What big running goals are you planning this year after the warm weather hits?
I checked out my article from that time last year and realized how the coronavirus could affect the 2020 racing season. Little did we know how COVID-19 would turn our worlds upside down. As vaccine options become more readily available, we are now able to get life back to a more normal state. As a runner, this means that more and more races will take place.
In honor of the month of women’s history, we have a really amazing performance for the running highlight of the month. Pam Reed just finished her 100th 100 mile race last month. Yes, you read that right. With almost 30 years of racing, it is the 17th 100 miler that has reached 100 in the history of the sport. Covering this distance once a year is enough to train and prepare for it. I can’t imagine how much blood, sweat, and tears she put into this goal. If you look at their racing history, it has tackled some of the toughest on the market multiple times. When she sees that she has just turned 60, she has plenty of time to keep increasing her target total. Congratulations Pam. What an amazing achievement!
What big goals are you planning for this year after the warm weather shows up? You’ve had a year to think about it, and now is the time to act on it. Think about the lack of opportunity in 2020 and how amazed we were all when things couldn’t happen.
1. Start coming up after that. There is no time like the present to prepare your miles for a big year. Get into a routine now and it will pay off across the board. Hopefully with the recent DST change, the extra daylight will help you get out the door.
