I can’t wait to run my first
5K, half marathon, marathon, ultramarathon!
When I first started blogging back in early 2013 my goal was to run a 5K. Today I’ve run a handful of 5Ks, nine half marathons and even a full marathon!
My running goals are ever changing, but I do hope to get faster, stronger and to go longer! That’s not too much to ask, right?
Here are my current top five running goals – some of these I hope to accomplish very soon while others I hope to complete within a year or two.
- Run more full marathons!
- Reach 2:45 in the half marathon
- Run a sub-36 minute 5K
- Run a 50K
- Run a 50-miler
My big pie-in-the-sky, super long term goal is to run a 100-miler someday. That’s more of a wish or a dream rather than something I think could actually happen since I am a slow runner and probably wouldn’t meet the cut-off times – but I LOVE long runs. The only reason I do speed work is so that I can ensure I meet the cut off times for the ultramarathons that I hope are in my (near-ish) future!
There’s just nothing like the feeling of a long run!
I also have a running bucket list of races and other goals that I would love to accomplish someday!
