I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE THAT NOVEMBER IS OVER AND WE ARE ALREADY INTO THE MONTH OF DECEMBER. IT BLOWS MY MIND THAT SUNDAY IS THE BIG DAY: MARATHON DAY!

2013 IS WRAPPING UP SO VERY QUICKLY, BUT I STILL HAVE QUITE A FEW MILES TO LOG BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR.  NOVEMBER WAS A GREAT MONTH OF TRAINING. I LOGGED 141.3 MILES THIS MONTH. IT FELT GREAT TO GET OUT THERE EVERY WEEKEND AND WORK HARD ON MY LONG RUNS AND THE MID WEEK RUNS SHORTENED SO THEY WEREN'T AS HARD TO FIT INTO OUR BUSY WORLD. 

MY LONGEST RUN WAS NOVEMBER 16TH, I RAN 21 MILES AND IT WAS BRUTAL. THE DISTANCE DIDN'T FEEL BAD, BUT THE WEATHER GAVE ME A RUN FOR MY MONEY. THE WIND WAS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE THE WHOLE MORNING, BUT I GOT TO FINISH THE RUN WITH BRANDON & THE YMCA RUNNING GROUP WHICH GOT ME THROUGH THE TOUGH MILES.  ONE OF THE BEST RUNS OF MY TRAINING CAME ON NOVEMBER 23RD. IT WAS A SIX MILE RUN ON A VERY VERY COLD MORNING. EVERYTHING JUST FELT RIGHT AND I RAN IT UNDER A 9 MINUTE PACE (WHICH IS PRETTY FAST FOR A SLOW LADY LIKE MYSELF!) NOVEMBER WAS AWESOME AND FULL OF GREAT RUNS, BUT I CAME IN A LITTLE SHORT ON MY MILES FOR THE MONTH WHICH MEANS I JUST HAVE TO WORK HARDER IN DECEMBER THAN ORIGINALLY PLANNED. 

HERE IS MY TOTAL MILEAGE:
JANUARY: 25.45 MILES
FEBRUARY: 0
MARCH: 15.2 MILES
APRIL: 50.2 MILES
MAY: 69.1 MILES
JUNE: 86.55 MILES
JULY: 83.4 MILES
AUGUST: 139.6 MILES
SEPTEMBER: 137 MILES
OCTOBER: 143.45 MILES
NOVEMBER: 141.3 MILES

TOTAL FOR THE YEAR:  891.25 

I HAVE 109  MILES LEFT TO RUN THIS YEAR.
26.2 OF THOSE MILES WILL BE CHECKED OFF THE LIST AFTER SUNDAY! 
THE LAST FEW WEEKS OF THE YEAR ARE GOING TO BE SPENT HITTING THE PAVEMENT AND CONTINUING THE HARD WORK I HAVE PUT IN TO REACH THE GOAL I SET FOR MYSELF. 

DO YOU HAVE ANY END OF THE YEAR GOALS YOU ARE WORKING ON? I'D LOVE TO HEAR!

I am in awe, Meg! That takes tough training to be prepared for that weather!
