My 2016 in review, in pictures…

First, my review, in words (just a brief summary)

Athletics: swimming stopped at the end of April with a pop in the shoulder and I haven’t gotten back into the water.
Running/walking: running and walking miles: 2046. That is the most miles I’ve had in a year since 2008.
Performance: dismal. 38 miles in the “24 hour” at FANS (36 in the first 10 hours) 25:50, and one 25:59 for 5K. Marathon: one hot weather DNF at mile 20 and 5:52 on a very humid day.
Weights: got 205 on the bench press (at 197 bodyweight); missed at 210. Trying to add leg work.

Professional: no new publications, though I do have one in the process of getting written up. I got promoted.

Social: see the photos; I got to know some old friends better, and had one new friendship develop. Watched a ton of baseball games (Peoria Chiefs), football (mostly Illinois, but some Illinois State and one Western Illinois game), 2 Bears and 2 Colts games; with one more Colt game to go and I went to a bowl game.

Goals for 2017: finish my professional project and submit it for publication. Read a book on “advanced differential equations”. Run a sub 25:30 5K and then sub 25. Break 8 minutes for the mile run. Finish a marathon.

Photos
I started this practice in 2015. I will not caption these photos; I want to see what I can remember. Note: though it is clear what are the most important things in my life: daughter, wife, job, health, much of what I think about and have feelings about might not be “that important” as far as being essential to my survival or to the health and well being of my closest loved ones. But I am human…and I suppose that our memories are not always about the most *important* aspects of our lives.

Not every photo (or meme) is from the exact time of the event, but rather might be representative of the said event.
