10:05

Most years I publish an end of year post that's a look back at the previous year's running accomplishments, achievements and milestones. I often entitle these posts with the total number of miles for that year, because that number, to some extent, does tell a story.

But this year, the real story was my extremely slow pace. 10:05 is so much slower than previous years that it's... well, I can't think of the words to go there right now. But they're not good ones. I should add that that slow pace is at least partly because of my Achilles Tendonitis injury. But old age is a factor as well.

The miles? 2806.77: not too awful, compared to other years. Only the pace was awful. I'm hoping for better things in 2016.

Here's where I'm at with all my documented miles over the years:
