Boston Marathon Registration, My Next Race, and More RP News!

Hi all!  I know I’ve been out of it for the past several weeks on this blog, but I’ve been moving to Boulder, starting a new job, buying a house, doing all kinds of home improvement and decorating activities, etc. etc.  I haven’t been running a ton, but I did do the classic Boulder Skyline Traverse a few weekends ago (mostly hiking, admittedly!), swept a portion of the Never Summer 100K, and have done some cool hiking in the Indian Peaks Wilderness.  Photos and other updates available on Instagram.  Now that I’m fairly settled in Boulder, I’m finally getting focused back on races!  MOST IMPORTANTLY…

To recap, here are a few facts about 2016…

img_2955

Each December, I like to sit down and write out my goals for the coming year.  Last year I set several goals, outlined here.  I hit many of them, including my goal to run four marathons in 2016 (I did six), go camping (check!), hike and run trails (I did that a bunch), read Move Your DNA (done), and run a marathon under 3:45 (woohoo!).  A few others, not so much.

But I have only one goal for 2017:  B. Q.
