New Year’s Resolutions


A new year is a time for renewal, resolutions, health, and happiness!  I love the turning of the year because it provides the opportunity to make lists of things I want to accomplish (and I don’t feel silly doing it since everyone else is too).  

As for the running side of me, I’d like to set a PR for a half marathon.  My best time is 1:59:30 which was my halfway point time at the 2010 Marine Corps Marathon.  However, you see my goal goes a little further than this, because ultimately I would love to one day qualify for the Boston Marathon (I need a time of 3:40, fast right!?).  To help me get there I am setting a goal to run a 1:40-1:50 race in the National Half Marathon this March.  It will take some speed work and discipline in getting there but I have high hopes that this will serve as my springboard to Boston.

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
