Last week, I completed quite the feat..I hit 1,000 miles of running for the year.
Originally when I made my goals for 2012, I said I wanted to run 800 miles. Well, after training for a few half marathons and two marathons, I far exceeded my goal of 800. The few weeks before I hit the big 1,000 mark, I had been monitoring my Daily Mile stats. Every mile closer to 1,000 made me even more excited and motivated.
I realized before going on a 16 miler, that I would hit 1,000 miles at mile 9. As soon as I reached mile 9, I stopped, did a little dance, and took a photo.
1,000 miles was an incredible accomplishment for me. I have never run so many miles or trained so hard in my life. The last year of training has really proved to me what my body is capable of, and has given me so much more confidence in myself.
Although every single mile has not been fun or enjoyable, every single mile has been something I am extremely proud of.
Do you have a mileage goal for the year you’re about to exceed? Or a dream mileage goal you’d like to achieve?
Wishing everyone a great week ahead!!
