Not my best year: about half the total mileage of 2013 or 2014, record low mileage for January, February, and December, and poorer results than previous years on the three races, none longer than 10K. But still staying active with hope for improvement in 2017.

- Run Against Crime 5K

3.14 mi / 27:18 (8:42 pace)
- 5K race at 7pm on a muggy August evening. I ate a big meal ending 30 minutes before the race, which was a bad idea. Still hung in there and finished. Time was slow for me but not terrible. ~ Finished 28th of 54 overall, 18th of 25 among males, and 4th of 5 among males 50-59.
- Rachel’s Race 10K

- This race was beautiful. Cool weather made for a great run. I started slow and finished strong on the hilly 10K course. ~ Finished 16th of 31 overall, 12th of 19 among males, and 3rd of 3 among males 55-59.
