One year ago today I started running.  Well, actually for the first three months I hardly clocked any mileage.  It seemed I could only run a half a mile at a time in the early months.  As I have tracked my miles I see that I have run 1,027 miles in this first calendar year of my run.

During my running year, I started in October with the Palm Springs Tram Challenge, then on Thanksgiving I ran a 5 k.  Starting in January I ran my first half marathon.  Since January I have 7 half marathons under my belt and tomorrow will be number 8 in Long Beach.  I am scheduled for 4 more this year…San Diego, San Jose, Santa Barbara and Las Vegas.  In January I start the year with running another half marathon at Disneyland with my daughter.

I want to thank Alba for encouraging me to run and coaching me.  Even my daughter has run 3 races with me, and will also be running with me in San Jose, Las Vegas and of course Disneyland.

If you would have asked me a year ago if I thought I could do it I would have said no way…I am not a runner.  But with determination and hard work, you can accomplish anything!
