An evening jog… June 12, 2010

I just got done with a 2.5 mile jog around my neighborhood. I love that hour of twilight between 7 and 8pm when the sun is setting and all the neighbors come out to play. I felt like everyone was out tonight. Kids were riding their bikes, parents were laughing and sprinklers were watering suburban lawns. It just reminds me of home, it’s so nice. I just took my time and really enjoyed everything that the summer evening had to offer.

Then I started thinking that I should set some kind of long term goal for myself. I’ve run 11 long distance marathons over the past 6 years (8 half-marathons and 3 full-marathons).

Then this brilliant idea was born:

The 20 Before 30!

I think I would love to do 20 endurance races before I turn 30. That gives me just over 3 years to complete 9 more. I plan to do two more half marathons in the fall… so then I’ll have 7 more to do in the next 2.5 years. Do you think I can do it?

 

PS… I finally bought my Boston Marathon photos…. It was totally worth it (I found a coupon for 30% off, SCORE!)

Here’s a few teasers!
