100 Miles

The heading at the top of my runkeeper profile looks something like this tonight:

43 Total Activities 100 Total Miles 11,663 Calories Burned

I've been tracking my runs with since April 4, which means over the course of 107 days or about 3 1/2 months, I have run 100 miles! I can't believe this all started just a few months ago with a surprise request from my friend Karen. I would have never thought I would be remotely interested in running, but it has become quite the hobby. Last night I ran just over 4 miles, only the second time ever I have gone that distance, and it pushed me up to the 100 mile mark.

Lots of people run, and lots of people run a lot more miles in a shorter amount of time than I have, but I wonder if any of them hated running as much as I did before I began. I really never thought I would do this. So it amazes me still when I think about it, and I admit I am proud of my accomplishment.

Here's to the next 100 miles. It may not even take another 3 1/2 months (if Karen keeps making me up my distance.)

way to go Becky!! Still not sure if I will turn into a runner, but I sure do like seeing those numbers tick up on my RunKeeper as well. Great job!

(p.s. give Elaine a hug for me this weekend -- I'm not going to be able to make their shower ....)
