I have three major milestones coming up within the next year or so. One of my goals is to run 1,000 races. I am at 932 with 68 to go. I ran 79 races in 2016, so I should reach my goal by next December. Another goal is to run 101 half marathons. I will complete this season (thru April) with 91. That will give me 10 more in the 2017/18 season. Tentatively, I plan to run my 101st half marathon at the Love.Run.Marathon in February 2018. That is the race where I ran my 101st (and last) full marathon in February 2014. The third milestone is my 50th wedding anniversary on October 28 of this year. That falls on a Saturday, so I will run a half marathon that day.
In the meantime, I went out to the park this afternoon and ran 3 miles on the trails. We had a heavy rain earlier today, but there was no water or mud on the trail. The holiday crowd has cleared out of the park and for the first time in a while, I saw no one else on the trails.
