Great year-end total but I kicked your ass. 1,744.4. 1.7 miles (or 0.097% of our yearly totals) counts as an ass kicking right?
I got in 6.1 miles for my first outdoor run of the year today. It was 8º but there was no windchill to speak of and not much snow on the ground so really not bad at all. We've been lucky in the snow department so far this season compared to last so I am not going to complain.
Last year I had a goal of 2,014 miles but I obviously missed it. Looking back at my monthly totals it was all due to some serious slacking in January through April. I'm unofficially aiming for 2,015 miles this year but it will depend on how I do in the first two months of the year whether or not it will be feasible.
Besides the local runs I'm planning to run the Marine Corps Half Marathon in Camp Lejeune, NC in September, the Detroit Marathon in October, and possibly either a 17.75k run in March or the Marine Corps Historic Half in May (both in the Quantico, VA area). I'd like to also get out west to New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, or somewhere like that with some elevation for a half marathon.
