Since then, I have been laid off from Oracle, did a stint in the oil field and have had stable employment at CDOT since 2019. I have done the D'Evelyn dash 2019, 2020, and 2021. I also did a mountain bike race in 2019.
The Covid 19 pandemic royally screwed up racing in 2020 and 2021, with a slow return to normal around July of 2021. With the pandemic at more of an endemic state, it feels like a good time to throw my hat back in the ring.
July 10 - Stonehouse Lakewood 2 mile run (RMRR)
July 23 - Crooked Gravel (30 mile short course; Winter Park)
July 31 - Chatfield Classic - Mountain Swim Series (1 mile)
August 27 - D'Evelyn Dash (5K)
September 10 - Littlefoot Sprint Triathlon (0.75-15-5k Bear Creek Lake Park)
October 8 - Stone House double Triple-Cross trail 8.6M (CMRA)
Aside from the Crooked Gravel, these are all very local events with a really nice atmosphere. I would get a chance to hang with the RMRR and the CMRA again. I would also get back into multisport racing.
All of these could potentially be done with minimal training. However, I would ideally be swimming, riding and running at least once a week.
Swimming - Grant Ranch May 21 - September 11 - Tuesday/Thursday 6 am - 7:30 am; Saturday/Sunday 7 am - 9:30 am or Bear Creek Lake or Mountain Swim Series. I would primarily be training at Carmody Rec Center.
Riding - Bear Creek Lake Trail System
Running - Harriman Park, D'Evelyn Track, Bear Creek Lake Trail System or anywhere else
I got a slight kick of motivation with Maddy coming to town and talking about the aquathon and aquabike national championships. She has ambitions to make it to worlds in Spain. I have no such delusions of grandeur. However, aside from the Crossfit Open, I have not had a target event to focus my training.
