i've been itching for a race.

I didn't get to run yesterday. I ended up working the whole day after all, which was frustrating and disappointing. I'm even more behind in my running goal now. I wish I just had more time in my life, but I don't. It would be convienent if I could just quit sleep or something so that I could run more often. I can't, though.

Rumor has it that I take on too much at a time, that my goals are too high. I'm tired of hearing about it. I guess that I'm just too much of a goal oriented person, but my goals are some of the most important things to me. I feel like many people think that I can't do this or that I can't do that. I don't know. I really intend to finish my 1000 miles and I intend to start running outside as soon as possible. I also intend to add to my weekly mileage as soon as I start running outside again. The treadmill sucks, as does the weather.

Today it was a little nicer outside, so I'm hoping that the worst of winter is over. I'm completely okay with running in the rain, too. I'm just not okay with running through a foot of snow plus ice. Sucky.

I will get this all done. I still haven't officially signed up for Goofy's Challenge. I will probably do it as soon as I'm done paying my bills for the month. I've gotten a little bit sick of paying bills and watching my hard earned money disappear. I guess that's just reality, though. Sigh. It's only the beginning.

I really need to find someone to run the Holy Half Marathon in South Bend. It's in April. I'd really like to convince Katherine to do it with me, but she hasn't really run much since she hurt her foot. I know that she'd like to try to train for something, but she's nervous. Ugh. I hope that she miraculously gets better or at least decides to spend that weekend in South Bend. I'm just not ready to go out there by myself... and I don't know enough runners to convince anyone else to go with me, I guess. I'm hoping.

Goal: 1000 miles/365 days
So far: 211.09 miles/106 days
To go: 788.91 miles/259 days


  1. I'd love to run that with you but foot is still sort of messed up and I haven't been able to train at all. I'd like to actually have training time before running another half. I'm sry to disappoint you. I miss running. That was something I had that is gone now you know?

    I'm glad you set goals to help you stay motivated. I do think they are sometimes too high and if you ask me my opinion I'll tell the truth about it you know?

  2. I know. At this point, I just want someone to go to South Bend with me that weekend. I really would like to run a race... soon! :(
