Goals 2020 Update


Since it’s Tuesday, I’m joining the link-up organized by Zenaida and Kim (Kooky Runner)

My Topic today is: GOALS 2020

If you read my blog, you may remember that my goal for 2020 was to run ONE half marathon EACH MONTH.

I actually ran January and February’s races.

Then this pandemic!! My March’s was cancelled and April and May’s have been postponed. I actually did not sign up for one in June. All were completed as virtual races (completed is a loose term meaning I did the distance.)

I decided to add a new goal in April:

Visit ALL the LOCAL 25 NEW NATURE TRAILS.

There are many nature preserves just in my local area.  So far, I have visited 21.

In addition to these preserves, there are many parks with trails, waterfalls, arboretums, and nature sanctuaries.  Plenty to choose from. I have visited 10 already.

Definitely one of the positives that has come out of the pandemic.  Normally I would be training and running with friends. For my job, I would be traveling.

I discovered places that were nearby and many of them have many trails so they were visited more than once.

And It’s only June 1 and I’ve already surpassed my Nature Trail goal. We are still in the midst of a pandemic.

Let’s see how many I can visit before the end of 2020!!!! 50??

I want to re-visit the early ones because of the increased greenery and of course, again the fall to see all the autumn colors.

  1. I had a very similar goal: do one race a month. I had done four until the end of March.
    Now I’m doing weekly half-marathons – but at a relaxed pace, definitely not racing them.
    I love your new goal!! And the gazillion photos!
    I’m a big fan of forests and nature. Yes, why not make it 50 by the end of the year?!

    • Yes I should change to 50. I’m hoping I get back to work but who knows.

      Weekly half marathons? Wow! I’m trying to stay half ready for August and run 8-10 miles on the weekend.

  2. You’re lucky to have so many trails and preserves so close by. I am SO jealous! Do your legs feel stronger from all the walking? A lot of different muscles are used for walking, so it’s an awesome compliment to running 😉

  3. Oh! These trails are going to be fire in the fall! I can’t believe all the gorgeous colors you will see! One of these days, we would love to go to the mountains for the sole purpose of seeing the colored leaves. One day.
