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


June 2016 update:  COMEBACK month x2!  Second month of consistent training, multiple day run streaks & 3 more marathons – including my first 2 Canadian provinces (five-year goal to run all 10).

Positives?  Over the past 2 months, buckled down & caught up a 71 mile deficient (April injury fail).


2 month focus (July & August): ENDURANCE

Never been a summer runner – completing my miles, just getting it done in July & August will be a personal victory.


Race ReCap:  3 marathons – 2 at altitude (Steamboat & Banff), 2 in Canada (Alberta & New Brunswick) – including my first in kilometers (had never previously seen a ‘40’ marathon marker).  Highlight: BANFF.  Bucket list hike destination – Lake Louise, WOW!

Mileage ReCap:  HUGE – 2nd straight month, 200+ miles; ended June at 1,008 miles (half-way thru 2016).

  • 31st consecutive month marathoning.  Streak started with my second 26.2, December 2013 in Tucson.



Run the Year – July Newsletter

Hey 2016ers. Did you know this challenge is supposed to be difficult??


If this challenge were easy it would not hold the same appeal. Taking on a challenge where there is a real possibility of failure is exciting and terrifying and nerve-wracking. The desire to face our own limitations, to overcome obstacles, and finally accomplish what we could not manage previously, is what makes a challenge like this so enticing. That’s what makes this challenge, and you, special.


No matter where you are on your journey, commit to going extra hard this month. Commit to getting in more miles in the next 31 days that you have all year. Embrace the difficulty of the task you have chosen and know that the more obstacles you have to face, the greater the feeling of personal satisfaction and fulfillment you get from each milestone. Keep rocking the miles!
