Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

My 2010

with one comment

Here it is, the last day of the year. About to go run.

Thoughts on this year:

  • Lost my dog, Pygmy, in February. He had been in my life for 18 years. Sad time. Also lost a few relatives. Deaths can come so suddenly.
  • Got married in April. Happy time.
  • Delighted to keep the 2009 momentum going. Proud to survive running through very warm months (Mar-June). Seems like Bangkok is getting hotter every year.
  • Got a cold twice. Not too bad.
  • Quit coffee in October.
  • New shoes: Bought New Balance MT100 in July and lost them somehow in December. Logged under 200 miles on them. Got to get me a new pair. Also got Nike Vapor Quick 2 and Adidad Adizero Boston. Satisfied with all of them.
  • Retired two pairs of shoes: Asics Nimbus 8 and New Balance MR800MF. Both went over 1,000 miles.
  • Just two 10K races. Don Bosco in February and EGAT in September. Achieved a new personal record on the first one.
  • Longest run this year: 20 miles. Just once.
  • Highest mileage: December. Lowest: May.
  • Goals for 2011: Personal bests in marathon and half marathon. More long runs. Joined more races. Have more fun with running and other aspects of life!
