I would run 500 miles and I would run 500 more!

One of our goals for 2016 was to run 1000 miles.  It required carefully keeping track and being very regular about our running.  I liked the regularity that we needed.  It was hard while we moved and went on trips to keep it up, but we did- even on cruises.  We both finished the goal a little early- Rob a little earlier than me (and he even had two bone spurs and plantar fasciitis.)  I also dealt with a little plantar fasciitis, but my main problem was being so exhausted all the time.  I still haven't figured it out, but I am slowly getting better.  I can't run like I used to, but I am slowly getting faster and being able to run longer again.  Remember when we were training for and running marathons?  Ya- not even close any more.  I can barely run 6 miles and I am exhausted for the rest of the day.  But I'm not giving up and I'm not giving in!
Definitely had to buy new shoes after 1000 miles!
Here's to keeping and meeting your goals!  We crushed 1000 miles!
