These are the four running/fitness goals I've set to motivate myself during 2020

I’m setting four goals for my running and fitness in 2020, and I decided to set at least two non-time goals because those were the only type of goals that I accomplished in 2019. I’m not as fast as I used to be, and for me, running is more than just fast times. But I … More These are the four running/fitness goals I've set to motivate myself during 2020

I hit all my non-time-based running goals in 2019, and other highlights from the year

The bad news: I’m running more miles, but my times have somewhat stagnated. The good news: I did hit all of the non-time goals I set for myself in 2019. As I look back on 2019, I’d like to focus on the successes. I had my highest-ever mileage year, I had plenty of fun and … More I hit all my non-time-based running goals in 2019, and other highlights from the year

Runner Reads: "26 Marathons" by Meb Keflezighi with Scott Douglas

Runner Reads: "North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail" by Scott Jurek with Jenny Jurek

I started the book “North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail” knowing what would happen at the end. But what led up to that on Scott Jurek’s trek to break the Fastest Known Time record for the Appalachian Trail was interesting to read about. I got this book as a Secret Santa gift … More Runner Reads: "North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail" by Scott Jurek with Jenny Jurek

I ran somewhere new every month in 2019, ending with some Montgomery County trails

Each month of 2019, I’d followed through with my goal and ran in a new-to-me location. But I’d gotten to Christmas Day without running somewhere new in December. I’d been at my aunt and uncle’s house the evening of Christmas and stayed over before heading back to Salisbury the next morning. I was talking to … More I ran somewhere new every month in 2019, ending with some Montgomery County trails

I ran my fastest half of the year at an unofficial race with friends

Neither of the half marathons I’d run for speed in 2019 really went according to plan. In May, at the St. Michaels Running Festival Half Marathon, I kept up a pace of around 10:00/mile for the first six miles before it got hot and my pace decreased. I finished in 2:20:16. Then in September, at … More I ran my fastest half of the year at an unofficial race with friends
