Return, Rest

I'm back from my trip to Taiwan and Hong Kong, and will be posting details of our Trailwalker 100k and a photo gallery in the next day or two. It was an incredible trip, with so many vivid memories floating through my brain right now it is hard to capture it all in my still-very-tired state.

After three exhausting races in the past four months, I'm enjoying a few solid days of rest and then will be starting to think about what races I want to do next year. Generally I'm looking forward to some snowshoe races this winter, and definitely a 50 miler (or possibly two) next year, along with some 50k's and who knows, maybe even the odd road race to try to work on some leg speed a bit. It's fun to think of the possibilities. Mostly I just want to get in some consistent training, build the volume, and resume the workouts where I left off two weeks ago.

From this on the MacLehose Trail, Hong Kong.....

.... to this my first day back to work.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our U.S. friends.

Welcome home. Great 4 months of races indeed. 2012 is going to be a great year!

Fun to start planning what's next. I hear the Yukon is nice in February!

Welcome back Sara I look forward to hearing more about your trip and seeing your pics. Rest.
February Yukon, Derrick I think it will be balmy :) B

Yes, I keep hearing about this Yukon place and it does greatly appeal. I figure the chances of you going again next winter are about 99.9%, so I might let you scout it out for us this time and I'll start saving my pennies for 2013. :) If (okay when) you do the crazy-ass 350 or 450 or whatever it is, I WILL HAVE TO be there, for my own sanity. Maybe I'll pull a JD and do the winter 100 then as my first.

Welcome home. Can't wait for the gallery and the gritty details.

I am hoping to be back in the Yukon in 2014 for the 100, if you are marking dates on a Calendar. 2013 is Kim's 50th - Jan31st and we will be some place warmer *cough*Maldives*cough*

Thanks, Keith. Glad you guys had fun in Lake Placid while I was away.
