I started the year run with minimal miles between last September and December. I had a horrible bout with plantar fasciitis.
I had no goals beginning of 2009, purposefully. I just wanted to be able to run.
This September, I realized that I was catching up with the bunny. I realized I might make it.
Now, I'm not too far behind. I only need to do 23 or so miles per week for the rest of the year to catch that rabbit.
After having been behind him every day this year... I might not catch him until December 31, but... I think I'm gonna do it.
Congratulations! It's nice to be injury free, and exciting to exceed your expectations for running this year.
And also--like your reading list!
Good for you. Hope the rest of your runs go good for this year.
I was injured this year and was down for a whole month and a half. I'm still just over 100 miles behind the bunny, but am slowly catching up. I managed to run 140.6 in October, so if I can keep that up (not sure I can yet) then I also have a chance of beating the bunny.
Eight miles behind the rabbit.
Kill the wabbit. Kill the wabbit.

Working toward hip nirvana.
I'm on the right
I beat the rabbit with 8 hours to spare.
Congratulations! Now, the problem with that rascally rabbit is that he starting running again in 8 hours! What is your goal for next year?
I'm Eric, the guy who runs to keep his sanity.
Thanks for all the support. What a great group of runners here.
