Last run of the year, just 6.07 miles and ended the year at 1251 miles. A new record yes, but short of my goal. I lost about 200 miles this year to injuries with my IT band and various nerves. If I ran in a straight line from my house per the map in any direction, I'd hit the edge of the circle.
All I/we can do is keep going, which I plan to do. 2021 is mapped out and I know the weather is a struggle this time of year. But in the struggle is where true art thrives. Like so many others out there, 2020 was just tough. I lost my job in September, and then in November I lost my father... he was 73.
But I'm optimistic about 2021, the other choice is to live in a state of depression, and I can't do that. Next marathon is in April in Nevada, and that's my next chance to BQ for 2022... all chips in on that.
