My year of running 2014

What a year this has been!
Honestly, I'll be glad to get 2014 behind me. It's been a bad year for my personal life, my weight and with my running.
I'm ready for a brand new year and some changes!

I've ran 12 races this year.
1 full marathon
3 half marathons
6 5 k's
1 10 miler
1 33 miler (that was my 100 mile attempt, but with bronchitis and a sinus infection, I couldn't breathe, and wasn't able to go any farther.)

My mileage for the year was 662. That sounds really low, but I was out for a couple months with a torn tendon. And because of that I had to cancel THREE full marathons I had planned for this fall.
See what I mean, just a bad year!

 But it's not all bad. I have some amazing friends who have stuck with me and been there with me through it all. What more could I ask for.
 As for 2015, there is something pretty huge that I want to do. I'm not even putting it into words yet because I think it might be a little too crazy, even for me.
 But I love crazy, so we shall see.

Happy New Year, my friends!!



  1. Happy New Year! Crazy is exciting! Can't wait to hear what it is!

  2. Despite all of the trials and tribulations, I think you still had a pretty good year! Cheers to starting fresh in 2015 and to staying injury free!!

  3. Katie,
    I think you did great with all those runs. I only ran two half's, and one 5K. Ran about 650 in training. I did not know people did 100 mile races! I have not even decided if I will ever try anything beyond a half yet.
    I think you had a great year running.
    Happy New Year!!!

  4. You had a fantastic year! I ran a total of *maybe* 54 miles... 2015 will be better for my running! I am excited!

    And you can't just leave a girl hanging here! What's this crazy thing you want to do?! I know you can do anything you set your mind to!

    I'm always proud of you! <3 I love you!

  5. You may think that sounds low, but I would give anything tp have gotten that many miles. Heres hoping 2015 is better for both of us.

  6. I don't think your year sounds low at all. Looks like you ran some great races and had an awesome year. Happy New Year!

  7. Happy New Year! You accomplished so much :)
