Quote of the month:
There are as many reasons for running as there are days in the year, years in my life. But mostly I run because I am an animal and a child, an artist and a saint. So, too, are you. Find your own play, your own self-renewing compulsion, and you will become the person you are meant to be.
March has been a fantastic month:
- I’ve reached all my running goals this month.
- I’ve never ever run this many km’s / miles in a month.
- I’ve run 284 km / 176 miles in 3 months. Last year it took me till half of you July to reach this mileage.
- Yes, I could have done much better on the Strength and Yoga. I’m not promising this will get better in April because I’m still 100% focussed on running this month. May should be better concerning strength and yoga.
On April 25th it’s finally going to happen: my first half marathon. I’m excited but I’m ready. My goal is to finish under 2 hours and 30 minutes. My first half is about finishing, my second I will try to improve my time.
