By this time most years there are a handful of calendar events scheduled up with races or adventures, already planned or not. This year, my calendar is shockingly empty. It’s turned out to be a welcome feeling—a blank slate. No multi-day bike rides, no triathlons, no epic days that will require months of training in preperation.

We’re going to book things at some point, but other than a mental goal to run the Seattle Marathon over Thanksgiving, I got nothin’.

It will be interesting to see what we end up doing and how that differs from a typical year.
