Since I also run a lot of miles at a relatively easy-for-me pace, I’ve been spending a lot of time on the roads and trails. … More February: Shortest month of the year, highest monthly mileage ever logged!
I started December by hitting my goal of 2,018 kilometers for the year, and I ended it with my highest-ever monthly mileage. So, December was pretty good when it came to running! I ran 97.96 miles.
