You might say it's been a bit of a whirlwind week in terms of my 2012 racing plans. First, the updated schedule (bold ones are new since last time, starred ones are paid for):

*10/9/11 Tyler Rose Marathon
*10/23/11 13.1 Dallas
*11/13/11 Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio Marathon
12/3/11 Run Like The Wind 24-Hour, Austin TX

1/29/12 Miracle Match Marathon, Waco TX
*2/10/12 Rouge-Orleans (126.2 miles), Baton Rouge to New Orleans
3/17/12 Dash Down Greenville (5K), Dallas
*4/16/12 Boston Marathon

7/4/12 Liberty 10K, The Colony TX
7/15/12 El Scorcho 50K, Fort Worth TX
8/4/12 Headlands Hundred, Sausalito CA
9/3/12 Labor Day 15K, Dallas
9/15/12 Tour des Fleurs 20K, Dallas
9/23/12 Heels & Hills & Him HM, Irving TX
10/6/12 Heartland 100, Cassoday KS
10/21/12 Waterworks 25K, Dallas
11/4/12 DRC Half, Dallas
11/18/12 Big D 30K
12/2/12 Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon
12/15/12 Jog'r Egg Nog'r 15K, Dallas

I pondered the Cajun Coyote 100 in place of Run Like the Wind but I think I'll stay in Texas that weekend. Miracle Match will probably happen unless I find a suitable ultra that weekend or the one before. DDG is a lock.

The family trip to California we'd planned for August will now be in April, obviously. I probably won't mind losing the August 100 and gaining something of an offseason. After this ridiculous summer I'll appreciate stepping back to 25- or 30-mile weeks for a bit when it's 100 every day (and 83 every night).

I'm not convinced the Vegas trip is going to happen given the other three fly-outs next year (Boston, Big Sur, OD100). I may well do Cajun Coyote then instead.
