Maggie is getting ready for the one-mile race in June. The first day of practice she ran 1/3 of a mile; the second day she ran 1/2 mile; the third day she ran 5/8 of a mile. Which is closest to her total mileage for the three days?

1/3 = 8/24

1/2 = 12/24

5/8 = 15/24

8/24 + 12/24 + 15/24 = 35/24 = 1 11/24
