2015 in Review

Remember that "go camping for a month this summer without losing your job" thing?

Here's how much I camped in 2015. "Camping" includes car camping in the truck, honest-to-goodness backpacking, or staying up all night long running.

March: 2 (4MPH Challenge)
April: 2 (Zion 100)
May: 7 (MeOw, Ventana, American River, Emigrant)
June: 2 (Solstice 24, Carson-Iceberg)
July: 7 (El Dorado, Emigrant, Tushar 93K)
August: 3 (Desolation, Sierra NF)
September: 11 (Tahoe 200, IMTUF, Bear)
October: 2 (Florida)
December: 4 (Nevada)

40 days by my count. Not too shabby.

Also, Strava says I ran 2,485 miles (with 330K feet of climbing) over 251 runs. That's definitely the most running I've done, but not the most miles on foot (2007 CDT yo-yo). So pretty good. I'm not sure how I feel about the Barkley waitlist, but I might as well do a shit-ton of super steep training, so I'm back on the horse.

I should probably also make some goals about research, using my phone less, reading real books, and learning to play the banjo. We'll see.
