I finished my last run of the year (a short, uneventful 3-miler). As I logged the workout, the OCD in me decided to crunch some numbers - rather shocking since I am not a numbers person.
Earlier this month, when I first started thinking about 2011, all I could think about was the 2 DNF's I had this year. And then I didn't want to reflect upon the year anymore. But I've had a lot of downtime during this week's staycation, looked beyond those 2 unfortunate incidents and found that there was a lot of good that happened this year: I ran my first (and so far only) trail race at the Coyote Hills Half Marathon.
It's about that time of year when everyone is setting goals for the New Year. Most people set fitness goals, so if you are someone who is just getting into fitness, I'm going to share a bit of advice that I wish someone gave me 8 years.
