Now on this fine crisp fifth day of November, I feel out of touch with the enormity of that goal now that it has been surpassed almost 2 months early. I have averaged 100 miles per month. Some months more and some less. Through anemia and a new job and life in general I have kept at it. It feels good to set out to do something and then get er' done!! I am over-estimating that I ran about 50-75 miles in minimal shoes.
As I was running today I was considering what goals would be fitting for 2011. Tentatively its going to be 1500. Lets see if I can make 1200 by the end of this year and then decide for sure about 2011 but that would put me at around 30 miles per week. Totally do-able yet challenging as well considering I have work,children, and other interests.
I love this time of year since it means scheming the 2011 race schedule. Now that is always fun! There is a trail marathon in April that I am considering in Lawrence KS on the way back home to visit.....
The littlest spawn is a bit under the weather and was so disheveled that he fell asleep on daddy. I am working on hanging up those winter lights still as I smile about those 1004 miles so far!! Have you started thinking of goals for 2011 yet? I doubt that I am the only one.
Happy Running friends, oh and go check out the giveaways linked on my sidebar. There are some sweet ones right now!
