2018 Predictions

Image result for new year's predictions 2018

I may not have any running goals but there are some certainties in my running life.

I predict that I will run more miles on the treadmill this year than any other year.

thank you work, darkness and freezing temps

I predict that I will buy more Skirt Sports skirts even though I have more than I can wear.

Rockstar was my last one.

I predict that I will run at least 25 races and one will be another Rock n Roll race.

ran 42 in 2016 and 35 in 2017 so this is a cut back year LOL

I predict that I will not get my hubby to run a race with me.

we share a love for tennis and boating but not running.

I predict that I will speak French at one of my races.

This race was in Central Park, NYC but I hope to run in Montreal and/or Paris in 2018

I predict that I will win at least five age group awards.

I am not bragging but the odds are greater when you get to my age.

I predict that I will have run 1000 miles by the end of the year (unless I get injured.)

I did in 2016 & 2017 so I am hoping for a three-peat.

I predict that I will not PR at any distance this year.

This race was my 5k PR.. PRs are tougher as we age. I think consistency and lack of injuries are much more IMPORTANT than PRs.

I’m also linking this post with Susie and Rachel and Debbie and Lora for the Running Coaches’ Corner.

Happy Running! What can you predict for 2018?

  1. Somehow I really doubt that last one will come true. Unfortunately the first one has probably already come true.And I’m pretty sure the second one will come true, too, because you’re always saying you’re not going to buy anymore . . . and you always do. If they’d just stop making such cute/useful clothes, LOL!


  2. Great predictions 😉 I love your comments about PR’ing as we age. I also think the more races we do, the odds go down (WAY down LOL) on PR’ing as often due to the greater risk of injury and simply the odds of it (more races = more potential for undesirable race day conditions). LIke you, I also believe it’s not about speed (at least not for me), I’d rather enjoy my runs and races than be constantly competing against myself and/or others for a faster time.
