2017 Plans and Goals

If you haven’t figured it out by now I am always planning for the next race. Now that 2016 is done,  2017 planning is pretty much complete (I don’t waste much time) – for the first 2/3 of the year at least.

Here is the plan as of now:

February 12th, 2017 The Rock Cobbler 4.0 – 80 to 100 mile gravel ride, route to be determined. I am terrified. This is the first race I have ever signed up for where there is a real possibility I may not finish. I need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. This is the perfect race for that!

March 5th, 2017 The Desert Triathlon Olympic Distance La Quinta, CA- I have done this race many times so I am excited to have another go at it. This year I need to race stronger on the bike so this will be a chance to really try to push hard on the bike for the entire race.

April 1st, 2017 The Great Race of Agoura – I am doing the team marathon with my running partner Sarah . She will run the trail half and I will run the road half. Our combined time will be our marathon time.

April 17th, 2017 The Boston Marathon – shooting for 3:30 or faster! I am super excited for this!!

May 13th, 2017 Ironman Santa Rosa 70.3 – Once again the goal will be to push as hard on the bike as I possibly can. I want to push so hard that I actually blow up at some point during this race.

September 10th, 2017 Ironman Wisconsin – I am saying it now. I want to qualify for Kona. I know that isn’t completely under my control but I will do everything I can to make this happen.

After this I am sure I will do a fall marathon and enjoy some cross racing as well. But this is enough for now!


  1. Way to step out of your comfort zone with the gravel ride!! That too would scare me, which means it is probably something I should do more of…eek!!
    I’m so excited to support you in T1 + T2 at IMWI!! 2017 is going to be amazing!! I can’t wait!!
