The Year in Running 2014

For the 2nd year in a row I have made my goal of 30 miles per week. This year I decided to include the extra day as well--52 weeks times 7 days is 364 days, so there is an extra 1/7 of a week to account for.

I did a total of 1582 1/2 miles in 208 hours, 40 minutes and 37 seconds; for an overall pace of 7:55

1136 was with shoes at a pace of 7:58 and 446 was barefoot at a pace of 7:47.

I was faster this year than last and ran a few more miles as well, but ran about 100 miles fewer in the barefoot mode. A little surprising that I was faster since barefoot runs are much faster than runs with shoes.

I Already Liked The Lego Movie but this sealed the deal

[in slow dreamy voice]
Lucy: ... blah, blah, blah. Proper name. Place name. Backstory stuff...
Emmet: Mmm-hmmm
Lucy: [in normal voice] ... is the Special. The Special...
[in slow dreamy voice]
Lucy: ... I'm so pretty. I like you. But I'm angry with you for some reason...
Emmet: Mmm-hmmm
Lucy: [in normal voice] ... put the Piece of Resistance onto the Kragl and disarm it forever!
Emmet: Great. I think I got it. But just in case... tell me the whole thing again, I wasn't listening.
