Last week I finally hit my goal. For the last number of years I set a goal of running 1000 miles in a year, and the closest I’ve ever gotten was 820. But this year on December 6th I hit that 1000 mile mark. I wish I could say that it was a gorgeous trail and beautiful day and I enjoyed it, but the reality was that mile 1000 was obtained on the treadmill because it was very cold and windy that day and it was just a better place to run out those last few miles.
I know there are people who run 10 times what I did in a year, but I also know 1000 miles is no small feat and something I am quite proud of. I’ve already got a trail marathon on the books for the spring and so I’m hoping I’ll be clocking another 1000 miles next year too.
