Wow, I’ve Reached 1,000 Miles!

I’ve been keeping a close eye on my total mileage for a couple of weeks now as I’ve edged closer to the 1,000 mile mark.  When I set out for my long run on Saturday, I knew that completing all of my planned mileage would push me across the finish line of this milestone.  After I finished saving Saturday’s run data to RunKeeper, I checked my e-mail and received this: 1,000 miles I’ve been anticipating reaching this milestone for awhile now.  Since I started running in March 2013, I’ve run, walked, and ellipticalled over 1,000 miles.  And what does reaching this milestone make me want to do? Push myself that much harder!  I cannot wait to see what I’m able to push myself to do, and what I’m capable of accomplishing. At this time two years ago, running was far from being a reality.  In fact, I had convinced myself that I wasn’t capable of running.  Since then, I’ve convinced myself that I can run, and can do whatever I put my mind towards accomplishing. Where will the next 1,000 miles carry me?  What races will I run over the next 1,000 miles?  Only time will tell, and I cannot wait to see what I accomplish!

QOTD: What milestone did you recently reach?

    I just ran my 7th half marathon on Saturday, and on my FitBit, I got a total of 35,000 steps that day! That was a big milestone, as my previous high was 22,000!
