It's March, at last, and the Vernal Equinox is only 20 days away. I ran 5 miles in shorts at an easy pace this afternoon. Tomorrow, if there's not too much snow, I'm going to try to run the 25 mile Quad Rock course with some other local trail runners. I may bring my cross country ski gear as part of a backup plan. I would be disappointed to miss my mileage target for the week (60), but it wouldn't be the end of the world. A chance to practice resiliency, even.
In February, I ran 192 miles, just under 7 miles a day on average. In 2.5 months of training for my first half marathon I ran 215 miles. I've come a long way!
