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.
