Event Planning for 2013

It is early and lots could change, but I have put together a list of possible events for next year. The big fish is Western States. But, I won't know until December 8th whether I get in (roughly a 10% chance). Therefore, much of this planning, particularly from Early May on, will be influx. My general goals for the year are to do more short trail races, increase/re-gain my running speed, and do one or two ultras. I have indicated the events that are high on my priority list below with an *. Some of this will also be dependent on whether some of my friends commit to running an ultra with me. And, we may even consider putting together a strong relay team.

One thing I had not considered until the last few days is the possibility of trying to race another marathon in an attempt to BQ. If I decide to do that, the Colorado Marathon makes the most sense.
