Trail Racing in the Bay Area: January 2014

Trail running kicks ass!
Happy New Year!!! I've been thinking about New Year resolutions and goals for 2014. This year I hope to bring my running back up to where it was in late 2012 and early 2013. I was running quite a bit more mileage week to week and training with an intensity that  could not be kept up with. Now that life has begun to calm down a bit, I think I can get back at it with some goal oriented training.
The approaching new year starts off with some great trail runs to choose from to get started on those goals. Below is a list of the upcoming races in January of 2014, including a few road events that are specifically targeted at celebrating the New Year. If you are like the majority of people out there with health and fitness goals for 2014 then start your New Year off with a step in the right direction. Pick a race, sign up and start training. With a race on your calendar and all of the hope of a New Year in your heart you will start the year with a bang that will likely carry you a lot farther towards your goals than otherwise. I'll see you out there!!!
