tentative 2009 racing schedule

Ok… 2009 already has 15 races that I know I want to do (in bold), and a bunch of choices for the other ten or so to fill out the year. I’ll probably race 8-12 of those 20 weekends, putting me at 23-27 total for the year. I’d like to do at least 2 marathons, hopefully 2 50ks, and at least one open water swim (leaning towards the Sharkfest), just for the hell of it. July will be interesting…a mile on the 4th, and the TRT 50k 2 weeks later J I’ll probably do (at most) the minimum 5 Grand Prix races next year to earn points, especially with the Salmon Run going under. This year was my last shot at the overall title…stupid Achilles L Of course, some of the Saturday races will depend on being able to get time off. That’s always fun!

(jaw drop) I don't even want to add up the entry fees for those...

Turi said...

Come to think of it, you probably make your entry fee back on quite a few of those, huh?

breaking even or being in the black would be nice. usually there are several that do not have a monetary or merchandise award, but one that does can make up for more than one entry fee. Personally, I'd like to see more breweries & sushi joints sponsor races!!! Are you guys listening?
