2010 marks the start of a new decade and many new changes in my life. First, Megan and I moved to Gunnison and finally obtained our goal of getting off the Front Range! Second, after returning from our extended honeymoon in NZ I acquired the injury bug upon my return to running. It has been a frustrating opening to 2010 to say the least. Achilles tendonitis has reared its ugly head; I managed to eek out 87 miles for January with close to 20 days of no running whatsoever. My goal is to begin the racing season healthy at the Fruita 50M. Since I began running ultras in 2006 this has been the first significant hiccup in my training. I feel blessed that this is the "worst" I've dealt with. It is ironic though that this injury came about after my 6 week break from running and not during a high volume training period...se la vi... Third, I started a running blog. So here's to Doug N, Bryan G, and everyone else who I told that I would never start blogging...this is dedicated to you!
