Well, I’ve managed to log 182 miles to date in 2010. Needless to say, I’m off my goal – in large part due to the crazy weather we’ve had in North Carolina (read: lots of snow and ice…go figure)! Here’s to a productive Spring!

8 Miles Down…2002 to Go!

I ran a quick 5 miler yesterday on New Year’s Day and a little over 3 today due to brutal Northwest winds accompanying an arctic air mass that moved into NC overnight! At least my pace is picking up (shaved about 30 seconds a mile off)! I’m looking for a good mile countdown to show […]
