Merry Christmas all you apex predators. I am not going to bore you to tears with my year because I could write a 10,000-word treatise.
I organized the 2020 Pan Am Cross Country Championships or more accurately brought all the right people into the room to organize it. It was very successful. Some people were calling it potentially the greatest small international cross country champs all-time. Sadly USATF president Bill Roe died on the mountain with us. But it was otherwise a wonderful weekend. Of course, you can read all about it at Athletics Illustrated. And see all the post-race interviews that I did. It was the last international meet or any meeting before the pandemic hit. LUCK!
My running has gone okay. I did get a few 100K (62-mile) weeks in, but five times this year I have run into calf issues. So, now I am on a two-month stretch of no calf issues at about 40-miles per week 65K….not quite…..will grow that volume properly this time.
Merry Christmas to everyone (or whatever your respective seasonal affected celebration is labeled — enjoy).
Feel free to join the Athletics Illustrated Strava Club (and the Hip Runners one too of course).
