Shaking it Up in the New Year

So long, 2014. You were pretty good to me.

Most memorable: I ran my second 100 miler in July. I'm really proud of that accomplishment, because I really had to work to come back after my foot injury. And while I wouldn't recommend it, it's nice to know I could eke out 100 miles on so little training when I  wanted it badly enough.

I'm truly honored and excited that I have been chosen to be a Moderator on The Whole 30 Forum. If you do a Whole30 anytime in the future (and I highly recommend it), make sure you stop in for encouragement, support and answers to your questions. It's a friendly place and always lively.

While I don't usually make formal New Year resolutions, I love this piece on Melissa Joulwan's alternative to setting goals or making a resolution.

This year, I'm going to run some new and different races. West Coast, here I come!

I'm also getting a coach to help me reach my racing potential. I want to see what I'm capable of in ultrarunning with serious, dedicated training. I'm better when I have structure. And I'm ready to try something new. I'm already feeling more motivated.

Have you made any big changes or resolutions? What are you excited about for 2015?

Happy New Year! 


  1. Sounds like you are in for an AWESOME 2015!!

  2. It looks like a great year! Good on you for getting a coach. I've been working with Coach Karl since 2013 and I feel it's improved my running far more than spending that money on a gym membership.

  3. It is going to be a great year, girl! Vermont was an awesome kick, and the Whole30 appreciation is sweet! You can email me for moral support anytime:)

  4. Happy New Year, Kir! And exciting news all around. I think you will enjoy having a coach and a bit more structure. And new races on the west coast are always fun!

  5. Very cool! Congrats on the 100 miler and Whole 30 moderator. I always see your posts when I stop by the forum. I started a new round of Whole 30 on 1/1 and was thinking of you yesterday. I still keep all the original paperwork you sent me back when I did my first whole 30 in 2013. I think I need to get active of the forum for some support. I think getting a coach sounds super exciting. Come see us here in the PNW! We have some great races.

  6. I cannot imagine what you are capable of with structured, coached training. Looking forward to seeing what is in store for you this year.

  7. Recovery is a ponderous process, but it is a process, in which we should move forward and follow. In any case, you should support it with ample and precise treatments that should alleviate your pain in due time. Anyway, thanks for sharing that! I hope that you are faring better these days! Take care!
