Ending the Year

I logged in a total of 572.4 miles for 2007. It was the second most mileage next to 2006’s total of 665.4 and about 8 miles more than the 3rd highest year (2002) of 564.55. It was the 4th time that I broke the 500 mile mark for any one Calendar year.

I ran only 8 races last year, the lowest since I started running in 1998. I did not place in my age group for any of the races, but I did acheive a Personal Record time of 4:08:39 for the marathon at the Chickamauga Marathon (November).

During the year, I used 6 different shoes for running. 2 of which reached the “retired” status and have been put out to pasture.

I had only 1 run (non-race) that was over 10 miles, it was a 20.25 mile training run. All other training runs were 8.4 miles or less. Although, there were days were I ran twice and had a cumulative day mileage of over 10 miles.

Coldest Run that I had recorded data for was 30F at the Strawplains Half Marathon (February).
Hottest Run was in 95F degree weather for a 4 mile run with Soon To Be Dr. David (August).

I had the most single running sessions in October with 19 and the least amount in April with 3 (Pleural Rub injury). My highest mileage month was October with 100.5 miles, marking the second time that I broke the 100 mile marker for any given month.
