I’m so far away from my personal record times that I am just not in a place to go for PRs right now. However, I did set a goal for 2021 to beat two of my distance times from last year (5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon).

I tried to set a variety of goals — for example, they aren’t all time-based. I am also linking up with Zenaida Arroyo and Kookyrunner (Kim), two fellow BibRave Pros, for … More I’m heading into 2019 with these five running goals
