January Update

January 2014

Not a whole lot going on, so I will keep this one short.

January has been a pretty good month. The first four weeks of my 50 miler plan went better than expected. Long runs have been under 16 miles and pretty nice (I think I get back to 20 in a couple of weeks. I have also been defining some goals and objective for myself over the next couple of years. I have been told a couple of times to pick something that scares me and go for it so depending on how things go over the next year or two, I have something really big I would like to work on and I am not ready to let that out of the bag yet.

Gear wise, the only addition in January was a pair of Hoka One One Stinson Evo Tarmacs. I am still getting used to them but have put about 35 miles on them. Probably write a more formal review after a few more runs, but from what I have ran in them they feel great.

I was able to get in 200.2 miles (322.19 km) of running. Probably looking to hit between 50 and 55 miles per week in February. Race wise for February, I have Run for The Roses 5k.
