they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

how it adds up.

last january, i began tracking the number of miles i ran. i wanted to know, at the end of the year, how far i had come. on the days i didn't run, i typically cross trained. those miles aren't recorded here.

here's how it breaks down:

January = 74.05 miles

February = 49.15 miles ( i spend several days in the hospital that month and a week skiing, which is why the total is low)

March = 80.5 miles

April = 74.0 miles

May (the month i got the stress fractures because i overdid it) = 96.75 miles

June = zero miles (stress fracture hell)

July = zero miles (wearing the robo-boot, in recovery mode)

August = probably around 15 miles, but not enough to track.

September = 87.15 miles

October = 64.2 miles

November (when morton's neuroma struck) = 22.7 miles

December = 81.85 miles

total tracked miles for 2006 = 631.25

had i not overdone it and been injured for so long, i may have logged near 1,000 miles.

goal for 2007 = stay injury free, run longer distances, fewer days in a row. listen to my body. if it hurts - stop. complete another half marathon. run a full marathon. run a 5K as fast as i can. get a six-pack (abs, of course)

here's to another year of running!

    Congrats on a well-run '06. I've been a lazy girl over the holiday break, but my goals for '07 are like yours: Stay injury-free and steadily increase mileage, running every other day or so.

    And LISTEN to my body! Tough to do when your mind wants to keep going :)
