So I was browsing Tumblr this morning, and I stumbled upon what is possibly the greatest idea anyone ever came up with. I have set myself a number of running goals so far this year, including completing my first half and full marathons, and I’m honestly very excited at the prospect of achieving them.
But this idea just takes the cake. Here’s the gif I found on Tumblr this morning:
Pure brilliance, right? 365 miles in a year is literally one mile per day. I will obviously be running more than that on average between my training and races. With just the races I have scheduled, I already have 57.4 of those miles in the bag!
So here’s the deal: There will be a weekly post, which will go live each Monday morning. I’ll let you all know how many miles I achieved the week before, and give you a breakdown of each run. Also, assuming my phone cooperates, there will be screenshots from MapMyRun so you can see for certain that I’ve completed each of these runs. This will all hold me accountable to achieve these 365 miles. I hope you’ll all follow along!
