I ran with my Garmin watch for the first time one year ago yesterday. It was a Christmas present from Jordan, and I love it. Definitely worth the money. It keeps a history of all my workouts, and that's how I know that in the past 365 days, I have:
run 144.2 miles
in 24 hours, 13 minutes, and 43 seconds
and burned 16,739 calories
That's not even counting the times I've run on a treadmill either during a winter blizzard or the 100+-degree heat of summer. I know there are many who've run longer and farther than that. But it's more than I ran in 2010. They say running is addictive, and I'm beginning to believe it.
Which brings me to my motto for 2012:
I run so I can eat dessert.
Can I get an amen?
Here's to 145 miles and 17,000 calories.
