Week 3: Big Picture

So, I've spent too much time this week planning out my 2015.

Nothing makes me happier than strutting around
with calendars and spreadsheets.

I've mentioned about a ZILLION times to The KoB about these calendars and spreadsheets and he has not ONCE asked to see them. WHAT THE WHAT?

Indulge me, bro
My guess is that I haven't really given him much time to ASK before I just thrust all the dates, races, trips in his face and ask... Okay???
His reaction.

All this to say... I've been thinking BIG PICTURE lately and for me, that's good. I need goals (and they aren't really SPEED goals, but just... be able to complete the dang thing goals and HAVE fun). I've also spent some time looking back at my log in 2009-2012. And it's very hot and cold. Some weeks I was running 50 miles a week and then others I was running like 12. I never let low mileage weeks get me down as much as I do now.

WHY IS THAT? WHY DO I CARE? Particularly when I'm not training for something. I mean good lord, lighten up, ya know?

So, I'm just focusing on enjoying my running again and loosening up a bit on the outcomes of running. Enjoying the journey more and not the destination.

2015 is going to be a good year. Full of marathons and trips and fun running.

Did you see this?

Anytime I read about that race, you come to mind b/c I remember reading it on your blog and having no idea how you'd say it.

I'm thinking 2015 is the year I run another marathon (I haven't done a full since Flying Monkey 2012). I'm thinking fall, but I could be persuaded otherwise. All that to say, I'm starting to make the rounds and let my Nashville running buddies know I'm planning to get back into it and find a good race. I'd love company and/or tag along with someone else, haha!
