One final Long run of 2011

I am finding it hard to recap my whole year in one post.  It sure was a busy but wonderful year.  When I look back there are a few things that stand out....


Running my 3rd Half Marathon with my best running buddy



Buying our first house

Getting Married!


And lots of great runs! I finished the year with 1315 miles, my first ever year over 1000 miles.


It was a great year and I ended it on a great note with 10 miles this morning - the first run with my running buddy in a long time and my longest run in a long time.  We took a very hilly route and my hip flexors were quite sore by the end but my knee really didn't bother me which was great!

Obviously not from the New Years' Eve morning run - we were bundled up for the cold morning!

Here's hoping 2012 will be ever better!

Awesome last run of 2011! And congrats on being way over 1000! I think it's really impressive that your mileage is so high, since you were not marathon training. (I don't mean that in a bad way! Just that that is what it takes for most people, myself included)

You did have a busy year with getting hitched and buying a house! Great job with all the mileage!

Happy New Year!
