I have one little task on my to-do list that I have been putting off…and putting off…..and, well you get the idea. And…surprisingly it’s the one thing that I have been so dedicated to keeping up with – working out…specifically running!
Over a decade ago, I was at the 20 mile mark for my marathon training. I completed a half marathon in mid-November 2008, ran 16 miles on Thanksgiving Day, and was set to run 20 miles with the training group in the beginning of December 2008. Then, I just got burnt out – which is understandable by non-runners, and totally unacceptable by fellow marathon trainees. I continued to work out and run leisurely, but not with the same consistency and longevity as when I was training.
So, 2024 is my marathon year. I’m up to 4.5 miles since the beginning of this year. And a full year of training feels very doable considering I have an old foot injury that flared up when I first began running again this year.
The time is NOW to get back in the swing of running…for miles, and miles, and miles!
