Well, we are coming to the end of January already.
My goal is to run 1000 miles in 2015, which is a lot of miles. 20 miles a week on average.
I decided to do this to try to raise $1000 for a wonderful charity close by to me named Mosiac http://www.mosaicinfo.org/
The charity helps people with intellectual disabilities.
(Please let me know if you donate to this charity, so I can keep a track of the amount of $$$ raised!!!)
So, by now I should have ran about 60 miles. The last time I wrote a bog post, I had ran 20 miles, which was on target after 2 weeks. So off to a good start.
In the past 2 weeks since then, I have recorded 25 miles, which totals 45 miles. I should be around the 60 mark, but I'm a little behind. I expected it to happen at some point, but I didn't think it would be so soon!
So for up until now I have been taking pictures of my miles ran and positing them on the blog. This, it seems, can get very messy very quickly if you are not organized! I had to sit and figure out which pictures on my camera were old and which were new. I don't think this method will work so well, so I've decided you are going to have to trust me to post the right amount of miles. And I will. Cheating is not in my nature! So for the past two weeks I have photos of a total of 25 miles. (which I am not posting for the reasons just explained, and also because they aren't so fun to look at and I don't think anyone will really look at them anyway!). I actually think I ran a few more than that, but I either didn't take a picture, or it disappeared. (See how taking pictures can become complicated??!) Anyway. I have pics of a total of 25 miles, so that's what I will go with.
So yes, I have to play catch up. I think I may need to create some sort of battle plan so I can fit them all in. I know some long runs are an order.
There are so many quotes which inspire me, and today, I think this one is appropriate.
Ok, so I have some work to do!! Ok, I'll be back in a couple of weeks!! :)
Keep running!! :)
