From The Ginger Runner:

“Over the past few months, I was treating 2019 as a failure. I didn’t create as much as I wanted, I didn’t complete some running goals and I let myself down a lot. What I failed to acknowledge was just how successful 2019 actually was! From Tiger Claw, a top iTunes album, amazing consistency in content creation, pacing and filming multiple friends at their A-races, to even attempting my own 100 mile race after a 4 year period of time away from the distance. I adventured a ton, I stayed healthy, I lived and I loved. That sounds like a success to me! For years I wanted to complete the arbitrary goal of running a 100 mile training week. Outside of running a 100 mile race, I’ve come close a couple of times, but had never been able to complete it purely. I figured what better way to close out 2019 – and the decade – then by finally knocking out 100 miles over 7 days.”
