December 17, 2008 - The final miles of the running year.

Yo Run Gang,

As we log the final miles of the running year Im reminded of the tremendous motivational value of the log. You may no longer be able to set a PR at a race, but streaks and total mileage PRs are always out there. Totals like the most mileage ran in a day, a week, a year. Streaks like the most days ran in a row or some other motivational streak like number of weeks in a row that you ran at least 3 days. Im sure many of you are looking at the years total and are getting out the door trying to hit a number with value to you. 500 miles, 1,000 miles or maybe 2,000 miles! If you dont keep a log, I suggest you add it to your resolutions!

As the snow blows you will need every motivational trick in the book.

  • Run a marathon in 2009! The ultimate gift for yourself this holiday season. Start the process with an entry into Running Fit 501 marathon training program! www.runningfit501.com
  • Sign up now for the February 1st Super Bowl Sunday 5K. Having a race on the calendar give your running purpose, you are in training! Enter today at www.runsuperbowl.com. Heck, the finishers pint glass is reason enough!

Get me out of here! Another way to stay motivated to run all winter is to head south for a long weekend of running! A few days in shorts can renew your fire. Join me in Dade City, Florida at Dances With Dirt Green Swamp the weekend of February 7th. I just looked on Orbitz and found a direct Northwest flight from Detroit to Tampa for $169, Thursday Sunday. Grab a friend or 3 or 4, we have $98 rooms blocked at a new Hampton Inn (I have a cheaper hotel solution, scary but clean!). Not ready for a half marathon or more? Come and volunteer, Ill be sure to give you plenty of free time to get in some trail miles! Go to www.danceswithdirt.com and click on Green Swamp!
