1612.62 and Looking Forward to a New Year!

That is how many miles I ran in 2006. :) It was a great year for me! I believe I ran about 1200 miles the previous year, so that is a big improvement.

I ran 6 races: 1 5k, 1 10k, 2 half marathons, and 2 marathons. I qualified for Boston and I ran my first-ever 50+ mile weeks. Lots of them!

The year ended on a sour note with the injury, but I think that is going to be good for me in the long run. My body is telling me to take a break, and I have no choice but to listen. I think that while my knee is recovering, the rest of my body is recovering too, from all the training and stress of the past few months. I'm not sure if I"ll be doing Boston this year, but that's not a huge deal. I'm looking forward to running again, and I've learned a valuable lesson in taking care of my body. I know my 2007 will be better for it.

Happy New Year!

Congrats on a great year! That is an impressive increase in mileage. I think you will have a great '07, especially with the cross training that is now going to be a part of your routine.
