Aims for next year

What does the year a head hold for me, with that i mean what is my aims for next year. One thing for certain is that it i will be running long distances. What races am not sure yet, not really seen any that float my boat.  I feel i need to try the twenty four again, this time in a cold place so no chances of getting heat stroke again! I have unfinished business, and really want to run a hundred miles. I don't know if that is wishful thinking but you have to have a target.
The chance to run for Scotland again would be nice in the 100km in Wales, where i ran my first ever ultra and first ever 100km. Selection will be hard but if i get picked i get picked. If not i think i will probably run the race any way, it would be strange not to run at least one 100km in a year. 
What ever races i chose i know i had better get the head down and start putting in the miles in.

I like how people always say it is so easy to fit in a run, you should always make the time  But sometimes life becomes so busy so out of control that running is the last thing you want to do. You could say my home life is like that now.
Running is something thing i have always done, it's there when i need to take out my aggression as much as it's there when life's good and am happy. The thing i find with running is that if i have a problem most times after i have ran i have sorted out the problem and know what am going to do. This time running wont take me to a place to escape or find an answer.
Running keeps reminding me of the horrible fact what is happening to my dad and how i cann't do anything to help him.
Running is about the only normal thing in my life right now, the only chance i can be sad and deal with what is happening.
