So everyone else is all like, here’s my race report from last weekend, and here I am, crap, I still haven’t finished my Boston race report!?!! It’s been half written for weeks, so here goes! I’m not going to do my typical race report with splits, and details like that. I had no real pace/time goals, so the splits don’t matter.

I realized though, that there might be as much, or more value in sharing this spot in the middle, where I’m waiting for the after to come.
I think there are a lot of people who are happily giving 2016 a big ole shove out the door this weekend. While I am saddened by all the celebrity deaths, especially Carrie Fisher this week, personally, I had a really good year, and want to celebrate it. So here goes, I’ve got

A year ago, Lori and I ran the Powderface Half Marathon, it was one of the hardest trail races we had run thus far. Fast forward a year, and a lot has changed. We’ve run an ultra, a trail marathon, and countless training runs all over this general area.
