May-Gulf Coast Tri (half iron-Panama City Beach)-I have some spanking to do on that course<br><br>
July-Ironman Lake Placid<br><br>

And whatever else CS tells me to do. I'm his tri-bitch.

OK, I think 2008 will look like this...<br><br>
March - VA beach half marathon<br>
April - Riverwood sprint<br>
June - Kerr Lake Oly<br>
August - Steelhead HIM ...my first HIM!<br>
November - Richmond marathon. Maybe<br><br>
I might throw in a sprint in September or October just to get in one last tri for the season, depending on how I feel after steelhead, and how the marathon training is going.<br><br>
Tithers - 2 IM's in 2008??? You are amazing!

Me? No. But we'll be in Lake Placid so IronHubby can do IMLP for the third consecutive year. You and I must hook up before then so I know who else to cheer for! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I'm new here...a possible convert from "another board".<br><br>
I am a social racer, so there are lots in the works:<br><br>
1/13/08 - Houston Marathon (I have a serious bone to pick with the little 26.2 distance, so AAA race)<br>
1/27/08 - 3M Austin 1/2 (maybe)<br>
2/9/08 - Surfside 1/2 Marathon - all on a beach, lots of fun<br>
2/17/08 - Austin 1/2 or Whole Marathon...hopefully just the half<br>
3/16/08 - Seabrook 1/2 Marathon<br>
3/30/08 - Lonestar 1/2 Ironman (just swim and bike, will have someone run for me)<br>
4/13/08 - IMAZ - other AAA race of the year. Using Tithers as inspiration I hope to take a chunk off my 15:31 from last year<br>
5/10/08 - Gulf Coast 1/2 Ironman<br>
June, July, August - lots of local sprints<br>
October/November - 1-2 HIM's, no idea yet

I have all sorts of weirdness that really prevents a good solid schedule from taking shape<br><br>
I had an overseas work detail that was set to take place in January, but that's not happening now. However, it threw off plans for the Napa Valley Marathon in March. However, said work detail probably will happen in mid-June and eat up 6-8 weeks.<br><br>
I've been nursing a bunch of slow healing, nagging injuries, and am awaiting a relatively clean bill of health before taking up training with a vengeance again.<br><br>
I have a voucher for a business-class ticket to Japan that I won at a relay race that I probably should use before it expires. If I do use it, it probably would happen in April or early September.<br><br>
In other words, who knows at this point!

Interesting thought - does anyone know where I can find a triathlon calendar for Japan?<br><br>
I did look into Japanese marathons - only ones that work are Nagano in April and Hokkaido in September (Tokyo is lottery only a la NYC, and by the time the next one came around, my voucher would be expired.)

I was thinking the same thing! I wonder if anyone here knows of any. Or maybe Mr. Soul. His wife did a race in .... Japan?? Korea?? It was a half Ironman. Or maybe a full. Ah crap, I'm really not helping, am I???
