Moment #1

To end my top 10 moments on a new year and to have momentum going into 2017. My top moment is the STG Marathon.

This marathon was my so called "Fantasy Sport" PR. I trained all year for it and nailed some big workouts. About 4 weeks before the race I found myself really low on energy, I wasnt recovering from workouts, also couldnt complete workouts. So I talked to my running coach and we agreed that everything was going to be maintenance runs to try to get my energy back. About 1 week before the race I started feeling a little better with the hopes of a PR. Race went the best that I could've gone. Salvaged a 2 minute PR. But also feel like I left alot out on the road too. So this year the plan is to run what I know I can run in STG. This will take more miles and less racing to accomplish this goal. I'm more motivated than ever. Excited to seee what this year will bring.

Nice pounding of snow last night. Run was awesome, but roads were slick which made for some slow moving miles.

Ran with Taylor, Riley, Bret, Bryant, Moss, Jared and Thatcher.

PM

5.10 miles easy on the treadmill at home.

Easy run with Riley on the East bench of Layton. Morning was actually pretty nice. Chilly in some spots with the fog and open fields, but nice up and down run.

Bailed on my workout for the day and just went easy. My daughter kept me up all night with an ear infection so my energy levels were super low. Get back into a groove next week.
