We're a couple weeks into 2011 and I (E) didn't have any new year's resolutions, so I'm at least good there. For the next 50 weeks, I'm really not sure what will happen.
For the last 6 years, we have been signed up for an Ironman at least a year in advance. Without any definite races on the schedule, this year will be a bit different. We are already looking towards getting to Minnesota in July/August which was difficult to do in the past due to Canada and/or Lake Placid. We are planing on doing the awesome Mt Taylor Quadrathlon in a month and racing cyclocross next season (Madison in January?).
But, with new "freedom", comes new opportunities. Road biking, mtn biking, and running are all possibilities. Personally, I don't have any desire to swim, but A hasn't ruled out tri's. If I/we focus on road biking, there are a number of short stage races that we might do (Salida, Glenwood Springs, Deaddog, Steamboat). If we do mtn biking, it would mostly be for cross reasons as bike handling and dealing with difficult terrain is still the biggest weaknesses for both of us. Running might be the only option if work hours prevent a decent amount of biking.
So, what will 2011 bring? I really don't know, but it should be fun to find out.
