Running Accomplishments:

I am no great runner, by any means. I'm at an ordinary - or perhaps more like mediocre - level. But that's not important. I am just a girl that loves the fresh air on my face and the feel of my shoes on the pavement.

I began Fast Running Blog a year ago to ensure that each run carried a specific focus to attain my goal of qualifying for Boston. "Ready. Set. Go!" I wrote. And with that, I ran and I ran, day after day piling up miles and races, bit by bit.

During my long distance training runs I discovered that the only opponent I had was myself, the way that I used to be. Had I improved over yesterday?

Yes. I had improved! I qualified for Boston! I only have 1:50:10 under the qualification cut-off, so I don't know if that will be enough. In the meantime, I continue to train, run, and stay injury-free. I remain positve and enjoy the possibility that this ordinary lover of running may be running the streets of Boston!

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

As long as I have the sense of satisfaction at having done my very best - and, possibly, learned some significant discovery about myself in the process - then that in itself is an accomplishment, a positive feeling that can carry over to the next run or race.

Long-Term Running Goals:

My long-term goal is to be injury-free. I am really focusing on post run stretching and yoga throughout the week.
