Congrats on a huge improvement in running down the bunny this year!
Goals: 1)Get my IT Band to cooperate 2) Run lots of trails. 3) Get my back to cooperate.
I am actually insanely proud of myself (I feel kind of conceited saying that) but I never thought I would be able to do what I have done this year. I took over 40 minutes off of my marathon PR and feel insanely good (though right now I feel insanely tired and stressed, and kind of sore).
The rest of the year, well, I take step 1 of my medical school boards next week. Then I get roughly 2 weeks to relax before I head off to start 3rd year rotations. I would like to try to run a fall marathon (Columbus), but it is going to all depend on whether or not I can train during rotations. If not, I might try for some 1/2s and such.
This group has been great. It was very motivating, especially today, to push me through when I really wanted to stop. I set a goal at the beginning of this month to get the 1000km by the end of May. I never thought I would get done so quickly. Thanks again guys! I love this group.
Keep running and stay ahead of that bunny! You guys can do it!

Nothing wrong with being proud of your accomplishments, especially one like this that takes a lot of hard work and commitment. Not conceited at all! Way to go!

Congratulations! Impressive that you finished so early in the year!
