Beginners and Beyond

What major running goals have you reached (and what is still out there)? (Read 188 times)


    Running a half in all 50 states is a great goal.

    Running ANY type of race in all 50 states would be pretty awesome too.

    Slow and steady never wins anything.

      Ok I'll play. I put one foot in front of the other and got started. That was a pretty cool accomplishment. I spent a long time saying I wouldn't run unless someone was chasing me. And then suddenly, one day, no one was chasing me and I was running anyway! Other goals I've  checked off are that I completed a 5K, then PRed a 5K, and completed a 10K.


      Still to come, in 2013, goals are....

      To complete:

      4 mile race

      5 mile race

      10 mile race

      Half Marathon

      And PR:



      Annnnnd maybe even sub 30 5K (current 33:33) and sub 60 10K (current 107:47)


      Life goals:

      Train for and complete a full marathon

      Run the NYC Marathon (could be in addition to or as part of the first goal)

      I like that half in every state goal, and that would be awesome, but more realistic for me I'm going with.... Run a race in at least 10 different states, at least one that requires a plane flight, and run a race in at least one different country

      PRs:   5K- 28:16 (5/5/13)      10K- 1:00:13 (10/27/13)    4M- 41:43 (9/7/13)   15K- 1:34:25  (8/17/13)    10M- 1:56:30 (4/6/14)     HM- 2:20:16 (4/13/14)     Full- 5:55:33 (11/1/15)
