This month I ran 82.61miles. No races this month. I am too much of a chicken to run in the cold. Oh well, that will change once I get back to Chicago to continue my training for the Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Marathon. Just a little over 2 months to go. So far I have been training on the treadmill but feel like I should get out there.
Total miles ran this year is 736.54. Last year I had set a goal of running 1,000 miles by today. Yeah, that did not happen. I’d like to blame it on the slow months of February (20 miles) and July (17 miles). I remember in February I got hurt and could not run hence the 20 miles. This summer I went on a 3 week vacation to Mexico, Ecuador, and Peru which left no time for running (17 miles) but A LOT of time for walking.
Besides the marathon I have signed up for the following races:
CARA Lakefront 10 Miler, 4/28
Fleet Feet Sports Soldier Field 10 Miles, 5/26
I’ve done both races in the past and LOVE them!!! I will also sign up for the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K. Another great race! However, registration doesn’t start till tomorrow. 🙂
Thanks to Katie at Live Half Full, I found out about the Chi Town Half Marathon & 10K on April 1. Looks interesting. I will wait a few months (early registration ends March 4) before I make a definite decision on whether I do it or not.
This year I ran a total of 15 races.
My goal for next year is to run at least 20 races. That is only 5 more than this year. For sure I can do it.
What is the most races you’ve done in a year?
Happy New Year and Run Happy!!!
