The first 50 miles
Back in January, I made a promise:
Log 500 miles over the course of 2012.
Well, today I reached my first milestone, if you will. Mile marker 50.
50 miles in by January 21st. That’s not a bad start to the year. I know with my crazy race schedules I’ll have to cut back on mileage at points, so having 50 in before the first month is even out is amazing. It felt so great to log the last 4.1 miles I needed to reach 50 this morning. And I was so damn proud of myself for doing it too.
I admit, getting up sometimes to get in even a mile isn’t always easy. There are days the last thing I want to do is lace up my shoes and log a run. But I always feel better after I do it. And I think it’s that feeling that keeps me going, that makes me put on my running shoes and head out.
Today…I’m 1/10 of the way to my goal. Damn…it feels good!
And, yes…it totally makes me want to keep going.
