I made a good decision in buying myself a violin last September.

It’s that time of year when you set new goals, start big-ass projects that span the three-six-five cycle.

In 2016 I had this big goal of rereading 25 books.

Those First Thousand Klicks of the Year: 2016 Edition

I can always sorta gauge how well my training year is going by when I reach that 1000 klick mark on my annual tally. In 2013, when I was training for (and quickly approaching the date of) my first marathon, I hit that milestone in early August. Otherwise, it’s been a lot later in the year:

  • 2012 – October 30
  • 2013 – August 6
  • 2014 – October 20
  • 2015 – September 26 (During a race so I didn’t write about it.)
  • 2016 – August 13

I crossed that mark once again on Saturday morning, a few minutes into a 15 klick morning run. Again, early in August, with a few months of training left before my November marathon. That fills in a bit of a confidence gap I’ve been feeling. Really. Somehow.

It sounded like a great idea. But I’ve been slogging.

You can't go back until you've actually put your hand on it.

It’s new years. Be SMART. Share, enjoy, and go set some goals.

An ultramarathon. I'm not ready to try one... but I once said I'd never do a full marathon either.

Big things with little daily efforts. They all add up.

2012 = Smashed

It’s that time of year as I near my annual running goal distance when I can start comparing to previous year’s efforts. Like today. Today, after a seven klick Saturday run I smashed through my 2012 effort. In 2012, after a long year of slogging and training and whatever, and after my last run of that year on December 30th, I reported a total of 1210 klicks plus change. As of this morning, with a month and a half left to go in the year: 1211 klicks and change. One record crushed, putting this year currently in third place for total distance. Unless I run two marathons per week for the rest of the year, I’m not going to get into first, but I am trying for second…
