2018. The most miles I’ve ran since 2015 (and I pretty much stopped running in October). 2116.33 Miles.
The most mountains I’ve hiked. Ever. 74 Peaks. 282.9 Mountain Miles.
The least amount of races since I started racing a ton in 2012.
9 races – and 274.5 race miles.
2018 – it’s been solid. But It’s time for a break.
I’ve never taken a solid chunk of time off. “Off” meaning I still run randomly – but I don’t feel like I need to squeeze that run in before work – or during work. It won’t do any good.
Instead I’m hitting Pursuit Performance 3-4 times a week. And running most on the weekends. And occasional short races. Not wearing a watch – cause it broke. And they are expensive. Not caring how far I go or how fast. Taking it easy — till…………
— 2019 —
This past June I crewed Ben Nephew in The Connecticut Ultra Traverse – And I fell in love with those trails.
So I registered to run in next year – 112 Miles starting May 31st.
The CUT112 – Is not a formal race. It’s free. But generous donations to Connecticut Forest and Parks are encouraged. The course starts at the border of Massachusetts and runs all the way down to the long island sound.
I’m looking forward to this. I’m looking forward to another month or so of rest and strength building – then get into some training.
Also in 2019 – My third Twist Branch 100k. Because I’m committed to run it every other year. Also because It takes a year to forget how hard it is.
