And it’s December. Somehow we made it. Has it been a crazy ride? Absolutely. There are 31 days until the end of 2021, and here’s how this runner plans to spend the time.
Continue my running streak
That’s right: my streak is still going strong. I’m up to 183 days of one purposeful running/walking/jogging mile per day. I never would have guessed I could do it (in fact, I often declared there is no way I could!) Will I make it to 200? Will I streak for the whole rest of the year? That’s the plan.
Get In One More Race
So I did not manage one race per month this year, but I did pretty well, considering. I will race one more time before we ring in 2022, and I’m excited. It will be a race I’ve done many times before, but in a brand new location. I’m excited for the change of scenery, and hopeful for some cooler temps to help speed me to the finish line. Bonus: I’ll register for a New Year’s run as well. Why not?
Stick With The Strength
I have to keep repeating myself to keep myself true to this point. However, strength training has been helpful, and I need to continue.
Stay On Track With Training
One way or another, the DONNA Half Marathon is happening in February, and I’m going to be ready for it. One way or another. The holidays have never cramped my training style too much, so I know that physically, I’ll make those 13.1 miles. I am hopeful that it will feel great, but I’m keeping the vision of that finish line in my head. The last time I ran was in 2018, as part of the relay. This time, it will be 13.1 miles with a friend on a brand new course. It’s on.
Fun is the name of the game, and you know I’m all about it! I intend to have plenty of fun from now through the end of the year!
How do you plan to spend this last running month of the year?
