Run the Year Motto:  Run, Crawl, Walk, Conquer, Dominate 2,016 miles in 2016


March 2016 update:  another HUGE month – marathoned all 4 weekends of March.  Ticker: 7 consecutive race weekends (February start).  FAAANNTASTIC challenge!  Building CONSISTENCY & ENDURANCE in 2016.

Race ReCap:  one ultra & 4 marathons – including my first DOUBLE CHALLENGE, 2 marathons over 2 days in 2 different states.  Highlight: Bataan Memorial Death March on White Sands Missile Range NM.

Next month’s focus: INTENSITY 

8 trail runs this year – BIG learning curve.  While increasing endurance (longer distance runs) AND switching road to trail, focus shifted from steady pace to survival (eating during a run, staying fit & uninjured).  Move back to road mid-April.  Speed work, INTENSITY, fearless DOWNHILL running.  Uphill I’ve got, I pull back Downhill.

Mileage ReCap:  Still on track, ended March at 500 miles (4 miles short of goal).

    Yahoo!!! so exciting to see you have your 50 state goal and how closely it’s coming for you!!!! That’s so exciting, and admirable that you have done the 50 states so quickly!!! When you coming to Canada?

    • I start running the provinces this June — Banff (Alberta) & Bay of Fundy (New Brunswick). Probably no more than one or 2 a year — flights to O’ Canada are pricier than here in the States. Hope to see ya next year in Toronto!
