2015 Year in Review

Despite ending the year with a DNF, I actually feel pretty accomplished when I look back over my 2015 running.

Gear Highlights

  1. I found a hydration pack that I love.
  2. I found a backpack that I love for run commuting.
  3. I figured out how to love my Altras again.
  4. I added Skora to my shoe line up.
  5. I said goodbye to Garmin and hello to Suunto.

Run Highlights

  1. I ran in four different states.
  2. I finally marked running the perimeter of Manhattan off my to do list.
  3. I managed to finish a very difficult, hilly 50k.
  4. I successfully trained for and completed my first-ever 100k.

I could make a list just as long of things I wish I’d done differently, but I’ll file those away as I look at training this year and use this post to be positive. All together, 2015 wasn’t too shabby.
