Hiking Trail. This year I reserved the same home we had last year, in Tofte, on the Lake Superior Shoreline. It's incredible. I made reservations for July 11-13, there are 10 that are going to attend the weekend festivities. We'll run 38 miles of the trail during the wee morning hours, allowing us to enjoy an early evening dinner on the rocky shore. Fabulous!

I've scheduled the baseball tournaments, the weekends up to the cabin, the camping weekend, the boys training camps. The calendar is becoming full.

FANS is coming up quickly. I have printed out my goals and pacing sheets. I'm ready. I'm excited. I love FANS. It's a blast!

My coaching classes are filling nicely. I have an AM class for beginning woman runners and a PM class for the same. I also have a marathon class that is almost full. I am so excited! I can't wait to begin.

Summer Vacation. 10 Days And Counting....

Sounds like a wonderful summer - tons of fun races and activities. You are going to rock FANS! I really want to do Javelina, too, but I think I'm going to have a conflict. It would be so much fun if we could run it together!
