The Next Thing

I want to do this race! Fresh off the ultra list, posted by Bram van der Bijl: Raid Aventura

500km, from Montpellier France to Valencia Spain. Hugging the coast you go through Barcelona. I bet it's awesome. Never been in France or Spain, although I am planning to spend a week in Barcelona for my birthday. Anyone with advice on the running scene in Barcelona, please lemme know.

Two things though; expense and timing. I'm already over my budget for vacations this year and the race is in the beginning of June. I plan on running Western States again and if I get in that's at the end of June. Anyway if by December the race isn't filled I will forego my annual family visit to Orlando, Florida and seriously think about entering the race - 800 Euros. If that happens I will spend winter and spring saving up for the trip and I will most likely forego Wildflower Half-Ironman in April. I will put my name in for the Western States lottery anyway.

Dream Scenario. I make it to both races.
Good Scenario. I make one.
Bummer Scenario. I make neither.

But then again this is Northern California...the hills of Marin will always do, for me anyway.
