As I set off for an unscheduled run today (the weather was too good not to get out), I started setting end of the year goals in my head.
1) run the trail around my development at any pace.
2) run the trail around my development at a 10 min/mile or faster.
3) do things that make me happy
I'm pretty sure there were more things, but those are all I can remember. Probably something about races and getting out and meeting people, I'm sure.
I can cross #1 off my list. I ran 1/2 the trail, even part of the hills, without realizing it. So I willed myself to finish. Seriously. Anytime my conviction was starting to fail, I just thought of putting one foot in front of the other.
I wasn't even supposed to run today.
