Finding a New Goal

So now what?  Like many distance runners, I completed my goal race a couple of weeks ago.  For me it was a half-marathon this year.  So now what?  I’m still running four days a week and I did 12.5 miles as my long run today.  But I need a goal.  Running is good but training for a race is better.  This time of year there are fewer long distance races but plenty of 5k races.  There are “spooky costume” Halloween races,  “turkey trot” Thanksgiving races and the ever-popular “Jingle Bell” races in December.  A 5k doesn’t really get me pumped up to train but some of these races have a 10k also so I guess I’ll look to one of those as a short-term goal.  Then maybe a spring half?
