1,000 Miles

DRC-10k-croppedI hit a great milestone recently… I’ve run over 1,000 miles since starting running.  It wasn’t long ago, nearly a couple of years that my daughter asked me to run in a 1 mile fun run.  Nothing sounded fun about that run.  I had to say no.  I love that I don’t have to say no anymore.

As always, I’ve got to give props to my running sister, Denise.  She’s my biggest inspiration.  There isn’t a run that goes by that I don’t think of her.  Running and smiling are synonymous thanks to her!

How do I keep track of all of those miles?  I use a Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Watch and an awesome shareware application: SportTracks. This software has been the best in showing information about a recent run, progress over the months, and of course the price is right.

I’m looking forward to my first marathon in December!
