Running by the Numbers

12 months ago I started training for my 5th marathon

9 months ago I made my marathon playlist

100 songs to inspire me to put one foot in front of the other for a grueling 5+ hours

8 months ago I took a 5 minute dirt bike ride that ended with 1 broken collarbone

6 months ago I took my sling off and discovered that my bones had healed, but my shoulder was frozen solid

50 hours of physical therapy later...

1 hour ago I laced up my running shoes, put on my headphones, hit play on my ipod and started training again for my 5th marathon.  As I ran listening to my marathon playlist the songs were both familiar and new just like my run.  5 months from now I sure hope they inspire me to run another 26.2 miles.
