December Boomer Miles and 2007 Totals (Read 1110 times)

    Back on CR there was a tradition of posting our running/walking miles for the month on the “Boomer Miles” thread. (You can see the thread from last month here: ) January will be a good time to start new traditions in our new home under new management. But before we do, let’s finish business for 2007! When you are done running for the month, be sure to post: 1. your total mileage for the month (indicate if this was a PR) 2. any race PR’s (include distance and time) 3. your miles for 2007 (Is this a PR for you? Let us know how the running year went for you) NOTE: If you were known by another name at CR, please mention that so I can enter your data properly and so I don't include your previous name on the "wish you were here" list. I'm easily confused. Background for newcomers: At the end of each month, Boomers are required to note how many miles (or kilometers) they have run that month. You must be 40+ years old and run or walk at least 1 mile to be eligible. Sorry, only running and walking numbers are counted. Figuring out a way to incorporate cross-training numbers would cause my head to explode. The deadline is midnight EST on the 2nd of the new month. The numbers are tallied and posted (usually on the 3rd) in a simple analysis that includes various awards, serious and silly. No matter how few or how many miles you have, please post! Every mile is an accomplishment.

      Thanks for doing this, Tramps! My mileage is still very low, but this will encourage me to run as much as I can. Teresa

                            Hi Everyone I did not post my miles in the CR Boomers so this my first time, please be gentle Wink. December 122 running miles. 2007 1512 running miles. Smile No PR's to report. I also averaged about 10 miles a week walking the neighborhood in the evening so approx. 500 miles walking. Thanks Tramps

                            Courage ! Do one brave thing today...then run like hell.

                              Thanks Tramps! December: 195.5 miles 2007: 2205.7 miles - a PR year for me over 1688 last year, which was a PR then as well

                              Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

                              Trails are hard!

                                Hi Tramps, Thanks for the last hurrah. For me (aka kameele) 31.7 miles for the month to reach a total of 430 miles for the year. Guess that's a PR since I didn't start running until March of 2006 Wink Kevin

                                Need a fast half for late fall.  Then I need to actually train for it.
