2015 Running Review

2015 was an even better running year for me than last year.  I trained for my 2nd marathon, ran a couple new races and hit an all time high for miles!  The insoles I've been wearing for almost 2 years have worked wonders for me.  I've been pain/injury-free through all my training and races (knock on wood), long live Spenco Earthbound insoles!!

Also for 2015 I was a beef tip and ran 4 races under Team Beef.  I passed all requirements by the end of the year to become a full member for 2016, now I will get reimbursed for races!

My friend base has grown thanks to running.  Our group is larger than ever and I truly appreciate all my running buddies/friends.  Many of us also did boot camp together for 3 months in the summer, which really helped strengthen our core for all these long races.

Total miles run: 1108, beating last years total by 124 miles.

Races:
1/11 - Rogue Half Marathon - 13.1.  1:57:03 (8:56 pace)
1/25 - 3M - 13.1.  New PR!!  1:55:23 (8:48 pace)
2/21 - Frozen Booty 5 & 10K, local Round Rock fun run, ran both.
