I thought about doing this in “good” and “bad” numbers, but it’s all a matter of perspective. For instance, I could call this first one a bad number, but even after starting the long process of getting back into marathon shape, I was still running. That’s something to be thankful for.
18: Days of no running in January after finishing my no run streak beginning 10/17/15 to quiet the inflamed bursa sac under my heel.
2: Half marathons raced.
1: Marathons raced.
1: 5Ks raced.
2: Races run with one of my kids!
1:31:21: The half marathon time I would have run if I hadn’t gone off course in a small town race.
1:34:16: A pretty good 13.1 split at KCM.
3:31:27: The final result after a really bad second half at KCM.
82.4: The temperature at the finish line at KCM.
20:23: A respectable 5K turkey trot time on a hilly course.
1583.42: Running mileage for the year. Not bad for having to ramp back up with low mileage treadmill running and a half marathon training plan through June.
226.39: Running mileage for December. The most volume I’ve ever run in a month.
2017: The running mileage I’m going to do in 2017.
4: Races I have already placed on my calendar for 2017.
