Ed, nice to see you set a schedule. Now, it's time to buckle down and get ready for it.
As for me, I already did that 5K a couple weeks ago. I'm eyeing the Deer Run on April 28th, undecided between the 10K and 5K but leaning toward the 10. I might take May off from racing and consider the West Bend race you have your eye on and Walleye Run 6 days later in Fond du Lac.
After that, I'm not so sure. I like Fish Day but it kind of has a been there, done that feel to it for me now. There's a 10K in Cedar Grove about a week later that I haven't done in a few years. Hank Aaron is another one I really like and I feel like I have some unfinished business there but it also has a little of a been there, done that feel to it.
I was thinking of the Eisenbahn half this year but I see they moved the date to June 10th instead of the late August timeframe it used to be. That puts it a week after that 5K in West Bend and the day after Walleye Run, which pretty much rules it out.
As for the fall, it might be my usual schedule: Stout alumni meet, Al's Run, then the small 5K to close out the year.
I would like to do something different this year, though. I have my eye on the track a bit. Maybe Badger State Games, though I've heard the competition there is not always all one would hope for in terms of numbers or paces. The USATF masters (30+) T&F Championship is in Illinois, not too far from my cousin's home, though. That might be an interesting way to mix things up.
