2011 Boxscore Edition

Looking back at my 2011 running boxscore:


  • 2011 was my first full calendar year as a runner
  • Ran 1,280.3 miles
  • Best month was December with 158.8 miles
  • Worst month was May with 56 miles
  • Average miles per month was 106.7
  • Races completed:  4 road 5K's; 1 trail 5 mile; 1 trail half marathon; 1 road half marathon.
  • Coldest run was 2/8/11 at -7F air temp.  I didn't record the wind chill that night.
  • Warmest run was 6/8/11 at 84F air temp.  Wind chill was not a factor ;-)
  • Shoe mileage:
    • Nike Air Peg Trail - 491 miles (494 total miles), most likely retired due to excessive wear in the heel area
    • Asics Cumulus 12 - pair a - 528 miles, still going strong
    • Asics Cumulus 12 - pair b - 179 miles
    • New Balance 876 - 82 miles, took the Nike Air Peg's place

Great job!

I noticed that our stats are very similar. Our best and worst months are really close to being the same, and our yearly mileage isn't too far apart either. I record shoe mileage but I did not keep a record of the weather.

Happy New Year! I'm sure 2012 will be amazing for both of us!
