2012-goals: stay injury-free, build a stable aerobic base, transition to running barefoot run barefoot as long as temperatures allow it
Run more km than I did in 2010 (45) 2009 (95) 2007 (148) 2006 (222) 2008 (234) 2011 (best year yet: 318 km)
my ipod died halfway through my run and that last mile and a half were the best ones yet. i wasn't bored or thinking about stopping. i was actually finally able to listen to the rhythm of my body and focus on my breathing and form. at the race last saturday we ran it without ipods and i think we did better because of it. once you're past the motivation hurdle and are eager to get out there each run day, consider trying it without the tunes. you may be surprised at the result!
I like hearing my own breathing and my own feet on the pavement/gravel.etc.
