Mike, great to have you posting here - building counts! (you don't see fat carpenters).
Pam, I envy your weather, although ours was pretty good - I don't like reading "second warmest December on record" - but it does make outdoor running more fun!
Just got back from a 3.2 mile run -
SW I love the idea of toting up my miles for the year! Sounds like some amazing ones to start 2012
The first three miles were nice and pretty fast for me - its a hilly area near my home, and I was pleased with myself to come back in and see I'd been less than half an hour at this distance. Since I had more time, I drank a glass of water and headed back out - but chose the suicide hill, it's straight up (the top is the highest point in Boston City Limits - didn't make it there - I got to the next corner, and figured, I'll turn right, and then it will angle down - no it doesn't - more up! I ended up walking the last portion, but that felt great!
Happy New Year!
