Behind the numbers

Tonight's 12-mile run was more than just another long run. It was the longest training run since sometime last summer. Sure I've done a couple of half marathons this year, but no other training run in 2010 has been more than 11 miles. Tonight's run got me to more than 90 miles for the month, giving me a big boost to the second half of the year. Will I hit triple digits for July by the end of Saturday? Maybe.

Tonight's run got me to 601.1 miles for 2010, only 2.8 miles away from beating last year's entire running mileage of 603.9 miles. I'm well on pace to easily pass 1,000 miles for the year.

It's time to keep my head up and keep pushing. I feel like the best is yet to come.
