On yesterday's run I reached...
One... Thousand... Miles!!!
(said in the Mike Myers Austin Power's Voice)
WHOO HOOO! Let's do a quick recap of the year, so you can understand why I'm so over the moon. Thankfully, Daily Mile has cheerfully stored my mile entries without complaint (which is a rare thing as far as I'm concerned and should be positively reinforced).
RUNNING Total for JANUARY 2010: 5 miles
Yea, that's a 5, and NO, there are no other words or numbers there that might make that number better. I finished 2009 with a devastating injury that left me with several months of rehab and a medical bills that totaled into the thousands. (somewhere I read once that running is really economical).
RUNNING Total for the rest of the year really show my steady, and not so steady, climb back into my favorite sport...
Feb 27 miles
Mar 54 miles
Apr 100 miles
May 117 miles
June 129 miles
July 148 miles
Aug 157 miles
Sept 186 miles
Oct so far isn't that exciting, but I'll include the number anyway: 87 miles
And here I am, with 1000 miles under my shoes. Wow.
I always thought I would be really poetic, and artful, and... to be honest, I'm so drained from Marathon Training PLUS 11 Credit Hours of school PLUS feeling the weight of that application over my head PLUS being a mom of 3 kids that I really don't have anything else to say except...
I thought to celebrate my accomplishment I would do a NEUROTIC Give Away!
What's in the pot you ask???
I thought I would include a few prizes that include things that I love that take some of my Neuroses Down at Notch...
Tall Socks - which keep me warm on cold days whether I wear them with a short skirt or long jeans.
Nathan's Reflector - which keeps me safe on my early morning excursions, and can also keep a child quiet in the DMV line. (either the light or bracelets)
Gummy Bears - which can be used as an emergency "kid" bribe or even as fuel if you're out of GU.
KOOL-Aid - because let's face it, if you're reading the blog here, you're probably already drinking the Kool-aid... even if you don't drink Kool-aid, you can always use it to dye your hair like a college student or color play-dough for your preschoolers.
There will be two prizes, randomly chosen.
