Yesterday my mouse was hovering over THIS button all day:
I am thisclose to registering. The only reason I haven’t yet is because October 5, 2014 sounds so far away! It’s hard for me to even think 3 months down the road let along almost a whole year.
I know this race sells out fast so I really need to make a final decision. The RD recently said they expect the full marathon to sell out in March or April.
I was reading through some of my older blog posts yesterday and read something that made me smile:
On Nov. 25th of last year MY GOAL was to be able to run 2 miles in 35 minutes.
What does this mean? Almost exactly one year ago today I was really, really slow! : ) I’m glad I went and looked at old posts because it made me pretty happy to see what I’ve accomplished since last Nov.
Back then I really couldn’t even imagine running a half marathon. I was only thinking “how the hell will I ever be able to run 3.1 miles and finish a 5k?!” It was really stressing me out! That seems kind of funny now.
It’s a good reminder to always set big goals that seem unachievable because we can most definitely achieve them!
What were your running goals this time last year?
What are your running goals for 2014?
