365 Miles in 365 Days

I've got a plan.  I'm going to run (at least) 365 miles in 365 days.  I used to run almost daily and would run a few 5Ks a semester.  For whatever reason, I stopped doing so well in the keeping up with my running (and I'm an Exercise Science major...tsk tsk Wendy!)

So I've decided I need to set a goal other than just "I'm going to run a 5K" (done it) or "I'm going to run a 10K" (by when specifically? this year? next year? next week?) or "I'm going to run a marathon" (that just sounds intimidating right now!).  Besides, signing up for races involves money, and right now, I just want to run for fun.  I DO want to do another race soon, but I don't want that to be my only goal. So, between September 10, 2010 and September 10, 2011 (9/10/11 haha! I really didn't do that on purpose!) I'm going to run at least 365 miles.

I'm keeping up with my distances on my new tab I added a few days ago called Running Log.  I'm not starting off running every day, but eventually, I'll be running more than one mile a day, so I should catch up with myself!

One year for my birthday, one of my friends gave me a really cool planner where you recorded how far you ran, how you felt while you were running, races you ran (and your times) and you could even jot down the weather if you wanted.

I just found it online!!  I'm going to hold off on buying the 2010 edition, but I think I just might invest in the 2011 edition. (If it gives you any idea of how long it's been since I've run on a really regular basis...mine was the 2007 or 2008 edition! :X That's no good!
