What are your biggest, most outlandish, running goals?
You probably know my two big running goals, since I talk about them often.
My two goals have different requirements for success. One is all about longevity while the other is centered around performance.
Provided I keep running for the next 30-50 years, which is the plan, in theory running a marathon in every state shouldn’t be that difficult.
But qualifying for Boston? That is a goal that is going to require me to get substantially faster than I am right now of the marathon distance.
And the only way for that to happen is to raise the ceiling of my fitness.
