Today my Nike+ page turned blue. That means that since I’ve been using Nike+ I’ve run 1000km!!!
Most of that has been this year. I started running again in March. Since then I’ve run 877km. I should tip over 900km for 2012 and next year I’m sure I’ll get well over an annual total of 1000km if I survive my marathon and stay healthy.
I’m living proof that you don’t need to be anything special to be a runner. You just need a decent pair of trainers and the will to go out and do it.
If you’re looking for a New Year resolution, and if you can, you could do worse than signing up for a race somewhere and hitting the road. You’ll be glad you did. I am.
