I've just spent hours reading what people did last year, many of them writing for the first time in a year. I'll be brief.
I ran 2063 miles in 2011. Here's some frame of reference:
2011: 2000 miles
Zach Bitter in 2011: 5700.
(I'm not bitter, I'm quick.)
I didn't finish an ultra last year, only ran over the marathon distance in training once or twice, did one 25K and one 10 Mile trail race. I ran well from January to March, then got ill and didn't recover until October, when I started ramping up again. Still, it's better than last year... last year I was really sick.
On to 2012, the year of the new age class.
[Added: and if anyone cares, I'm starting the year 9 lbs. lighter than last year, with a waist 2 inches smaller... but I'm learning to make molded chocolates, so that might change soon.]
