My Second Runniversary

Filed under: Check-it-out, Contests, Running, Wolf Pack, Wolfson Literary

Today is officially my 2nd Runniversary!!!! I have been a runner for two years now and I’m very proud of that. Running was never an activity that I enjoyed, but if you know me personally or read my blog you now that it has come to be many things to me, including a personal, physical challenge and a creative outlet. I’ll be honest, one of the things that brought me to running was the technology. I’m a bit of a feedback freak and Nike’s gadgets for tracking information, allowed me to run outside and still get the info that I craved. It truly won me over. So, to celebrate my competitive nature, here are my stats…

In two years I have gone on 122 runs for a grand total of 94 hours and 40 minutes. ย I have run 585.25 ย miles and burned ย 57,859 calories. Woo hoo!!!!

What’s your favorite form of exercise? Are you a runner? What do you love and have about hitting the pavement? Have I convinced you to start running????

Also, we have a winner for the ARC of IN A FIX by Linda Grimes!!!! Drum roll please…

Congrats to Abigail from All Things Urban Fantasy!!!!!!!!

*COMING SOON* Watch my blog for a chance to win an ARC of Trish Doller’s SOMETHING LIKE NORMAL.ย

  1. Wow! That’s a lot of running. You rock!

    My favorite exercise? Hmmm. That’s kind of like asking me what my favorite dental procedure is. There are forms of exercise I dislike less than others, but … Wait, does exercise in the boudoir count? When my heart rate increases, I like a better payoff than blisters on my heels. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Congrats to Abigail! And thanks again to you for sharing your ARC of In a Fix. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love running, but I haven’t been able to in years. I have too many problems with my body–back, ankles, knees. So instead I go for low impact stuff like the elliptical or biking outside. Congratulations on your Runnerversary!

    • Awww sorry to hear that you have health issues. I’m doing much better now that I learned how to adjust my stride, but I’m still a frequent flyer at the chiropractor. :o)

  3. Wow, that is weird, I just blogged last week about it being my second year running! I ran my first 5K in May 2010 and have been hooked ever since. Besides the physical payoff, I also find that I am able to work out problems with my manuscripts while running. I am competitive too, and have found myself signed up for a half-marathon in the Fall. The most I have done is a 10K so it will be a challenge, but I am up for it!

    Congrats on your Runniversary!

    • My favorite kind of weird!!!! You are a rock star–I haven’t done a race yet, but I’d like to try it some time. But I do love the head space that comes with the run. <3 Happy Runniversary!!!!

  4. I see your run stats on twitter and envy you! Two years is awesome!

    As for my favorite forms of exercise, you know I love dancing and skating. I love gliding through the air and defying gravity (my coach always says “Enjoy the flight!”) But my latest hamstring injury has had me craving a good run. Who knows? Maybe running is in my future… or it might stay firmly in warm-up category!

    • I’m not a “skater” although classes would be fun. And you know I love dancing so I’m with you. Damn those hammies–they are always being difficult. :o)

  5. Hey Kimmie, you are truly amazing. Wish it ran in the family (ha ha). Send me a copy of your book (if you can). More power to you. You are inspiration to all who know you.

  6. Awww–you’re pretty awesome too! Hope you guys are all doing well. No books available until October 30th! *pouts*

    • Congratulations on the book publishing!!! Will be in NY next week!!

  7. I don’t know if I’m an official runner because I’m slow. ๐Ÿ™‚ According to my 10k time, I’m a jogger/runner. But I’m 54, so I’m glad the knees and body can still handle it.

    I hope you will continue to get the runner’s high and all the other mental and physical benefits of doing so.

    • Anita–DO NOT sell yourself short. You ARE a runner! It’s as much about the heart as it is the feet. Way to go!

  8. That is a lot of running! That is so awesome!

    I am not a runner at all, I wish I was – Instead my exercise of choice is definitely dance ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Congrats on the Runniversary!
