I’m a few days late, but we just passed the halfway mark for 2015, so I thought it would be a good idea to check in on the running goals I set for 2015 and see how I’m doing.
Volunteer at a race
Not yet. There are a couple I’m looking at, but my schedule is bananas right now, so I’m being commitment phobic.
Run at least 500 miles
Right now I’m at 136 for the year. Not quite where I want to be, but I’ve got time to get there, and I have half marathon training starting in August, which will help a lot.
Run 15 races in 2014
So far I’ve run six races, and I’m already registered for three more, which puts me at nine. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to cram in 6 more races, but we’ll see.
Run a sub-29 5k race
CHECK! I ran a 28:55 on my birthday, which was an awesome present to myself. Time to start chasing a 27:xx 5k!
Run an actual 10k race
I’m registered for the Jaxson’s Dog Days of Summer 10k hosted by RaceVermont on July 25. Barring injuries or illness between now and then, I’ll be able to check this one off the list.
Don’t have any non-running months
So far, so good. Most of my months have been pretty low-mileage, but I haven’t had any non-running months, so I’ll take it!
Participate in the RW Holiday Run Streak
Still on the docket, but if it’s a particularly wet or icy early winter, I’ll probably bag it, since I don’t want to get hurt.
Not bad for the first half of the year. I’m excited to see where the rest of the year takes me!
How are you doing on your 2015 running goals?
