Run the Year Motto:  EVERY day’s a run day, 2017 miles in 2017


February 2017 update:  shortest month of the year, 2nd 200-mile month of 2017 – HUGE confidence builder!  Finished 3 more marathons.  On track for #100 in Ireland, including a marathon-lite, hike-heavy July & August.  Finding balance in 2017.



Not gonna kid ya, this year’s run goal has been tough – literally EVERY day of 2017 been a run day.  Pre-marathon, post-marathon, sick days & SNOW.  Found myself logging run miles an hour before skiing Vail last month.

the Positive?  RESULTS.  Lean, UP 4 lbs & STRONG.  Nicked finish time from each successive marathon this year.

In New Zealand ‘til March 19th — will be cutting new trails in 9 towns, on 2 islands.  Photo-blogging the ‘run watch’ to hold myself accountable.  Reward?  Gonna see more than your average tourist – each morning: new run, brand new area.

Last day in New Zealand?  Kirikiriroa Marathon in Hamilton.  Heck yeah!


Race ReCap:  3 marathons, 3 states.  Snow-trekked the Groundhog Day Marathon in Grand Rapids [Michigan], ran a [2nd Half] negative split in Pueblo [Colorado], then finished sub-4:30 on a hilly course in Texas – at Fort Worth’s Cowtown Marathon.

Streaks: 67 consecutive run days, 39th consecutive month marathoning

Mileage ReCap:  another 200+ mile month, ended February at 366 miles (30 miles ahead of goal)
