I can't believe how cold it got down here so fast this year. I'm sure it will warm back up but this morning it was 41 outside my house... That is January temps.
I posted this on the discussion board but I'll also plug it here. I've decided to do the Utah Grand Slam next year. This would include running the Ogden, Des News, Park City, and STG Marathons. With the Top of Utah marathon being my alternate. I know this sounds like a lot and my plans had been to kind of kick back a little, but thats exactly what I plan on doing. Instead of running 100+ mile weeks all year in 2009 I'll most likely be doing 75-85 mpw with 60 mpw being the minimum. I think I can maintain some pretty good fitness and have a good shot a winning the Grand Slam and at the same time kind of relax during my weekly/monthly training. I'll have to race the marathons a little more cautious than in years past, but I should be able to run some pretty good races nonetheless.
So here we go. I swore off Ogden last year forever but I guess I'll be back. I still may go do another marathon in December or January but I wont know for sure for a few more weeks.
