Somewhere midsummer, I felt like I needed to set a goal for something. I looked at my running stats for the year, which had been trending up since the beginning of the pandemic, and it looked doable to hit 1000 miles for the year. I told myself, “that’s less than three miles per day!” It seemed achievable in a healthy way without breaking any hips or anything.
I’m proud to say that I hit my goal on December 18th with an easy lap around the hike and bike trail:
Stats for the 1000 miles: 216 runs. 147 hours. 2.8 miles / day. Average speed 6.8 mph or 8:49 min/mi.
What I’m most proud of is that I had no injuries all year. Here’s to many more injury-free years of running to come!
