Randomly decided to add up all my miles this morning. Apparently I hit the 1000 mile mark yesterday on the treadmill when I was warming up for weights at the gym. If I was getting excited about things I think this would be something I would get excited about. Puts me on track for exceeding last years miles of 1328 but I little behind for hitting over 2000 for the year. Though 2000 is still completely doable especially since my schedule is now a lot better for fitting in running time than it was the first 5 months of the year. No more 2 hours on the gym treadmill while Gretchen is in child watch. Hard to do because it's boring and Gretchen isn't always into child watch.
I need some 1000 mile cake.
Recently I've been thinking about all my silly running and whats the point. I mean it costs money, I have to pay for the race and take the day or in some cases two days off work. If it's a longer race trying to carry trays of food up stairs the next day could be a scary situation. I have to have someone watch my daughter. That someone usually being my mom who already watches her many weekends so I can work.
I'm pretty good at it, not great or anything but pretty good. I think I can be even better if I kicked up my training a notch. I always feel like I undertrained for races. But whats the point. No one really cares if I can place at races or what my time was. It's not going to make any money get me a good job or a date.
The only point is that I like it. I guess that's enough and of course I did just sign up for another race. Since that is what I really wanted to do and looking at the current list of entrants I think I could win. Could also DNF, I mean its 50 miles you never know.
