I like Fractions! (I promise this post is about running!)

I never really was into math in school. Sure, the multiplications were cool, and I was a beast at proofs in geometry. But, overall math has never really interested me...until here lately.

I found that I absolutely loooove fractions? Why, you ask? Because, as I am training more and more for this half-marathon in April, I am measuring every mile. Just this last Saturday, I ran nearly 7 miles. Do you know what that means?

That means that I've ran pretty much 1/2 of what I will run the day of the 1/2 marathon, which is 13.1 miles. And when I train during the week, I have to run 1/3 of of 13.1 (3 or 4 miles).  I am getting a handle on this whole math equation of running! 

So, I'm getting better and better at math everyday! I'm really beginning to like fractions!

Won't you do me a favor and donate to Java Joggers, and help out our percentages? (similar to fractions in that it's math related!) :)
