pm edit: so i took a look back at my running one year ago and now am wondering who that person was last year. pretty motivating to read through the whole month (although August 2012 was pretty insane for me as well). i suppose i can get to that kind of mileage again - but i'm not as motivated without some kind of goal. here's to a safe buildup these next few weeks.

a year ago my total mileage for the year up through March 12th was 551.3 miles. this year? 148.1 miles...hi, my name is James, and i'm a hobby jogger...
