February vs. March

What a difference a month can make. 

My Easter lakefront run 3/31/13
Since I was injured, February was mostly about cross training.... 
Skiing on Montrose Ave. 2/22/13
Or short runs with really fun breaks....
Chicago Running Blogger meetup at Half Acre Brewery 2/23/13
Whereas March was more about...

Long runs in search of ice pancakes...
Lakefront 3/3/13
Running an Actual Race...
Get Lucky half marathon 3/16/13
and seeing great sunrises on long runs...
Sunrise over Lake Michigan 3/22/13
But mainly February was mostly about being in "Injury Jail" and March was about feeling like I escaped! 

I'm looking forward to an even better April.

February Days Run: 6
February Total Mileage: 21

March Days Run: 28
March Total Mileage: 178

  1. Wow, that's quite a jump in mileage! I'm glad you were able to get more runs in, but you probably needed more brewery breaks this month too (I think we all do!). I'm off to enjoy my own holiday run in a bit. Happy Easter to you!

    1. Yes, maybe too much of a jump? I guess I am trying to control my running urges, but still may be over-doing it. Would love another brewery break. Maybe post 4/15? Hope you had a good run. Happy Easter!
