Wow. 1000 miles this year. I'm sure I'll have a more thought provoking and insightful post in my year-end recap, but for now, I'll just say that it's really cool. I haven't run that many miles in a single year since...I'm guessing...1996. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if I'd barely run 1000 miles total since then.
I headed for the Commons this afternoon, and a real good test of my screw shoes. They worked great, and I never worried about slipping despite the fact that the trails are completely frozen over. There's about 4 inches of frozen slush covering everything. Felt good...but...I'm way off on my training plan for the 10-mile race. Maybe I'll just jog the 10 miles.
