Our holiday so far has been a hot [38.5 degrees Celsius (101.3 degrees Fahrenheit) on Christmas Day] and sick (my chest is on fire and I'm coughing my lungs out) affair.
But, instead of lamenting, I thought I'd share with you my running stats for 2014. They're not outstanding in any way, but for a new mama of two, and with everything else that went on in 2014, I think they're okay. Plus they make a great baseline to improve on next year, right?
Here they are:
Total kilometres logged: 575 km (of which 49% were solo runs, 36.3% were single stroller runs, and 14.7% were double stroller runs). More stroller mileage than solo mileage, whoop!
Number of races completed: Seven (including four road races and three trail races, one of which was a night race).

Number of PRs clocked: One, by three minutes and fifteen seconds, during the Fish River Half-Marathon in Keetmanshoop, Namibia. My previous half-marathon PR stood for four years...!
Number of parkruns completed: Eleven. After being oblivious to all things parkrun for way too long, I did my first one in Cape Town on 8 March 2014. The rest, as they say, is history - I'm hooked for life!

And with that, we say so long to 2014. Here's to an outstanding year of running for all of us in 2015!
