2012km in 2012

So, for 2012 I decided to set a distance target for the year. Previously I managed about 500 miles in 2011, so wanted to set myself a good target to aim for – with this in mind I decided to celebrate the year with 2012km in 2012.

For those who speak imperially, or run in miles (as I do) that is 1250.2 miles in the year.

That’s:
104.18 miles per month
24.04 miles per week
3.42 miles per day

In addition, it is also the equivalent of running (in a direct line) between London and Sofia, Bulgaria. The route of which can be seen in this image taken from google earth.
