January was only 4.7 miles off my highest mileage month ever (last March) coming in at 271.4 miles!
While I definitely considered going out on that second run tonight to get me over into the new monthly high, I just decided that I would rather save those 5 miles for February. I have a feeling February is going to be right there too and with it being a short month, it needs the extra mileage help. So instead of moving my planned double to today, I am eating crackers in my pajamas blogging and getting ready for tomorrow’s run.
But back to the monthly recap…
I always like January. It’s “cold” (well it usually is, I think Mother Nature missed the memo and cold being relative to California), it’s a fresh start to a new year and it’s the month I was born… which means cake!
Then ran a beautiful 22 mile trail race the next weekend. I also ran a 21 and 23 miler in January… that helped boost the miles!
I celebrated saying goodbye to my 20’s with a run with the best friends a girl could ask for.
I said hello to my 30’s with an excessive amount of wine and cupcakes.

I ran another race – this time a half marathon, the day after a 23 miler, which is my biggest back to back weekend yet.
Definitely a good way to start off 2012.
How was your January?!
