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.
