March's Madness

What’s in a month? A foot of snow; record lows; record highs; the season’s first lawn mowing; my baby rolling over; my baby eating rice cereal; my dog getting a bath; and a visit from the in-laws. What’s in a month? Two races I’ve well documented; 70 total running miles; 11.8 walking miles; 20.7 biking miles; and 7.1 “other” miles on the elliptical. Total miles: 109.6.

Sure enough, March has been a mad (in a good way) month. It’s been fantastic in my eyes, especially when I think about where I was a year ago (when I obviously was lacking creativity with a headline for March's summary). There’s really nothing more I can say about it.

For a quarterly report, things are shaping up nicely for 2009. I’m a little off my non-running goals, but my pace for running miles is well ahead of my goal. And, honestly, that’s what I was hoping for, but didn’t want to be too optimistic start this year.

For the first three months of the year, I’ve logged 205.4 running miles; 40.9 walking miles; 67 biking miles; and 30.5 “other” miles. Total exercising miles (not including those pesky stairs at work): 343.8.

So far, so good.
