2016 Tuna 200 Race Report

This will be the first time I’ve written a post like this, so if it’s terrible, I’m sorry. This post will be not related to Salesforce work at all so don’t feel obligated to read it if you’re expecting Salesforce stuff.

2016 marks the 3rd year that I’ve participated in the Tuna 200 and the 5th time I’ve done a endurance relay race. I thought I’d take a moment to record how this year’s race went, what worked well and what I would change for next year

2 Years of Running

by Patrick Connelly posted on March 07, 2016

Back in 2013 a couple of folks from the Salesforce community challenged each other to do the Runners World Run Streak. Eight of us started the challenge of running at least one mile a day for 35 days. Of those eight, four completed the challenge. This sparked a fire in me to try to keep the streak alive. Starting November 28th 2013 I ran at least a mile a day until February 23rd 2013 (88 days) when my son was born. After a little more than a week off (which felt like a lifetime) I picked back up and decided to keep the streak going for as long as possible. Yesterday (March 6th) marks two years of running every day. I wanted to take a little bit of time to put down what I’ve learned about running and about myself over these two years.
