Wow, 2015 already. How did that happen?
Quick wrap-up from 2014... I did the NYRR Ted Corbitt Classic 15k in December as planned, although walked a good portion of it. Heel/achilles felt okay for the race but sure burned like a @#!&%!%&!#% after I was done. I made the switch from Saucony Guides and Saucony Omni (both 8mm drop) to New Balance 860v5 which have a 12mm drop. That has helped with the heel/achilles issue, but it's still a problem off and on. Sigh.
On to 2015... I did the RunVermont First Run 5k on New Years Day (slow as molasses as usual), and have the NYRR Gridiron Classic 4M on Super Bowl Sunday in a few weeks. Beyond that, I'm hoping to VERY SLOWLY build my mileage and target a late fall half or 15k. Probably Ted Corbitt 15k again. Other focus is still to lose some weight, with a goal of before my birthday in late June.
