>Look What I Can Do!>What a year!
I can run a dozen miles at once.
Today, for the first time, I ran 12 miles without stopping. Last year, I couldn't run more than 1 mile!
Last year, I ran a 10:30mm pace for that one mile at a HR of 175. Today I ran each mile at a 8:45 pace with a HR of 135.
I just signed up for my first full marathon. And I turn 40 in 2 weeks. Take that, middle age!

Good job. I bet in another year you'll look back and say wow, I couldn't have believed I could have gotten here.
2013 goals: Kick some arse. Moreso than 2012.

That is terrific! That is a lot of progress in one year :-) (Sounds like me too, fairly new to running, age 39.5, and the miles I can do keep going up, up, up :-)
Which full marathon are you doing, and when?
The Plan (the big parts)→ /// April 20th: 24 Hour Race Hampton, VA (PR of 76.25 Miles) /// May 19th: Three Days at the Fair (12 Hour) in NJ (PR of 55 MIles) /// Sep 21st: NC-24 Hour Race in Ohio /// Nov 23rd: JFK-50 in MD /// Dec 31st: Peanut Island (12 Hour) in FL /// ∞
Awesome! You go!
Big, hairy, unrealistic goals: 2:39:59, 15:59, 9:59, 4:39. Mara PR in Boston would be nice, too.
Wow, that's a whole lot of progress in one year! LOL@take that middle age! The 40's will be your best decade yet. :-)
All young people feel boxed in, but what you do with the wiggle room that you have, will define who you become.
