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


October 2016 update: Most consistent training & greatest # of miles logged all year – 222 miles total.  After a disappointing DNF in Boulder, added 3 FINISHES to my marathon tally…including two last-minute race additions in Fort Collins & Nebraska.


2 month focus (November & December): FINISH STRONG

4 races to go, 2 each month – including an early December trail marathon in Death Valley Nat’l Park.


Race ReCap:  another 3 marathon month – one in mountains (Cache la Poudre Canyon), one on the Plains (Oregon Trail Run of Nebraska) & one by the ocean (Ocean State Marathon in Narragansett RI).

Mileage ReCap:  Back on track again, ended October at 1,673 miles (only 7 miles short of goal).



Run the Year – November Newsletter


Why is it so easy to focus on our short comings and failures, yet so difficult to step back and appreciate our strengths and accomplishments?


It may be human nature to be self critical, but November is the month to give thanks. November is the month to focus on everything we have instead of what we are missing.


This month give yourself a break from the negative voices in your head and instead focus on the positive. Rather than focus on how far you have to go, celebrate how far you have come. Take a moment each day to be thankful that you have the ability to get in miles, to move forward…  You have done some amazing things this year and traveled a lot of miles. Take a moment to be proud and thankful for every one!
