Ah, the miles of 2014!!! There were so many of them…some easy and fun, and some hard and painful…but they all added up to a great year! I think applying this quote to running pretty much sums it up!
I am terrible at keeping track of my mileage. This is the second year that I have attempted it and failed (usually by mid February too). I am trying again in 2015 so just keep asking me how it is going :). If I had to throw a number out there though I would guess it was about 2,350. That is probably pretty close too, give or take 50 miles.
I ran 6 races; 1 5k, 4 1/2 marathon’s and 1 marathon.
My marathon was a big marathon PR!!!!
My girls both ran their first 5k!!!!
We moved from a fairly flat area to a fairly hilly area so that changed the race dynamic slightly :). Gotta love those hills!
The races looked like this:
Celtic 5k in my new home town: 21:09. This was my first race in Maryland and my first taste of what some of the hills in this area are like.
Garden Spot 1/2 Marathon in April- 1:37
Annapolis Zooma 1/2 marathon in May- 1:37
Bird in Hand 1/2 Marathon in Sept- 1:47- this was by far the hardest and worse race that I have ever run!….but there are lessons to be learned in everything
Freedom 1/2 marathon- 1:35:06
Richmond Full Marathon – 3:19:09- Definitely my best race of the year!
The races in pictures…..
Loved getting to meet LAURA
I am really looking forward to all that 2015 has to bring. I am excited to work towards some new PR’s and have a lot of fun running with my family also!
So far 2015 has started off a little bumpy as far as running goes….but I am feeling really good now and today’s 7.5 mile run at a 7:48 pace was just what I needed to get me motivated!!!
I also am excited to share this: I am a huge fan of Nuun and thrilled to share it!
Who keeps track of their miles for the year?
Who else loves Nuun? If you haven’t tried it yet…you must!
