It’s 2012! Let’s see, how did 2011 go?
Swam 24 miles.
Biked over 2068 miles.
Ran 1632 miles.
Hours spent working out 451.
I only completed 7 events this year. Last year I had that doubled. However the events were bigger this year, focusing more on quality distance. I did two 50 milers. One 100k. A half iron and a full iron. I ran my age on my birthday and spent NYE running a 50k. It was about a good a year as I could have hoped for, working two jobs and having little to no time. I even managed to place in a couple of my events. And one of the greatest moments of the year was winning the Dances with Dirt 50 mile run. I exceeded my goals for the year and it was magical.
The only thing I’m officially signed up for at this point is the Leadville 100. I plan to do at least two 100 mile runs this year. With a couple of 50k’s, 50 milers and 100k’s thrown in there. I hope to do my first ultra cycling event. I hope to be healthier. I hope to drink more. I hope to say yes more. I hope to make new friends. I hope to inspire. I hope to live my life w/ the volume turned all the way up. I hope to burn the candle from both ends. I hope to run mountains. I hope to become a superhero. I hope to strip my life down to the bare essentials. I hope to not compromise myself or my goals for anyone else. I hope for a lot. So here’s to hoping. I hope…
