Here are the races I’ll enter (or have already entered) in 2011.
- American Zofingen (May 15) – One of my all-time favorite races: a 5 mile run, 86 mile ride, another 15 mile run, and, oh, a few hills.
- Fairlee Triathlon (July 17) – First USAT sanctioned Oly distance tri of the year for me.
- Lake Dunmore Tri (August 7) – USAT Special Qualifier
- USAT Age Group National Championship (August 20)
I’ll probably add in a local sprint sometime in July as well.
I included American Zofingen because registering for it will force me to build a solid base. Well, that’s one reason, the other is because this is simply a fun, well run, and generally sick race (and therefor highly recommended). The others will be tuneup races for the USAT Championship. I don’t have a lot of experience at the Oly distance, so adding two practice races will give me the pacing info I need.
There’s a bit of a gap there in July, so I’ll need to find something to add.
