500 MILES!!!

I did it! 500 miles! Woohoo. I have logged 500 miles on Nike+ since January. I can only log miles if I am doing a dedicated run in my shoes with my iPod. There were many runs where I forgot it, but I'm only counting the runs I logged. In January, my average mile was 18 minutes. I could barely walk up the stairs. Last month I ran 68 miles with an average pace of 11'07 min/mi. I know that isn't very fast, but look how far I have come! I have a healthy body now. 500 miles prove it.

I'm proud of you, Shelby. That's quite an accomplishment. Too bad you didn't bathe until you hit the 500 mile mark, but it's still neat.

Shelby, you have passed my up. I'm only in the 400's. You are an inspiration to me. I've got to step it up.

Seriously, so blessed! said...

YOU GO, SHELBS!

I am so impressed. Running of all horrible things . . .and a half marathon next month? What are you doing to do after that? Have bamboo shoots shoved under your fingernails?

Shelby, that is an amazing feat in and of itself but then you add the fact that you are suffering from apophyses of the hip and pelvis and you really are an inspiration.

Wow. 500 miles of boredom. I would rather be eaten to death by rabid squirrels. Good on ya mate.
