2015 in Review

With a half marathon tomorrow morning, I went to the track this morning and ran laps.  This was my 2,265th consecutive day of running.  Earlier this year, I received a friendly challenge from a couple of runners from Houston to see who could run the most races in 2015.  They have not reported in, but I am confident that I won the challenge with 88 races.  They include 1-25K, 13-half marathons, 13-10-milers, 1-11K, 4-10K's, 2-5-milers, 1-4.4-miler, 1-4.3-miler and 52-5K's.  I ran races in 32 different cities.  It is a good thing that gas is relatively cheap.  That gives me a total of 851 races since I started racing in 1983.  Even though I am getting slow, I am thankful that at age 74 that I am healthy enough to get out and keep moving.  Happy New Year.

Great stats, Ken..you are amazing.. I had a good year as well though I have had the last tow weeks off due to back issues...but my totala are 890 miles running, 75 + miles swimming, and a little over 7100 mile biking. I think we are both blessed and hope 2016 is a blessed year for you and your family.

Congrats on your accomplishments this year, Marvin. We are so fortunate to be able to stay active at our age. Hope you and your family have a great year. Pray for Jody.
