2012 – More Cycling Less Running

December 31, 2012 3:29 pm

It was an interesting year in sports.  I started out the year doing about as much running as I did last year, although not quite up to the level of the years when I ran a marathon.  Then toward the middle of the year my running dropped off considerably as I ramped up my biking to train for the Hoodoo 500.  I ended up the year with two personal annual cycling records, the most miles bike and the most feet climbed.  It was the first time in my life when I biked 12,000 miles in a year, which means I averaged 1,000 a month.  I had hoped to reach 800,000 feet of climbing, but did not quite make it, but did exceed my prior best year.
