This year the two most enjoyable events I have raced have been the Fat Tire Series off road duathlon and last weekends Maxtrax Duathlon. The enjoyment of this type of racing is leading me in a different direction than I thought I would take this year.
The changes will be cutting back on the total number of races I do, fewer USCF races and more running and duathlon races. Also, I'm going to try my first Triathlon race in Aug then another one in September. This will give me time to learn the swimming part. Jose should be able to help me out with this.
Here is what I have planned for the rest of the year.
May 6 Washington Crit
May 20 John Howards Biathlon
May 28 Highland Duathlon
June 23 Who Tri's Harder Ocotmax
July 7 Jokers Wild Half Marathon
July 22 MO State Time Trial
Aug 5 MO State Crit
Aug 19 Alligators Creek Triathlon
Sept 1/2 Gateway Cup
Sept 16th Octomax Triathlon
Oct/ Nov - Cyclocross
Dec 14 - USA Cross Nationals
