Another great year in the bag. I didn't have the best race results but I never felt like I was over training or injured. If anything, I was under trained for race specific conditions. My best race all year was the Foothills Frenzy 50k on October 3rd with a time 5:39. It was my fastest time by five minutes and my fifth time doing the race. The course was a bit shorter than previous years so it wasn't quite a PR but I'll take it. The best part about it was the fact that I ran the Bear 100 seven days before this and had a pretty solid day finishing in 28:55. I went into the Frenzy (like I do every year) crossing my fingers for a good day and taking what the day gives me since I have usually just run a 100 miler in the previous weeks. It kind of made me wonder what I could do in a 50k if I was rested and tapered! I bet this year, minus Bear, I could have shaved 20+ minutes off.
Time to come up with some new goals for 2016!
