Prior to 2005, I didn&#39;t track mileage and ran at most 3 times a week for about 2-5M each time for the previous 5 years (2000-2004) as I was more focused on weight lifting at tennis in this period. Estimate that I ran about 3,000 miles total prior to making running my central athletic focus in 2005.</p> <p>Mileage pre 2005: 3,000 miles (est.)</p> <p>Mileage 2005-2006: 3,878 miles (Coolrunning.com)</p> <p>Mileage 2007-2016: 34,409&nbsp;miles (2963 - &#39;07, 3706 - &#39;08, 3760 - &#39;09, 3659 - &lsquo;10, 3725 - &#39;11, 3468 &ndash; &rsquo;12, 3256 &ndash; &rsquo;13, 3395 &ndash; &rsquo;14, 3306 &ndash; &rsquo;15, 3171 &ndash; &lsquo;16)</p> <p>Mileage to date 2017: 3,104&nbsp;miles (12/31/17).&nbsp; Ran the equivalent distance from New Meadows, ID to Key West, FL!</p> <p>Total lifetime miles: &nbsp;44,392&nbsp;miles</p> Sun, 31 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Dec 30, 2017 http://Jeff.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-30-2017.html <p>6am...6 miles with Moxie, then 6 more solo on a warmish but windy morning (temps cooling the longer I ran, started off at 43 degrees).&nbsp; (Mirage 2017)</p> Sat, 30 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Dec 29, 2017 http://Jeff.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-29-2017.html <p>6:20am...6 miles with Moxie, then 2 more solo on a warm and breezy morning.
