2017 Long Runs

According to the logbook, in 2017 total distance is ~2300+ miles — amazingly without major injury, astoundingly with two finishes each for 100 mile, 100 km, 50 mile, and 50 km distances, plus three marathons including a pair on a single weekend.

The secret: no secrets, no expectations, no goals. It is as it is. Yes, and it's all good!
