That would be 16 ultras, including five 100-milers, with three Hardrock qualifiers in three weeks, and three insane off-trail bushwhacking events, plus a couple orienteering events. I've never done more than 8 ultras in a year before, but I am unlikely to get picked in all the lotteries. I'm not 100% sure about all these, but I'm quite excited about many. I will be teaching a course at USF on Mondays Spring Semester, and an 8-week summer course at Cal from late June to mid-August, so that rules out trying Barkley or trying for too many summer races, but I didn't get into Hardrock or Western States anyway. I also doubt I can afford to do all these, but thankfully the majority of them are within a 3-hour drive.
Also, running friends, are you on Strava? I have avoided it until now, because of the whole Stravasshole thing, but I automatically linked my Garmin account to it a few weeks ago, and then a good hiking friend joined, and I found a handful of friends, and I'm finding it quite motivational to get an e-mail every morning saying how much further than me you all ran. So join!
UPDATE: Was picked in the Way Too Cool lottery, forgot to put in for the Lake Sonoma lottery, and added Tamalpa Headlands 50k.
