This wasn’t the running year I wanted or expected, but it’s coming to a close regardless. My mileage and total number of runs were both low, but I can absolutely say I’ve rested! Nothing hurts and I feel more refreshed than I would have expected.
I’m starting to put together a race schedule for 2015. I’ve already decided to run the Sybil Ludington 50k in April, which will get my training back on track and give me an early-ish race to look forward to. As of this moment I also play to attempt 50 miles again and I’m eyeing some races in Pennsylvania to get that goal accomplished. I’m also looking closer to home at more timed runs, which I just enjoy the hell out of.
I put my name in a drawing for a slot in the 2015 NYC marathon. They are announcing winners in the next three weeks; I’ve never been chose via lottery before, so we’ll see what happens.
Something I didn’t do at all this year was volunteer. I enjoy volunteering and basically time just got away from me and I neglected to sign up to do it. I’m going to set a goal for 2015 of volunteering at least three times. I think that’s totally doable in between my own races.
Here’s to 2015! I’m looking forward to a fresh start!
