10 more miles...

...until I hit 1200 for the year. Amazing how a goal can pull you forward! In March I set the goal of 1000 miles for the year, and at that time I was "behind" being on track for that. Now I'm at a weekly average for the year of 27 miles per week. As I look at the numbers I feel kinda like, "Really? Have I really gone that far?" But I know I've tracked well and guess what? If you run consistently, the miles add up.

Speaking of running consistently, I'll be following the SF One Day race tomorrow. It's where people run for 12 or 24 hours and see how many miles they can complete. I'm oddly fascinated by stuff like this, but don't read too much into it, ok? I'm still scared of doing the marathon, much less going any further than that!

Finally, here are some Halloween images that made me smile:

Once a math geek, always a math geek, right?

South Beach treats, anyone?

Sad, but true...

Kim -- I set a goal of 1000 and look where it's gotten me. I'll be interested to see what happens if you set a goal next year -- I'll bet it will pull you forward too!

Colette -- Thanks! The pic of us on the sidebar is fun and I like it, even though I'm carrying about 25 extra pounds there. :)
