Happy New Year!!
In December I ran 81.62 miles compared to 59.36 in November. I signed for the Runner’s world Holiday Running Streak and was doing really good until December 12 when I was just so tired (not just from running) that I decided to take some time off. And I did ! I took 4 days off then ran for 5 more days and then followed by a few more days of running. I still think I did good.
Total miles ran in 2012 was 848.41 miles compared to 736.54 in 2011.
In 2013 I will be traveling across the country to run various half marathons sponsored by the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. Join me!
This year I ran 21 races:
My best race experiences were the ultramarathon and the Ragnar Relay Chicago.
I did the ultra because it was on my list of top 40 things to do and because it was four weeks after the Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Marathon. I already had the training and what is 5 more miles? Ha, it does matter. Still, great experience!!
The Ragnar Relay was also on my list. I had the longest “leg” and struggled to finish it. Overall, it was fun but also exhausting!! My team members were AWESOME!!! I wish I could do it again next year but can’t because of work reasons.
This year I ran in several Brooks shoes such as Ravenna, PureCadence, Glycerin, and PureConnect. My favorite is PureConnect and plan to run in them in all of my races next year. I also became a big fan of PRO Compression Socks. I own five different pairs in various colors and plan to buy more. Hmm, maybe the purple and the orange ones?
1. Finish all of the races I sign up for
2. Run a sub 2 half marathon
3. Run more than 1,000 miles
Just Keep Running!
