Running Bucket list

It’s a crazy thing… If you would have asked me yesterday after I finished the race ‘would you do that again’ the answer would have been a very loud ‘No’ however, now I would. I would do things quite differently though. Next year’s goal: 2:19
I have been so surprised by those who have cheered me on and who cheered me as I finished this leg of my journey. I am also surprised by those who have made ‘digs’ about it. Hurt by those who I thought would celebrate with me, knowing how hard emotionally this was. I do realize that some people may never understand how great it was for me. But all in all it was a great experience, and looking back, its an item that wasn’t even on my ‘bucket list’ even though I don’t have a bucket list… Something I’d never thought I’d do.

I decided to set some easier goals to achieve since it will be a year before I run another half marathon:

1 mile: 9 minute
5K (3.1 miles): :30 hours
10K (6.2 miles): 1:05 hours

Currently I have run 1 mile in 10:55, 3 miles in 39 minutes, and the 10K I ran in October was I think 1:25 so those are both goals that are gonna take some work but its gonna be great to achieve them.

All by the grace of God, that’s for sure.

Phil 3:14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus
