  1. We always think of the coming year with what we need to do more of, get better at, etc. Aren't we just telling ourselves we didn't do life well enough this year? We weren't successful enough this year? Think about what you did this past year. You ran, maybe you did some strength work, maybe you went to yoga, maybe you learned to meditate. You juggled the needs of your job, kids, school, parents, loved ones, neighbors, etc. You did enough. You are enough. Think about the coming year differently. What did you really enjoy that you want to do more of in 2020? What were you successful

  2. still hurts. But I think it's getting better. My strategy of "To hell with it, I'm running through it" seems to be working. Since six weeks off didn't help at all, I have been running every other day since Dec 1 and I'm seeing the fitness start to come back. The foot pain, (below the ankle, above the arch) is pretty minor at the beginning. It gets a little worse after about 3 miles, but it's bearable. On a 1-10 pain scale, it was about a five two weeks ago, and now it's a 4, maybe a 3 during some of the run. I think it slows me a bit too, as it hurts more if I try to push a little, so I b

  3. You the man, Tim. So many miles. So much mud. And all that strength work you didn't mention. Such determination. By the way, I love that lap counting system.

  4. Love hearing all the trails you enjoyed! Snowshoeing really is an incredible cardio workout in the winter when snow gets deep.

  5. Nice! I am pretty sure that 99% of running injuries can be traced back to weak glutes...

  7. DNFs are really tough pills to swallow, but I'm glad you have been able to find some silver linings. Here's to putting 2019 behind us, letting the life-changing moments be a part of us, and kicking ass on the roads in 2020.

  8. Sorry CIM turned out that way. I'm sure your daughter was happy to have you there. She looks so happy at the finish.

  9. Headed out to Idaho again. Although I hope it won't be much of an adventure. Driving across Wyoming and Nebraska in December can be so nasty. Good news is that so far the forecast is for clear skies. After three years, T-Rex will be changing apartment complexes, so we have to move all her stuff into an alternate storage site until April. Fortunately, I have two brothers who live in the neighborhood. Free truck and free storage. We spent most of last week getting her ready for finals. Reviewing. Quizing. Validating. Encouraging. Talking her down from the edge of the cliff. "I'm going

  10. Total miles: 27.39Races: 1Minutes meditated: 25Coming of a shitty October, I honestly felt a little lost in November. I was (and still am) struggling with the loss of our pregnancy. Running just didn't feel like a priority, and so I didn't run much. I wish I could say I did a lot better with yoga and meditation, but I honestly wasn't great about that either. In retrospect, I was slowly creeping into depression, just going through the motions. There were bright spots, like watching my sister perform in Dracula with her community theater group and seeing the beautiful Mississippi in her new home
