What a great Resolution Race 5k this morning.  The wind was a killer it was so strong, it nearly at times would almost push you over.  My 5k ended up being a hair short of a 5k.  I ran 2.80 miles in 24.37.  I couldn't believe when I looked at my Garmnin, that I had  ran it at a 8.47 pace.  Holy Moly, Never ran that fast before.  Starting out my leg were feeling so heavy and tight, but once I found my rhythm it was all good. My leg were still feeling the effect from the 13.50 miles yesterday.

Great Resolution Race this morning with all the girls.

For 2011, I ended up running 1127 miles.  What an amazing year in my running  journey.
February- was my lowest miles at 53
September- was the highest miles at 163
