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:
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.
