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


GOAL COMPLETE – & almost a month early.  Fulfilled last year’s challenge then 11 days into 2017, started my next 2,017 miles.  Post-chemo, post-quarterly checkups…just me & the open road/trail/mountain trek/suburbia sidewalk/treadmill.

26 marathons (including one ultra).  2 more before the year is done – Buckeye Marathon this Saturday (in Arizona) & a 50K trail run in rural Indiana (yep, trail in December).  My LIFE addiction.

Biggest highlights: 2-week/EVERY day RUN adventure in New Zealand & of course, Marathon #100 in Ireland.



104 marathons (including 4 ultras)

  • 97 US, 4 Canada, 1 Ireland, 1 New Zealand, 1 Russia
  • All 50 States, 21 States x2 (gonna circle the US again by 2019 year-end)
  • 3 continents (depending where you place NZ) – marathoning all 7 by mid-2020 (including Antarctica)
  • Streak: 49 consecutive months


Not gonna ‘Run the Year’ in 2018…but there’ll be challenges ahead.

Bighorn 2018.
