Four Years of Run!

Today marks 4 years since I started this running journey.  FOUR YEARS!!!!

Happy Runnerversary to me!

Everyday, I can still hardly believe I started, let alone that I kept going.
  • Over 500 runs logged on pavement, trail, track and treadmill; rain, shine, snow, ice, hill, mud, dirt, mountain, hypothermia, country, city
  • 58 races run
  • 2 Full marathons (and now training for a third)
  • 13 half marathons
  • 2 relays
  • 1 Goofy
  • Over $13000 raised for the fight against blood cancer
  • Too many 5, 10 & 15k races to count
  • So many runner girls running by my side - thank you all for your support!  I am proud to be friends with such incredible women - both near and far!
  • 3500 kms
  • 16 pairs of running shoes
  • Races run in 12 different cities/towns in 2 provinces and 2 states (doesn't seem like much for how much I feel like I've travelled)
  • Steps run in 3 different countries (Canada, US, Mexico)
  • Pounds and pounds of Gu ingested
  • Litres and litres of electrolyte mix drunken
  • Hours and hours spent at the chiropractor to keep me on my feet
  • Two drawers bursting at the seams with runwear
  • One treadmill purchased
  • Two garmins, one ipod, one fitbit
  • 32:04 to 27:35 in a 5k
  • 1:10:44 to 59:38 in a 10k
but most importantly
  • one healthy me who exercises consistently and loves almost every minute.  Yep - that's the most important thing of all.

  2. Holy cow! Yay! You go girl. Normally I'd bounce up and down a bit more, but my bouncer is broken, along with just about everything else at the moment.
