She Cooks Skinny

a peek into my life in the kitchen


#mileaday 2012


loved this challenge. 40 days of running {I missed 2}. Thanksgiving to New Years. I ran in the heat, cold, thunderstorms, freezing rain. I ran when I was sick, tired, happy, short on time, in a bad mood. I ran really early in the morning, or late in the afternoon, and a couple of night runs. I ran fast miles, and slooooow miles. I ran just 1 mile at times, mostly ran 3 milers, 8 was my longest run, I did 98 miles in all, 2 short from my goal of 100. Stuart ran just one mile with me {the scariest mile ever, in a thunderstorm}.

This was such a fun journey. I honestly didn’t think that I would actually make it the whole forty days! But I am so proud of myself that I did. I also found out that I loved having to stop and take a picture of my legs and shoes. By having to stop and look down I became well aware just how lucky I am that I can go out and run everyday if I wanted to.

I am going to give myself a little break from the mile a day, but might do it again for a month… or maybe I’ll find a new challenge!

Any suggestions!?
