2017 Running Stats

December 31, 2017

I have much to be thankful this year in regards to my running. I started off the year with a hip injury that wouldn’t go away and was 100% convinced I was going to have to have surgery on it in order to fix it. One year later I am completely pain free and so grateful to be healthy and continuing to work towards my running goals. With 10 months off of running, I didn’t quite get the mileage in I would have liked, but thankfully this summer resulted in a lot of fun and memorable training runs and races. Here’s a recap of the year!

Total miles in 2017: 2,040

For comparison:

2016: 2031 miles –> inured for half of the year
