I knew Reed would kill me!  Here's a look at his mileage:

July 125 Miles
August 135 Miles
September 125 Miles
October 120 Miles

I knew Reed It's not as many miles as many marathon trainers, but for me, my feet have already survived more miles than I thought they ever would.

In October I recorded just over 110 miles, averaging about 25 miles per week.  In Septemer, a little less at 104 miles.  In August, Reed and I were just starting to get serious, with 73 miles.  I started recording my runs in mid-July, so for half of July a total of 32 miles (averaging 15-20 miles per week). 

As you can see, the runs got longer and longer.  From 8 and 10 mile runs in August, to 14 and 17 mile runs in September, to 19 and 20 mile runs in October.  Now, down to one final 26.2 mile run on Sunday. 

All total for my training, I've added up 329.69 miles of jogging over the last 3 1/2 months.  Averaging 20-25 miles per week.  Again, it's not up there with many marathoners, but I'm just a beginner who's just wanting to finish standing up - we'll see about that! 

Stay tuned for the next blog entry... how we found time to run all those miles.
