02/01/2016 5 miler to start the month, 1000 mile year?, @ilovetorun2009

Well, it's 59 degrees and sunny here, on February 1st.  Shorts on my run today and I ran a solid 5 miles in just under 40 minutes.  It was good to get under 8:00/mile pace and feel comfortable.  I continue to love my trainers by Asics.

Over the last couple of weeks, I keep seeing advertisements online for a virtual challenge called the 1000 Mile Year, by ilovetorun.org.  It is a pretty cool idea.  A goal of either 1000 mile run or walked for the year, or a secondary challenge of 100 days of walking/running for the year.  You can buy a finisher's medal, shirts, posters, etc. to motivate yourself.  

I have to say, I like the idea of having the goal.  It promotes the overall concept of continued movement and healthy activity, rather than getting ready to run a marathon, doing it, then never running again because you crossed it off your bucket list.  Check it out, and if any of you sign up, let me know.
