I've put together my 2013 racing plans. Normal caveats of good health and future unpredictability apply, but below are the races I'd like to run, if all goes well.

Going to Costa Rica in Feb., so no racing

Spring Fever 5k Mar-23
Cherry Creek Sneak 5 mile Apr-28
Bolder Boulder 10K - Memorial Day
Mt. Evans Ascent June 15

Note the lack of ultras on the agenda in 2013. I'm generally available for pacing, crewing, and watching if anyone needs help, but I'm giving the Nathan Pack a year off as far as my own racing goes.
No ultras in 2013. I plan to run a few in 2014. Until then, the goal is to get fast (or, perhaps better said, less slow).
