With my 32th (holy shit!) birthday approaching, decided to challenge myself. My goal is to run 100 miles in 30 days.
I was suppose to make running a habit for 2013. I ran a bit in Austin but I was always coming up with excuses to avoid running.
I find it’s easier to accomplish a big goal when you break it down into smaller achievements. So I’m starting by challenging myself to run 100 miles in 30 days. For you non-math wizards, that’s 3.33 miles a day on average, but that means I have to run every day based on that math.
I’m pretty damned determined to achieve this. I’m tracking my daily running on a public Google doc to hold myself accountable. If you see I’m not running daily, feel free to publicly shame me.
I know the last stretch is going to be rough (just three days in and I’m already feeling the pain) so I’m trying to run an extra mile the first two weeks so I have a bit of a buffer come the final stretch.
For my Facebook peeps - I hope my Nike updates don’t bug. If they do become annoying (totally understandable), just click the upper righthand corner of the update to ignore future Nike updates.
When May 26 does arrive, I’ll probably need a new pair of running shoes, if anyone is thinking of getting me a birthday present. (size 11 1/2 or 12, depending on the brand).
