Running Resolutions

I am trying to get back on the road -
to run

I haven't run consistently since before Meleah was born at the end of July.

I have had good spurts of running - but haven't been able to stick with it.

For 2012, I am re-setting the goal of running 1000 miles this year.

My original plan was to run 1000 before my next birthday.

There is still time for that, since my birthday is not until May,
but I would have to run appox. 32-35 miles per week to make it.

That's not a realistic goal for a mother of six.... so I am calling a
and starting a

It's NOT too late to start a New Year's Resolution (*running or otherwise)

No one said you have to start on New Year's Day!

Anyone want to take the challenge to walk / run  1000 miles in 2012 ?!

We can challenge, encourage and motivate one another to keep on running!

Here are my 2011 stats - and I hope they are improved in 2012.

I am posting them to keep me accountable.

According to Nike:
I ran 444 miles in 2011
My average pace was (not impressive)  12.18 per mile
I average running 3 times a week, mostly in the mornings and on Tuesdays.
I burned 43,404 calories (why aren't I skinny?)

My fastest mile was 8.08 (*that was running down Nimitz Hill as I recall)
My fastest 5K was 27:43 (*probably also running down Nimitz Hill)
My fastest 10K was 1:01:57
and my longest run was 13.18 in honor of my friend Michael Ansley.

My best month was June.
I ran 77.73 miles with an average pace of 10.31 per mile.

Here's to a healthy, happy 2012!
