My Running Confession- No Bucket List for Me

I have a confession for you.

I have no running goals. It's true.

I keep reading about friends tackling their first marathon or training for a triathlon or training for an obstacle race.  They say that these things are on their "bucket lists".

I don't have one.

I love running.  But, I don't feel a deep desire to go further.

This weekend I'll tackle my 9th half marathon.  Despite the fact that my training hasn't been all that I'd hoped, I'm feeling pretty good about it.  I love the half marathon.  It takes me out of my comfort zone without monopolizing my life.  The idea of training for twice that distance leaves me a little cold.

I also don't care about my time.  My PR was earned in June of 2013 and I'm fine with it.  If I'm feeling awesome this weekend and go faster, I'll have a little personal party in my head.  But, if I don't, I'll still celebrate the accomplishment of finding the finish line once again.

I'm satisfied with my current mileage.  I'm good with my current speed.

And now my plan is to just keep running.

Do you have a long Bucket List?
or Are you satisfied with your current accomplishments?
