2015 by the numbers

Want to see how the last two years compare? Check out 2013 and 2014.

This year saw one less race than last year, but about 14 more miles for a total of 221.25 race miles in 18 races!
  • 1 5k
  • 1 4-miler
  • 2 8ks
  • 1 5-miler
  • 9 half marathons
  • 3 trail races
  • 1 marathon (and 1 failed attempt)
Only 1 official PR in 2015, but it was a big one, taking 41:41 off my marathon time and crushing the 5-hour mark. I also did my longest trail run to date, with the 14-mile Hardesty Hardcore. I also hiked 28.3 miles in one day and raised over $2,880 for Make-A-Wish of Western North Carolina during the Trailblaze Challenge

512.2 miles run / hiked with the Charity Miles app, raising money for ASPCA, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Stand Up to Cancer, Team Red, White and Blue, Wounded Warrior Project and the National Park Foundation. 

4,150,626 steps (or 1,903 miles) based on my steps tracker. I was aiming for 2,015 miles in 2015 and was surprised at how close I came. I beat last year's mileage by 576 miles and 1,284,247 steps. Next year I'll have an extra day to get in 2,016 miles.

12 states visited, including races in 6 new states: Washington, DC, Wyoming, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon and Georgia. I had two big running trips this year. My first was a 2-week trek through Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana which included two half marathons and lots of backcountry hiking. The second was a slightly shorter trip that started in New Mexico and ended up in Oregon. I've only got 31 more states to check off a race in every state (plus DC)!

I'm not sure what all 2016 will hold, but here's to kicking off another great year!
