It is so easy to be self-centered when working towards a goal of a race or fitness goal! The people who achieve their goals while doing so much for others are the true winners. We can learn a lot from this #STRONG2014 athlete!
-run 1000 miles this year. After deciding that, I modified it to include running 262 miles before the Boston Marathon as my pledge to the Boston Marathon World Run. I started a few days into February and ran my last 3 miles at the BAA 5k on the Saturday prior to the marathon. Last few weeks were tough trying to fit in all the miles I needed – but, with the help of great running buddies, I got them done! It was amazing being part of the marathon weekend! With that, I’m on track to hit 1000 for the year – the challenge will be to keep it going through the warm summer months!
-train for Zane Gray 50 miler next April. I have been out on the trails more this year and have two 50ks on the calendar – one this weekend in Vegas and then one at Bryce Canyon in June … we are getting there!
-help others finish their first event. On March 1st we had 20 kids & 4 adults finish the Phoenix Marathon 10k. In addition, 5 kids and 6 adults finished the 1/2 marathon. I loved being there on the 1/2 marathon course encouraging the runners and helping them reach their goals. Up next … our training group will start training for the Tucson marathon & 1/2 marathon.
