Turning the page on 2015 which was a down year for my running. Only had 500-some miles, breaking a 4-year streak of 1,000+ miles. Only raced three times, missing the final two races in the Salomon Autumn Trail Series–the only races I’ve missed in the 5 or 6 years of the series. I had some other priorities in 2015–I changed jobs, started grad school, sold & bought homes, have a 1-year-old, and had a blood clot that stuck me in the hospital twice and required the installation of a stent.
So I choose not to emphasize my running as much in 2015.
Some of those priorities from 2015 should be less of a factor in 2016 so I’m hoping to increase my running this year. I’m registered for the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon in June and am looking for some other filler races. I’m not setting any crazy goals for this year, just run 1,000+ miles, lose 7-8 pounds, and stay injury-free.
Happy New Year to everyone, hope 2016 is great for you.
