A Running Post

Today was a good running day for me.  I had my first 10-mile run of the year this morning, and I did it in 1 hour and 27 minutes--my best time ever!  Today was also the day that I passed the 300 mile mark for the year (I'm at 307, to be exact).  I have been feeling some trepidation about the upcoming half marathon I am signed up for.  I've been training at a faster speed this year, so it has taken me longer to increase mileage.  In the last couple weeks, though, I have finally found my groove and I am feeling good.  My goal this year is to finish in an hour and 55 minutes, 5 minutes faster than last year.  We'll see how that goes.  And just to be clear, I am not posting this to receive any sort of accolades from anyone who might be reading it, but rather, I just want to be able to remember this achievement in the future.  Maybe someday it will give me the boost I need to get out there and do it again!
