When I started 2018, I had no aspirations to become “a runner”. I had run a few times here and there, but had no plan to drastically increase my frequency/distance running or make it such an integral part of my life.
Somewhere along the way, in April I believe, I decided that I would train to do one of the runDisney Virtual Running Short 5Ks. And that kicked it all off!
Over the course of 2018, I spent 51 hours running 429 kilometers over the course of 126 runs.
I completed four local races, in addition to the runDisney virtual 5K mentioned above:
I also did two “fun runs” while down at Walt Disney World in the fall:
For 2019, I plan on competing in a number of 5Ks, and also will challenge myself with at least one 10K and a half-marathon! And, I’ve just started incorporating some trail running into my routine for variety (as the photos at the top of the post allude to).
Who knows what else 2019 has in store?!
