Believe it or not, we’re almost halfway through 2014! I have several other posts planned for between now and June 30th, the halfway point of the year, but still wanted to ensure that I reflected upon one of my big goals for the year – to complete 14 races in 2014.
So far, I have completed six races:
And I am currently registered for another four races:
That only leaves me with four more races to choose. With a number of possible fall races that I’m currently considering, its entirely possible that I may complete more than 14 races this year. I’m not any closer to making a final decision about a fall half marathon, but whether or not I run a fourth half this year has no bearing on whether or not I will accomplish my goal to complete 14 races this year.
I feel really good about the races that I’ve completed, and the races that I’m currently registered to run. When I made it my goal to complete 14 races this year, my intention was not to run every race possible just for the sake of checking a box off. I feel as though I’ve been very selective in the races I’ve chosen to run, and the repeat races that I’ve either already completed or have signed up to run again were races that I felt were well organized and that I thoroughly enjoyed. And part of why I’m having the debate I am about a fall half marathon is because I want to make sure that I’m choosing the right races for me.
I can’t wait to see what the second half of 2014 has in store for me as I continue to challenge myself to become a faster, but more importantly, a stronger runner.
