This month I ran 52.7 miles. Yeah, SLOW month. Below are the races I completed this month:
- ING Hartford Marathon, October 15
- Carrera de los Muertos/Day of the Dead 5K, October 29
Total miles ran this year is 569.63. I was really hoping to run a total of at least 1,000 miles this year but a semi-injury in February (ran 29 miles that month) and my 3 week vacation in the summer to Mexico, Ecuador, and Peru (49.5 in June and 17 in July) slowed me down. I did A LOT of walking during those 3 weeks that I was so exhausted when I came back and the last thing I wanted to do was run.
Upcoming races this month include:
- Hot Chocolate, 15K, November 5
- Chicago’s Perfect 10 at Navy Pier, November 12
- Run 3.14 Pie 5K, November 24
I am really excited about the races this month. I ran the Hot Chocolate last year and was very disappointed with the course. This year there is a new course so yes I am happy. The Perfect 10 race is new this year and is a 10K or a 10 mile race. Since I am training for another marathon I chose the 10 mile race. The 3.14 race is new for me. The name caught my attention. Plus, the first couple hundred that registered gets to take a pie home. How cool is that?
I am definitely looking forward to 2012!!
