Today I met my goal of running 211 miles in 2011.
In 2009 I ran 188 miles. Last year, a measly 59. So when I saw the challenge of 211 miles in 2011, I knew it was just what I needed to jumpstart my running...again.
This time I vowed it would be different. I would follow the training program faithfully running when scheduled and sticking to the assigned distances. I researched techniques to prevent shin splints and improve muscle strength. Impatience would not overpower me this time.
Today is day 123. I have been loyal to the running schedule and staying healthy. Running is becoming my thing, my passion. I am looking forward to seeing how many miles I can run by the end of the year.
