Congratulations Denise, Loren, and Gail! I'm closing the year with 1696.1 miles for 2010. Yes, you'd think I go out and run 3.9 just to reach 1700, but I plan to run 18 miles tomorrow to usher in 2011, so I'm resting up today.

Happy new year, and keep on running!

-- Michael

Congratulations John!

I'm at 1491 but taking next week off. I start marathon training at the end of this month, and next week is a convenient time to freshen up my legs.

Gail - I also have 10-15 pounds that have crept on in the last couple years... I like the idea of starting now to avoid EXTRA with all the holiday parties.

i have still been running it's just that I haven't been logging it in my runner's log book. So I have lost track. I was no where near 1500 so it's not totally important that I keep track.

This weight loss thing really is for the birds. I am so hungry right now and did eat a very good (healthy) breakfast. My typical bacon and eggs and toast hold me a lot better. two hours to go before lunch.

Joe - my plan is to start watching my weight now so that after the holidays I don't have 13 pounds plus holiday weight gain to deal with in January.

You guys are so so close. That is awesome.

I am no longer keeping track of my miles. I am on a mission to lose the 13 pounds I have put on over the past few months. Right now my goal is to burn, baby burn, at least 500 calories a day.

Hi Gail,

Very likely not. My work schedule is going to be pretty heavy the first part of next year. And I will be training for a March marathon.

You running a marathon in Miami?

You guys are running strong. I will not even come close to 1500 miles but I do have did have a fantastic run on tuesday.

I ran a very hilly route (10k) with a couple of women who are stronger then I am. It was tought and a huge challenge but I got it done and can't wait to run with them again.

I have 107 more days to run so if I am to make my goal i need to run an average of 6.79 miles per day. I have been crazy enough in the pass to attain such a goal so I suppose I will not write my 1500 miles off yet, (but I do realize it's highly unlikely).

Gail, I think that you should run the miles that you can between now and the end of the year and see what happens. Just make them quality miles. Run long, run tempo, and run easy. Mix it up and simply enjoy every mile.

Some years are good and some years are better. Should you go nuts? Well, would it mean possibly getting injured and burning out on running? If yes, maybe you shouldn't go nuts.

I went all the way back to May and wrote down all the miles that were in my garmin. I have a few runs I am not sure of... two runs were at an 11:something pace..those were most likely one mile run one mile walk or something like that...so this year's total will not be 100% accurate but it will only be off by a few miles.

I will post the total once I have it all added up. From May to now I have only run about twice a week. the grand total will not be big.

Hello boys and girls.

I ran a 1/2 marathon last Sunday and it went very well. I ran it with tamtam64 and we crossed the finish line in 2:17 making it a PB for Tammy. Her Husband Danny was also running. He ran it in about 2h8m giving him a PB. If was a fun run.

I ran 3 miles today. I have no idea how many miles I have run so far this year. One of these days I am going to sit down and figure it all out.

I see many of you are pushing 1000 miles...very good!

Gail - hope your race went well today!

I topped 1000 miles this past week in Colorado on vacation. It was beautiful running there, and I feel more speedy now that I'm back at sea level.

Thanks Denise.

it feels great to be back doing the things that keep me feeling normal.

I started running less when I started working more. then I also joined a group in sparks that was awesome but took way to much of my time. Soon I found myself not doing the things that I loved doing. It was like 'if I can't do it all, I am not doing any of it.'

Last week I dropped out of the 'Biggest Loser' forum here on sparks and for whatever reason things are falling back into place for me. I also had an extra day off a week for the past couple weeks. And this coming Saturday I am going to enjoy a rare Saturday off.

Life is good right now.

today...off for a 1/2 a day of work. I have lots to do in the next 5 hours at work and i really want to get it all done. Then I would like to put in a 5 mile run. Plus I have an endless list of things that need to get done in the house (the list has been left with dh and kids) and then we leave for a weekend at the camper.

Nice to be back Michael. :-)

i ran 13.1 miles yesterday. I have a half marathon on the 25th of july. I haven't been runnng very much and my distances have really been short. I had to make sure I could still run the distance.

one of these days I just might add up my mileage and see if there is anyway to make it to 1500 this year.

I haven`t recorded my mileage in a very long time. it`s all on my garmin so I suppose it`s possible to figure it out.

I don`t expect to make it to 1500 miles this year.
