Getting closer

Almost two weeks ago I set the goal of having new running shoes by the end of the year. That means that I have to have 300 miles total on the shoe in 5 weeks. I have already logged 17.6 miles since I set the goal simply because I set it. I want to earn the new shoes since they are so expensive. It is such great motivation for me to have this goal. The math works out that if I do 4 miles on the days I have planned I will hit my goal in about a week and a half. If I have off days like I have been having lately and only get in 1.5 - 2.5 miles it will take me all month. I think it is this freezing cold weather that is setting me back the most. 1 degree is no fun to even walk to your car in much less actually work out in.
Isn't it weird to look forward to 35 degree days?
All I want is for the snow to melt so I can hit the trail again.


  1. Wow, I love that goal! I need to set a goal like that when I can start working out again.

  2. here's some fun good news: you can run in yack tracks... and under 10F, I would get a neoprene face shield... actually, with some snow underfoot, your shoes will get hardly any abrasion wear, so you can probably stretch them a little further.

  3. I can't imagine running in that cold! BRR! I thought I was dying today rnnning in 30 something degree weather, LOL. I'm spoiled I guess.

    Merry Christmas! Hope it was a great one :)
