2018 Running and Racing Review

Running mileage was 2471.

Goals accomplished (or not accomplished) for 2018:
I set a goal to do 60 weight workouts and completed 32. I completed 33 last year. I had some consistent months but my racing schedule interferes with my consistency.

I made some progress on decluttering upstairs but still not done.

I definitely succeeded in having more fun both at work and running.

Ran 1 marathon and 9 ultras this year, 1 marathon less and 5 ultras more than last year. I didn't feel drained like I did for part of last year which I blame on my previous job. I finished the year feeling good although it would probably have been better to end the ultra season in October after Backyard rather than December although winning 4 Fore 30 was a good way to end the year.
