2018 Running Summaries

2018 is about to be over. Another and slow year goes by, but still I am very happy with the year performance. With only one PR this year, the Derby 50k, I was able to improve my 50K mark for over 20 minutes compared to last year. I was able to volunteer and pace two events this year the Tobacco Road Marathon and the Umstead Half, both of them really good experience and a lot of fun. I was also very fortunate to run the NYC Marathon, although not necessary one of my best performance for a marathon, it was still an outstanding experience and was able to crossed it out my list of must events.

In a nutshell,

  1. Another year with over 2300 miles covered.
  2. Injury free year – feel very blessed
  3. Paced couple events this year.
  4. Daily Streak Challenge 364 consecutive days completed.
  5. Continued with the previous yearly challenge of running 13.1 distance at least once a week. Over 170 weeks and going.
  6. Completed one of the big Marathons events finishing 2018 NYC Marathon.
  7. Finished another official Ultra Marathon – Derby 50k – with a new PR – Great experience.

I am very grateful that 2018 was another great running year. Many miles with many good friends. I am very grateful for all the support that I received from family, peers, the medical community, FB friends, running groups and running clubs. They all provided the energy, advise and encouragement to continue to run and continue to improve in my personal life.

Once again I want to say thanks to my friends and family that in one way or another provided their support and patience while I continue with my insane running!

Happy New 2019!
