So I ran a mile every day this year. At least. One of those days I ran nearly 62 (it was after midnight when I finished). Some days, I struggled to get that one mile. I ran in place in front of the tv several times. I used the track at the gym. But I ran.
Through a website I use, my mileage total for this year is around 1,320. That's running only, not hiking or biking or chasing a 5 year old around.
It's been a rough year for me. I made some mistakes, and I lost a bit of me on that path. I'm still feeling the bite of that loss, but I'm proud of the good things I have done this year.
Right now, I'm not sure what I'm going to do differently next year. Just go through one day at a time, see what paths open up to me, and hope that I feel a little better each day.
I don't think I will continue the mile a day thing. I'll keep getting outside and keep finding things to move me forward. It's all any of us can do.
