2000 miles for the year

At the beginning of the year, I decided that running 2000 miles in 2014 would be a good goal to have. Definitely seemed like a reasonable and challenging goal. With today morning's 15 mile run, I crossed 2000 miles for the year. I hit my goal with over 4 months to spare. I covered the first 1000 miles this year on 5/23 so the next 1000 took under 3 months! That's not too shabby eh?

Running Thought


It's very hard in the beginning to understand that the whole idea is not to beat the other runners. Eventually, you learn that the competition is against the little voice inside you that wants to quit...

New Balance shoe testing

I received a New Balance shoe in the mail to test, the second brand I get to test after Nike :) It's the first time I'm running in NB shoes... It's a 6 week test during which I need to get in at least 200 miles which I guess should not be a problem :p

July tops June


I had run the most I'd ever run in a calendar month, in my life, in June with 337 miles. Well, I topped that in July with 352 miles. To put things into perspective though July had an extra day. The average miles run per day were pretty similar - 11.23 to 11.35. My focus at this point is not to run as many miles as possible. It's to leverage my mileage base and get in quality training. How will August turn out?
