Finished St. Louis Rock and Roll Marathon


I love running!

I started running seriously in 2011.  I thought it would be fun to do something unique and share this experience with the running community, so in 2013 I started the 11315 miles blog.  What this blog is:  A fun place to chronicle my running/biking/walking journey with a goal of completing 11,315 miles.

The blog is dedicated in honor of my mother  Karen Ellen Dennis Mastromonico who lived for 11,315 days.  One mile for each day.  This is a chronicle of those miles, my life on the run so-to-speak.  So far it has been a fantastic life changing journey.

I hope you enjoy it and would love to hear your comments.

Happy Miles to You:)

  1. I quit smoking a year ago January. I hadn’t run in over 20 years. In July of 2013 I joined the gym and worked my way from a 19 minute walking mile to a 10:30 jogging mile. Running is so amazing. Here’s to your journey Laurel!


  2. Laurel, I really enjoy your blog and the meaning behind it. It’s a wonderful tribute to your mother and helps you keep your own life in perspective. I am pleased to see you have a new bike. I cannot run any more but enjoy cycling a lot. It is easier on the knees and, quite frankly, more fun. Keep at it.
