2019 in Review – December

2019 Gilbert 12Ks of Christmas

My final race of the year was the Gilbert 12Ks of Christmas, an annual tradition that goes back to 2012. I ran the 6K that year, and every year since then I have run the 12K. 2013 was my fastest 12K there, and every year since then has seen me go progressively slower. This year, I really wanted to reverse that trend, so I made beating last year’s time my one and only race goal. And I did it!

Not only did I beat last year’s time, but I also beat my times for the last several years. Fastest since 2015. I feel great about it and am hoping to maybe push back the clock a year or two more next year. We’ll see!

Now I need to try and get my training on track for my Oracle Rumble 50 miler coming up at the end of January. Wish me luck, because things are completely off the rails right now.

Thanks for reading!
