A Look in a Runners Rearview Mirror!

Anna's 2010 Running Stats:

Typically run 4x a week
Average 15 miles per week
Fastest mile was 8'15
79,765 is the number of calories I burnt from running
And my grand total of miles ran in 2010 was 757 MILES! Yes my friends from Feb 14th 2010 till Dec 31 2010 I ran SEVEN HUNDRED FIFTY SEVEN MILES!!!!

So how did I kick off 2011...I ran 9 miles....ON A TREADMILL! I really have to give credit to my fellow run buddy (across the land in Minnesota) Jana. She's always running long distances on a TM and the most I've done is 6 miles. But I kept thinking if Jana can do it I can "Bitch up Anna and get on that TM!" so today I did I did have to stop at 5.5 miles to hit the potty (thanks RT's son of a) then I jumped back on and opened up  my Nook Color (thanks to bigger font it not to hard to read) and tried to get lost in Assholes Finish First By Tucker Max (sequel to I Hope The Serve Beer In Hell) it helped but I really had to dig deep to get through the last mile. I had to stop for my 2nd time with just over a mile to go because I lost my page on the Nook and couldn't find it again by running...I got swipe  happy and swiped a few to many pages lol. Anyway as I type this blog I am and about to set up my next 1/2 marathon training log after all February 1st will be here before I know it and the countdown to my 2nd 1/2 Mary will begin. So on tap is the 500 Festival Mini Marathon in Indy May 7th (already registered, seeded and hotel booked), I'd like to run the Quad Cities Marathon (but haven't check out the deets yet on it) I do plan to run the Steamboat 15K this summer and will most definitely do the Mankato 1/2 Mary again come October (the 22nd I believe) with Jana plus my cousin Andrea said she wants to do it so I'm ready...the the running begin!
