2013 Reflection

Postby Chainsaw Baby » Tue Dec 17, 2013 2:18 pm

Hey all. Low season in Canada... What event(s) had the greatest impact on your running this year?

It might be a race or an epic training run, but let's hear about the challenges as well (how to handle these is good to know). For me:

Good: Return to long distance running, post surgery.
Bad: Misplaced a volunteer during the Creemore Copper Kettle Dash. 11 runners went off course!
It's a hill. Get over it!

Good: 4th place finish at Run4RKids
Bad: Injury begining of March at Post Oak Challenge in Tulsa OK that lasted until Oct (same time I stopped running long for the year). I guess you just shouldn't run through an injury.

Bad: did not run any ultras and had a dfl in one race.

Good: back on track for 2014. Already registered for two and contemplating a third.

Good- Skyway Condura Marathon in Manila. It started at midnight. All my friends were going to sleep were going to sleep I almost bailed on this one.
Bad- I still haven't run an ultra :(
If you have to ask me why I Run, You probably wouldn't understand!
