New Years Eve!

Good last morning of 2013 morning.



I started the morning off with a quick run that took some SERIOUS self-talk to begin.

Workout of the Day: 4 miles easy



  • 1 mile warm up (6.3)
  • Kept 6.3 pace through out, but with one minute at 8.0 every 5 minutes.

This was a bit of a drag of a run, but I couldn’t end 2013 without a run, could I?  Speaking of running. . .

2013 Running Goal

I mentioned a little while back that one of my very few goals for 2013 were to hit 1000 miles in 2013.  When I looked at my progress in late October, I thought I had NO chance.  I was still a ways out and was lacking motivation.  Then Pile On The Miles  happened and I not only found motivation, I was having some of my highest mileage weeks ever.

Now here I am in the last week of December and I just had a 32.5 mile week.  According to daily mile, I am ending 2013 at 1,019 miles.  And I couldn’t be more proud of myself.  I set to back-to-back half marathon PR’s, and found a new passion for running through tough races, injuries, and cold days.

I can’t wait to see what 2014 beings me 🙂

Question of the morning:  Did you meet your goals for 2013

  1. Way to go! With everyone’s talk of a year’s worth of miles, I’m going to go back and see how many I ran – of course it will be missing the couple weeks my gps wasn’t working…
