Subject: RE: 2014, Run 1000 miles
I've been watching this thread for a bit now, especially once I realized I was well on track for 1000 miles for the year. Like most guys that get off the couch and get active I have pushed hard and fast, probably too hard and too fast, but it is totally worth it.

In my first full year of running and tri'ing I have just crossed over the 1000 mile mark with more to go. I have ran three HM's, one HIM, a sprint and olympic tri, a 12 and 10K snow/freezout run, A 4 mi stupid steep hill race, and my first marathon (in just under 3:41, not bad for a first timer ). Coming up I will run my first 50k trail run on Saturday (still recovering from my first marathon last Saturday) and one more HM. The HM is a repeat of my first one. I am excited to see how much improvement I have made in one year.

I still get chicked by one of my friends on everything 13.1 or longer, but I'm getting faster with more endurance. I am improving every race, and the competition helps me improve. I might be able to hold her off on my final 13.1 of the year, but it will take a lot of hurt to get it done

I'm not fast, but I'm faster than average. Thanks to all the BT peeps. I am a voracious reader, and I scan these forums for advice, witticisms, and general support. I've gotten great advice, and been entertained.

As of Sat 9/27/2014 - 1004.52 miles Whooooo!

Welcome to the group, Mtnwesttri. Best of luck on your race.

We are right at 3/4 of the way done with the year. The rabbit is at 747.05 and on Oct 1, he will be at 750.69. Everyone on pace?

I'm at 831 right now so hopefully will make it to my goal of 1200.

Checking back in at the 3/4 mark. At 1486 miles. Doubtful I will make my 2000 miles I agreed to as a johnny come lately. I have quite a few miles to run between now and my Mary on November 8th, but after that it will be mostly about swimming and cycling in prep for a TRI in December. I'll give it a shot though.

At 30 to 40 minutes into my run, my foot starts to go numb. If I keep going, the foot goes totally numb.

Soon after I got married, I decided I needed to get motivated to work out and focus on getting back into shape. I could barely jog a quarter-mile without needing a walk break.

Taking the time to have your running form analyzed can help many athletes run further, faster or both!

I think quite truly for the first time I 'get it'. It's not just about the fitness. It's not just about the great little endorphin rush as you hit 5, 10, 15 miles...its not just the medal at the end.
