The first few weeks of January are a stark contrast to the hectic holiday season.  The fleeting sunlight of those short, dark and cold winter days, once hidden amid the bright, festive lights, challenge us to dig deep for that endorphin antidote.

I’ve found a committed pursuit toward steady progress is a powerful motivator for layering and lacing up when the wind is blowing and the mercury is stuck below the freezing mark.  With the second turn of the calendar since I began running, I thought it would be a good idea to see whether the numbers supported what I thought: that my consistency, milage and endurance continued to steadily progress.

Fortunately, my perceptions weren’t too far divorced from reality.  Best of all, the numbers reveal there is still plenty of room for more progress in 2015.  For that, I will raise my glass of nuun and  toast to an exciting new year of miles and milestones!
