New blog

This is just a quick heads-up to note that I have started a new blog on a different host and I will soon abandon this one. The new blog contains all the content currently on this blog. You can find it at http://sexyhermit.com

If you are subscribed to the RSS feed that will not automatically redirect to the new site. So if you want to continue to read my posts you will need to subscribe to the new site's RSS feed.

Update: It looks like I was able to successfully redirect the old RSS feed to point to the new blog. So you may not need to resubscribe after all.

October, November, December 2012

Well, it's been a while. November and December were a little bit crazy for me on account of a project I was working on in my spare time.


I haven't raced since October, but I've been doing a lot of high quality training in my build up for the Fuego y Agua 50K in February. As you can see from the chart below, I ran farther in 2012 than any of the past 11 years. This is also the longest I've gone without a sidelining injury during that time. June of 2012 was the only month with low mileage, and that was when I intentionally took a break to recover from my spring races.

Cycling was virtually non-existent for me the past few months. I did one cyclocross race in November on no training and somehow still wound up with a good result. The lack of bike miles towards the end of the year almost allowed my modest running mileage to catch up.

Walking & Hiking

Babler hike

There was a big drop off here as well, mostly because I needed the extra hours to work on my project.
