Some catch up, here are photos from my run in Santa Cruz a few weeks back :)
It's about 70 here in sunny so cal, with beautiful weather! I went for a run for the first time with my mom a few nights ago, which was a blast! After big basin, at which she hiked the 10k, she started adding a bit of running to her walking. Before we started, she told me "now, I don't run it all, I walk the uphills, run some of the flats, and definitely run the downhills"....hmm....sounds like a potential ultra runner to me ;). We did a 3.1 mile loop very comfortably, and it was a blast! My sister's fiance also came along, which made it fun :)
The awesome runners all dressed up for dinner :) Anyone notice my hair? I chopped off about 5 inches :D
On a separate note, thanks to Sarah for helping me find my running log!!!!!!!!! I am so incredibly thankful :D
I now know that:
In 2004, I ran 42.8 miles (haha...yep! well, I don't think I recorded much of the year either. I have six weeks recorded where I ran from November 1st through December 20th, so I don't feel too horrible about that. Didn't run that much before that though, I don't think!)
In 2005, I ran 289 miles and had just begun training for my first marathon the last week of December!
In 2006 I ran 1007 miles! What a jump :) I started becoming an actual runner that year!
In 2007 I've run 1429 miles (so far!) I wanted to break 1500, but with the leg, that didn't happen. Next year it will more than happen for me though!
Now, onto Christmas eve festivities :) Have a great holiday for those celebrating it, and a great day for all!
