300 Miles! And a 5k in my future…

This afternoon I hit the 300 mile mark in my 100 mile iPad mini challenge!  Over the last 100 miles I’ve run a lot on my treadmill and I’ve also had fun hiking in Ridley Creek State Park, Valley Forge National Park, and at a rural central PA destination we fondly call “the Hunting Camp” (more on that in my next post).  Here’s the official tally:

Miles since last post:  86.3
Days since last post:  14
Average Daily Miles since July 18th: 5.57
TOTAL MILES: 301.0

I am now running with an official purpose… in less than 2 weeks I am going to run a 5K!  I haven’t run a distance race since my ill-fated attempt at Cross Country my freshman year of high school so I’m a little nervous (OK, actually a LOT nervous!).  Still, I’ve been working hard and last week I actually beat my best high school 5K time by about 30 seconds!  (I was running on the flat, even treadmill, mind you, but it was a victory nonetheless!)

The 5K that I’ll be running on September 21st is a true off-road cross country trek, complete with rolling (BIG) hills and a possible stream crossing.  We’ll see how it goes!  🙂

The 5K will take place across these beautiful rolling farmlands
