Hi. My name is Ben and I forgot to post an update from a goal I set for 2020.
*you say* Hi Ben. We forgive you.
Thank you so much! Well, last January I made a goal to run 250 miles and walk 250 miles. I had no idea if it would be easy or hard or whether I’d fall way short or go way over. It was all of that; sometimes easy, sometimes hard. The hardest was actually on the final day. I was *this close* to admitting to myself I wouldn’t reach 250 running. I was just over 6 miles away. Running 6 miles in a day might not sound tough to you, but it was cold outside, VERY cold, so I had to do it all on a treadmill.
I know, treadmills are not fun. But somehow I was able to get it all done and walked my sweat-drenched self out from Planet Fitness to my car and drove home.
I was pretty pumped to have reached my goal! Hopefully this year I won’t wait until the very last day to complete it all, because, yes, I’ve committed to the same goal again, PLUS a hundred miles on a bicycle… because I got a bicycle!
Thanks for stopping by…
