1000 Mile Club

I crossed into new running territory on Saturday...

The 1000 Mile Club!

No, I wasn't a 1000 miles off the ground. 

In the year 2011, I've run over 1,000 miles... actually 1,002.23 so far to be exact! 

Wow! That's the equivalent of running from Zanesville to Tampa, FL! Again I say: Wow!

When I set out in 2011 (read my running resolutions here), I was shooting to run 750 miles.  If my pace stays on track, I'll almost double that!

My current mileage goal... just because I like goals... it gives me something to work towards is 1,201.1 (like 2011 with a 1 on the front) for 2011.  That means roughly 100 miles a month or 25 miles a week for the rest of the year.  Which is: Do-able!

I'm currently hunting for a new 5k Personal Record.  My next race will be the Zaney Reindeer YMCA 5k at Vista View Golf Course.  I ran this race with my Mrs and some friends last year.  I'm looking forward to running it again and setting a new time.  So, my pursuit of a new 5k time is keeping me motivated and moving ahead!

If you want to keep up with my progress, you can find me on RunKeeper (HERE) and Daily Mile (HERE). 

Happy Trails Runners!

Jim
