Just thought I would post a note that I'm joining the group.
Moving up from the 1,000 mile group from last year which was my first year to really set any kind of a mileage goal. I ended up with 1,357.3 for 2012 so I'm looking at 1,500 for 2013 as a pretty good number for me. Starting out the first 4 months with a training plan for my first marathon, so I'm hoping to get out in front of the bunny a good bit in these first 4 months and then hang on from there.
Of course I need to get over this cold and get out and start running pretty soon!

I think I'm in a similar boat to Nathan's. I put 1,000 miles for the year in my signature, but now I'm thinking that with training for an early November marathon, 1,000 miles is selling myself a little bit short. I'm going to shoot for 1,500 and so far I'm on pace to hit that goal.
2014 goals: 2,000 | 52.5 | Marathon PR | Skip the injuries again
2015 goals: 2,000 | TBD | No major injuries
Halfway there in just a few days over 3 months!! I'm smoking the pace bunny right now.
I've moved my personal goal to 2,000 miles this year for now, not 100% sure what my plans are after this marathon training cycle, but I think I should have a pretty good shot at 2,000 since I've gotten such a good head start on it.
