February running: 65.6 miles
Also, 185.3 miles on the bike and 11.4 miles swimming.
Feb miles : 107.6
Ok, even when one's total mileage is just short of NOTHING, one should post anyway, just because maybe it will motivate one to do better the following month, right?
Soooo, I did only 24 miles in Feb. (insert very red face here)
However, March is off to a better start. Finished up the Tennessee Running Tour with a 15K on Saturday, and got out there this morning in frigid windy temps and did 5 miles.
Thanks for holding me accountable Carolyn!

I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.
Thanks, Carolyn! It's always fun to see this summary for the past month. And you sure are racking up some incredible miles these days. Nice job!
Thanks Carolyn! Congrats to everyone and especially Orange Mat, whose running just keeps improving.

Thanks for the work you put into the tallying/summaries and recognition. I really look forward to this thread each month and getting an overall piciture of the accomplishments.
Did I mention that I got nothing?
Three more miles and you would have gotten a prime number award! I purposely went for a prime number to get an award --- even though they're my own awards.... kinda lame, I know.
