Keep on Running

Well the training for the 8k (just over three weeks away) has been going well, despite some terrible weather here over the last month (when it hasn’t been raining torrentially, we’ve been under eight inches of snow) and I’m pleased to say that today I achieved a personal best time of 48 minutes on a practice run.  I think this is largely because I took a completely different route today, as I’ve been fighting boredom and predictability doing the same old same old run (with some small variations) for most of the time.  Considering that when I first started running last summer, my initial time for a 5k was around 48 minutes, I’m really impressed with myself.  What’s more, I’ve calculated that so far in 2014 I have run 116km, which is as far as Colonial Williamsburg.  I’m aiming to run as far as New York (58okm) before we actually go there in November.
