8 Months down

It's been 8 months since I started running. I still remember the first day that I ran past about 7 neighbor's homes and then I walked to finish my half mile. That week I ran, but mostly walked every day and I felt like a champ.

Fast forward to today, the last day of January, 2007. I've run 7 races, including a half marathon. I've run in 4 different states, parks, canals, busy streets and quiet neighborhoods. But, what I'm most proud of is the 452 miles I have logged since I started keeping track August 2nd.

This week I ran 5 miles on Monday in 1:01:00 and 3 miles today in 40:17. It's been a busy week and I wish I would have a few miles more, but I'll take what I can.

Aren't statistics motivational? As a fellow data hound, I can appreciate the joy of seeing a number and realizing what that means on a personal level.
Keep up the great work, you are creeping up on 500!

Pat, If you want to take the Garmin for a test spin you totally can!! Then you can fix it while you have it! ;>) I am serious about you trying it out! You will love it! But you can only borrow it on one of my rest days and I need a child as collateral.

The statistics are always a good memory and help to improve.
