(In order of date...)
9 miles - Dec. 5, 2009 - My first full lap around White Rock Lake - It was freezing cold with high winds coming off the lake, but I was determined to finish it. I was alone, no music, no water, no GU, no Garmin, nothing. I didn't have any of that stuff then and didn't know any better!
13 miles - Apr. 5, 2010 - Training run - I cannot omit this run because this was the day my friend, Karen, asked me if I would do her long run with her to help her prepare for her half marathon. I was glad to take her up on the opportunity. I chose the path, and the goal mileage was 10. I got us completely lost... completely... it was insanity, and we ended up finding our cars after 13 miles. I laughed and laughed (even though I feared Karen would never speak to me again), and I was also shocked how good I felt.
8 miles - Apr. 13, 2010 - Training Run - A friend challenged me to 100 miles in 20 days... I did it! This was the run that was the final 8 miles on day 20 of the challenge.
13 miles - May 2, 2010 - Heels and Hills Half - I had just run a half-marathon 3 weeks before, but the stars aligned, the weather was perfect, and I felt great... this was my PR race (and still holding). Time 2:19. It was also the final day of a 39 day running streak totalling 182 miles.
8 miles - Jun 15, 2010 - Training run - I was on vacation in Virginia and was proud of myself for getting up early and pushing through an 8 mile run that had me zig-zagging down way too many small streets in my hometown. It was just a new environment... It was odd to have this new me in my old town.
14 miles - Sept. 4, 2010 - Training run - My first time running more than a half marathon, and I felt great. I ran the whole thing with my friend, Robin, and she kept me on pace.
I think I did 101 miles, but I'm not going to dare edit this list. It is what it is. And there you have it!
