Goal: Run 2019 miles in 2019

I’ve set a running goal for the 2019 calendar year — to run 2019 (or more) miles.

I ran 1,638 miles in 2018, which averaged out to about 4.5 miles per day. That means I need to up my yearly mileage by about 380 miles. A fair increase, but certainly possible provided I can keep from getting injured and/or sick.

With some basic math — 2019 (miles) divided by 365 (days) — I find I will need to average about 5.5315068493 miles per day. To keep that a bit simpler, and to ensure I go over as opposed to under the goal, we’ll just call it 5.55 miles per day.

Running in 2018

I have finished another calendar year with my run streak going strong.

It always feels natural to look back based on a calendar year, but in the case of running I also have the run streak year mark, My running streak began on May 1 in 2014. Basically, that was to say you’ll likely get to see a similar summary post come May 1, 2019.

But anyway, here is what I ran for 2018.

1,638.2 miles, which averages to about 4.49 miles per day. (I am looking to increase that amount by about 1 mile each day in 2019, but more on that in a future post.)

Fitbit One to Versa: Fitbit finally got me to upgrade

I’ve been wearing a Fitbit since January 2013, and I’ve been wearing a smartwatch since the original Pebble was released. But it wasn’t until the newly released Fitbit Versa that I finally felt the need to merge my activity tracking and smartwatch.

The Versa has been on my wrist for a few days now, and while there are a few things I am not fully sold on, I have to say — it seems like a pretty good watch.

A new place for me to share pictures

I do not consider myself a photographer, however I do like to take and share pictures. Those pictures come from my Pixel 2, HTC Re, Nikon D3400 and DJI Spark — and now they will live in a gallery on SmugMug Flickr. And, I also share pictures on Instagram.

Smartphone home screen: June 2017

Still rocking the Nexus 5x, and still hoping to upgrade my device sooner rather than later. I had been thinking Pixel, but now I am also thinking iPhone. We’ll see.

Otherwise, I am still using Action Launcher and as you can see from my January 2017 update — things are not all that different.
