2017, you fabulous beast

It’s a wrap. December was a struggle, but that’s what a challenge should be. It’s the first time I’ve ever had to fight for 400K and it wasn’t in the bag until this ridiculously awesome workout.

December:

  • 408, 394 steps
    • 9 days below goal (:( but not unexpected and better than December 2016’s 12)
    • December 2016 was 306,676. That’s insane!
  • 179.18 miles run/walked
  • 52.89 miles run

Q4:

  • 1,322,011 steps
    • 12 days below goal
  • 577.08 miles run/walked
  • 158.08 miles run

2017:

  • 5,097,869 steps
    • 54 days below goal (vs. 93! in 2016)
  • 2,205.56 miles run/walked
  • 472.41 miles run

Races:

  • Frozen Penguin, my first ever run – 5K
  • Central Park Spring Classic 10K
  • Run to Breathe – 4M
  • Run 4 the Warriors – 5K
  • Retro 5 Miler
  • Women’s Mini 10K
  • Squirrel Stampede 10K
  • Poland Spring Kickoff 5M
  • Ted Corbitt 15K

I am insanely proud of myself, and I’m just going to leave it there. Am I worrying about 2018? Of course. I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t.  I’ve revamped the spreadsheet (and added this one) to take into account the monthly increments needed to hit my goals. I think I’ll still call it #GoTheDist even if that appears not to be back for 2018. As I just said to my RTY 2018 teammates:

It’s on like Donkey Kong!

      beginners’ excitement vs. a goal one.
      Have a bit of both this year, but would love to do 9+1 to qualify for NYC for my 40th
