Goals for 2019, Ready to Go, Running

Ready to Go 2019

In 2018, I completed my 4th year of running a race every month. My total races reached 76. In 2019, although I do want to keep my tradition going, I will be trying to keep my racing to a minimum, as I will be doing some bigger “vacation races” and have more specific goals that I want to work on. I do hope to keep the tradition going!

Unfortunately the streak did have to come to an end. I had my first “DNS” at Chill at the Mills in January 2019, ending my “run a race every month” streak. And I’m totally okay with it. I ran a race every other month in 2019!!!) I also ended up getting a PR in every distance I ran except the 8k. It was an awesome year for running!
