a peachy month

They weren't all pretty.  They weren't all sober.  But I did it -- I ran at least one mile every single day of Lent, and even book-ended it with Mardi Gras and Easter Sunday to round out the streak!  Thanks to the healthy bitches (a super fun facebook group that my friend Jessie started just after the new year) for getting me involved and motivated!
76.35 miles completed during the Lent streak!
On my training logs at BeginnerTriathlete.com, a calendar day will turn a peach color if you've completed a tri-related workout (swim, bike, run) and a darker peach color if you've done any other sport.  For the first time in my life, I was able to turn the entire month a nice solid peach color.  Awesome.

And the best part?  I feel that my running has improved some, I mean, how could it not?!  Many of my runs were only 1 mile long, but as always, 1 mile > 0 miles.  I'm excited that I was able to set and meet this goal.
