This month I ran 84.3 miles.  Much better this month.  Below are the races I completed this month.

  • Chicago’s Perfect 10 Mile, November 12
  • Run 3.14 Pie, November 24

Both races were new this year.  I had a great time at both of them so I plan to race them again next year.

Total miles ran this year is 657.93.  Definitely no chance of hitting 1,000 miles before December 31.  That is OK because my new goal is to run 1,000 miles before November 19, 2012 which is the day before I turn 40.  Yep, you read correctly.  I will turn 40 next year.  Do I feel almost 40?  Nope.

Finally got my Brooks PureProject Cadence.  To date I’ve ran 33.16 miles and they feel GREAT!!  I love them!  They’re expensive ($120) but totally worth it.  My next pair will be a Ravenna.  I know that in a previous post I wrote that I was a fan of Asics.  Well, I have converted to a Brooks fan.

Glad it is December.  That means only less than 3 weeks of work and then off for vacation.  I will be visiting my sister and nephew in San Antonio.  Yay!!  I am so ready for it.
