Holiday 100 Update

I thought I would try the ole Holiday 100 this season and try to run 100 miles between Thanksgiving and Christmas. whoa! (I know)

Am I way behind? Yes.
Do I feel discouraged? Yes.
Am I still running knowing I won't make it to 100 miles by Christmas? Yes.

So in that, I feel successful. I'm still running.

So far, I've run 35.13 miles since Thanksgiving. That means I have almost 65 miles to run in 12 days which comes out to running over 5 miles a day. (math)

Is that going to happen? Probably not.

However, I'm going to keep running and I'm going to get as close as I can.

I feel good knowing that this holiday goal has gotten me back into running and thinking about future races.
