...and we're back!

Based on the news Deb and I got yesterday that we are back on the Wasatch Speedgoat Mountain Racing Team roster, I am bringing this blog back to life...for the team and sponsors, of which aren't nailed down yet, other than Backcountry.com, which is a sure thing. I'll update the sidebar when these get nailed down.

Back in the goat skin for 2012
This is at Salida, Steve mid race and Deb winning her AG

The posts I publish will be mainly centered around the races we run. Deb's about to have some shoulder surgery, which will take her out for a little bit, but not for long. She should be ready for these.
As of now the tentative schedule is:

1. Salida Marathon - March.
2. Collegiate Peaks 50 mile - April
3. Jemez 50 - May (Deb's running and I am an aid station captain)
4. San Juan Solstice 50 mile - June (Hardcore final long run for Hardrock)
5. Hardrock 100 - July (This is not tentative and we've decided to run this together)
6. Speedgoat 50K - July (depends on if we can walk after Hardrock)
7. Wasatch 100- September (Deb, depending on lottery)
7. Bear 100 - September (Steve, and Deb if she doesn't get into Wasatch)

That's it for now and will probably be it, depending on which ones we get into...after all I am now 60 and Deb will be 58 in August! Sprinkled in there here and there are the many NM MTNRNR trail series, which we will either RD or run as training.

Glad to be back and here's wishing everyone out there a fantastic 2012 and that you get into the races you want to get in!
