2016 Review

Illaca Lake, Peru
This post highlights the statistics of 2016; not necessarily the most riveting read, but if you are into numbers you might find it interesting. I have included my main areas of record keeping – running mileage, time, and vertical gain. Furthermore these stats are compared to my previous 11 years of record keeping. Additionally, I added race statistics, peak bagging numbers, and my (little) Big Year birding total. Enjoy…

Miles= A total of 3662.72 miles running
This year ranks number 5 out of 12 for most miles in a year; the highest year remains 2013 with 4,409.37 miles.

The longest individual run of the year was the Idaho Mountain Ultra Trail Festival 100 miler which was actually more like 103 miles.

Time= 772 hours 07 minutes and 04 seconds spent running.
I believe that my time spent running/hiking equates to 9% of the year.

Vertical Feet = 448,044 feet.
Considering this is the first year I have kept track of this metric, I will assume it is the highest of my lifetime.

My cross training was lacking with about 104.9 miles of biking, 1000 meters of swimming and 5 miles of kayaking.

Descending Snowy Peak, British Columbia
There are a total of 36 peaks, passes, summits, and prominences that I remembered. The list represents three states and two provinces spanning three countries. The vantage points range from buttes to craters to summits to mountain passes. This list of peaks adds to my lifetime list of 92 and includes some one time hikes and also some daily hill repeats.



Birds= 130 new species bringing the life list to 204.

The year 2016 was quite a year, and though I chose to summarize the year in stats in this post, they fall short of capturing all the life changing memories. The highlights are included among the 33 posts that I dispensed this year. If you have some time to kill and would like to get some ideas for trips and adventures for 2017, feel free to give them a look. Thanks for reading and I wish you a fun and productive 2017!
