A Sprint to the Finish

I’m cutting it a little close this year. Wednesday is November 1 so I have two months to meet my goal of running 1,000 miles in 2017. With holidays, travel and other commitments these remaining nine weeks will go by quickly. running log Nov2017Through today I’ve logged 928 miles this year. So 72 to go. I’ve averaged 20 miles a week for the first 43 weeks so I should be able to get 72 more in less than four weeks but for some reason I’m not feeling confident. In part because my schedule this week is crazy with work, some church board work and I’m getting ready for a vacation out-of-town next week. I usually get some good runs in while traveling but I also don’t want to take time away from my wife while on vacation so it’s a balance.

Goals are great. And for me, a running goal isn’t something I “hope” to do, it’s a commitment I make to myself. So it’s not an option. I’ll hit it. It’s just a matter of time.
