For those playing along at home, I only have 36 miles left to run before I hit 1,000 for the year. That has been my New Year's resolution two years in a row, and FINALLY (hopefully) I'm going to hit it. I am fully prepared to spend New Year's Eve on a treadmill running and running and running if I must, although I'm pretty sure it won't come to that. And I'm going to run that dang 1,000th mile with a party hat on my head.
Logging 1,000 miles was surprisingly harder than I thought it would be, considering I run and train for two marathons a year. I found myself scrambling come December. Had 110 miles to go at the beginning of the month.
I'm pretty sure I'll make this my goal again in 2010, but I'm going to try and be more aware of my mileage, making sure I'm not scrambling again come year's end.
And until this year's end, bring on the last few miles!
