I will run 500 miles.....

This year, one of my goals was to run 500 miles.  500 freaking miles!! This was before I decided to sign up for the full marathon this fall. I thought 500 was a good number and it would make me run about 10 miles a week and keep me accountable. OK, I can do that....

Last night was run club so I decided to run to the park again instead of driving. I got in a mile and a half before run club even started. We changed the route up a bit and it still totaled 5 miles. But, since I am competitive against myself, I kept going. I got in 8 miles last night and I felt so good! My pace was  9:02 and I was so happy!  The sun was shining and it was just an awesome night. I came home and looked at my log for MapMyRide and saw that so far this year, I had ran 251 miles. What!? I was already a half way to my goal. Now, I am thinking of changing it to 1000 miles for the year. Can I do it?

I was so pumped to be over 250 miles last night that I laced up again and did 6 miles. Tonight's' pace was 9:18. Another motivator is that I am trying to catch up with Carl's mileage..I am not far behind him! I got goals and plan to crush 'em!

  1. I'm so proud of you and I know you're going to crush your 500 mile goal this year and even break 1000. That's crazy far, by the way - it's 1050 from Columbus to Dallas! xD
