January Miles

6.                  Participate in a 5K/10K… and a 1/2 marathon.

Okay, is this blog turning into just running?  I need to branch out on my list.  :)  But I did participate in the Tartan Trot 10K  this weekend as I prep for my half marathon coming up in March.  (Just one more 5K to go until then!)  It was a brutally hilly course I thought, and a lot of the pavement was graded, which made me feel like I was running on cobblestones - not fun.  Although I trimmed off a little over 2 minutes off my PR for a 10K, I didn't make my goal of 2 minutes shorter than that - but I was still really happy!  That is, until they posted the official results, and stopped listing any results about 6 minutes before I crossed the finish.  They are "looking into it" for me.  I hope it is just an error, and that no one assumed that anyone as slow as my time would not bother to look at the results!  ;)

16.                  Exercise for a total of 500 miles.

I'm also happy to say that in January I picked up more miles than I've done in a few months, edging back up to the higher numbers.  I put in 41 miles this month, and I am heading ever closer to Anneliese in Chicago metaphorically.  After hovering around Murfreesboro, TN for two months, I have now flown past Nashville and my friend Cheri, and I am almost to the Kentucky line!   As I head into Kentucky in February, I'll be looking for my friend Drew who lives there.  Looking forward to waving as I go!  Just so you know, this means I've put in 281.4 miles since I started my trek to Chicago, and I have 459.6 to go to get to Anneliese.  But - with my goal of 500 miles, I "only" have 218.6 to go.  She might have to metaphorically drive to meet me!  :)
