440 Miles

In the past year, I've run 440 miles.

121.87 hours.

0.02 times around the world.

A year ago today, I ran 2.2 miles with an average pace of 12:16 minute/mile. Today I ran 2.3 miles with an average pace of 10:46 minute/mile. I don't think my running has gotten faster, but I have gone from alternating 2 minutes of running and 2 minutes of walking, to walking 1 minute out of every 10.

Not every mile has been fun or felt great, but I don't regret a single one. In fact, I'd love to increase my mileage now that I have a solid base! God-willing, I'd love to run 520 miles by next March 29. I think an average of 10 miles per week is totally do-able!


  1. wow! that's a lot of miles! isn't it fun to think of it that way?!

  2. Little 2-3 mile runs can really add up! It's good motivation that every little bit helps.
