Most of my highest mileage during the mid to late winter and early spring months are in 2013 when I was working in the Rocky Mountain National Park Greenhouse. Whereas my highest mileage in the autumn months occurred in both 2010 and 2011 when I was running cross country for Baldwin Wallace College in Berea, Ohio. My highest mileage late fall and early winter months occurred after my first Leadville 100 when I moved back to Tiffin, Ohio for a short time.

However, I view 2014 as my best racing year since 2011. I attribute this to the quality of the mileage as opposed the quantity of mileage. I started the year by running a 9:17 100K race in Smithville, Texas. After taking a long hiatus from racing, a couple of friends from PT school and I coordinated a track race in Austin. The event was a 3200 meter race in which I would compete against a relay of four people. I ended up losing by three seconds but was happy with my time of 10:36 considering that I had not done a workout pace faster than 6:30 since 2012.
