Making it Count: Keeping Track



2013 was a big year for me…a half marathon, lots of 5k’s, a Tough Mudder, 2 10k’s and even a mile sprint. But, it was a lot more than a rep sheet of races and mile-high experiences. In fact, it took a lot of work to get there; when I spout out the big moments, those smaller ones…the ones that matter…get overlooked. It’s the everyday that matters most sometimes.

I was reading over the posts of friends on New Year’s Eve (because that’s what happens when you’re sick and stuck inside for big holidays like that 🙂 ). One stood out, one friend documented the miles he put in to achieve the bigger goals. It’s simple, and to me, means more than a race count.

I’ve decided to do it for myself. For 2014, I’m keeping track of the miles I run, bike, swim and even elliptical, along with a rep sheet of every lift. I want to take the time to appreciate the everyday moments…the ones that make the big victories mean even more.

What will you be doing differently this year?
