Down to the Wire!

2012 Goal:
Run 1,000 miles

As of today, I have 1,006 miles logged out doors this year. 


I may have only had 5 hours of sleep, woken up late because I forgot to set my alarm, had a banana, bread, pb, and random holiday chocolates for breakfast AND lunch, and left my running wind breaker at home on a 35 degree day, but none of that was going to keep me from topping off that 1k mile mark!  And today's 6.43 mile run had 390 feet of elevation change!  Hello Lake Placid training hills!!  =D

I still have 23 miles on the schedule for this weekend, so I'm looking at a total log of 1,029 miles in 2012 (not counting dreadmill miles).  That'll put me at an average of 20 miles per week, which means that according to the Wall Street Journal article One Running Shoe in the Grave, I am not yet doing damage to my body by mileage.  We'll just leave pace out of it.  haha

Here's to 1500 miles in 2013!!


1.  How many miles have you gotten in for the 2012 calendar year?

2.  Do you religiously log your miles?
I keep a rather exact spread sheet.  

3.  Anyone have an interesting holiday story?

Dream.  Believe.  Achieve.
