Last minute goals?

Can you have a late year goal? I feel like I have one in my sights, one that I didn't know that I would be able to have a chance to do, which is run my first 100+ mile month. The most I've ran in a month has been 95.6, so I came close, but it didn't happen. Now, as the year is coming to a close, I have already ran 58 miles with 19 days left to go. I think it can be done (well I know others do it with ease, but it will be a milestone for me). So away I go. 42 miles to run in the last 19 days of the year.

And while I'm at it, why don't I set another hopeful goal? If I run a total of 106 for the month than I can break 800 miles for the year, well above the goal I set for myself on January 1st.

So to all you runners out there, lets set some year end goals and achieve them in the last 19 days. What could it hurt? Log in some miles, burn some calories (build up the calorie deficit for Christmas) and be healthy: a good way to lead into the New Year.

Great idea to keep challenging ourselves this holiday season. Right now it seems to be a challenge to just get a few miles in - but I am trying. I am surprised that you only have 800 miles for the year with all your big races - it feels like more to me as I read along. :}

Hey Hawk

I think that would be a great accomplishment. You have made some great strides in this year of running and should be very proud of what you've done. I predict you will easily eclipse that 100+ and end up over 800 for the year.
Best of luck.
