Running seriously again

Beginning the 2015 year with a commitment to run 2,015 miles for the coming year.

It’s been a very long time since I’ve been social in relation to my running.  No, I have not been blogging.  No, I have not been tweeting…much.  No, I have not been posting to my CrazyFloridian page on Facebook.  However, I never stopped running.  I simply didn’t have the time or desire to share as much as I have in the past.

All this being said, we are now into the year 2015.  It is a shiny new year, and I have made a shiny new commitment to run 2,015 miles in 2015.  This will end the past two years of maintenance running.  Here are the numbers from the past 6 years of running:

  • 2009 = 750 miles
  • 2010 = 1,701 miles
  • 2011 = 2,150 miles
  • 2012 = 1,208 miles
  • 2013 = 823 miles
  • 2014 = 859 miles

I know, right!  The past 2 years have not been very impressive.  In fact they sucked BIG time.  There are many reasons why the miles have dropped.  New job requiring a bunch (about half the year) of travel, busy building my reputation in professional communities, and more time demands by family.  Although I still ran more than most people, it was pretty terrible for an ultra-runner.  So 2015 is the year I will fix that.

I’m writing this post after being down one week due to sickness and a knee injury from skiing in Colorado while celebrating the new year, but am now forging ahead.  I’m actively back running, and will start ramping up my miles at a sane 10% per week.

Thank you for stopping by, and please feel free to chime in and we can do this together.
