Running Recap 2017

I don't know how it got to February and I still haven't done a running recap for last year.  It was a good year, in spite of an injury in October that almost shut down my running.  I ran more than ever before, for a total of 1850 miles.

I also did a running streak.  This is where you don't take any days off.  So you must run every single day, for at least one mile.  I had two days that I found this exceptionally challenging.  The first was in January, when I was sick with a fever and sore throat, and had to run on the treadmill at 5:30 am.  That was rough.  The second was in November, on the day following the CR24 (in which I covered 33 miles) when my IT band was really hurting from injury and the rest of my body was very sore.  That was a rough mile too.  But I stuck with it.  This was the first time I ever attempted a running streak.

So it was a good year.  My favorite run was the 9 miler I did in the desert in Arizona, around 4:30 am last summer.  It was amazing!

I don't have any recent pictures of me running.  So here's a picture of Pierce hanging from the ceiling.  Because that totally makes sense, right?


Wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day!

Sure makes sense!
I had to give up running what with leg injuries. I'd done it since I was 15. :-(

We really need to give a camera to Pierce so he can take photos of you on the treadmill. Love that picture of him though!

Gosh,Lisa. You might be too dedicated to running. What if you got pneumonia or something? :-(

Runners always impress me..whether the distance or the frequency. I can't run..it is just not easy or pleasant for me. But...walking...I can do that. I can't wait to get back out on the trail this spring after my feet heal from surgery. I'm READY! Bring on the nice weather for walkers and runners!

Wow, way to go!
That's just so cute, your boys have a great mom.....

DMS said...

Wow! That is a lot of running! I can't imagine running after completing 33 miles the day before- or running while sick.

Love the picture you included. Pierce looks very happy! :)
