I set very arbitrary goals when it comes to my running and walking. Early on, my goal was to do the loop from my house, down my road south to NYS Route 26 and then north up 26 to the north end of the road I live on. It is slightly shy of seven miles and one extraordinarily hot day for May here in Upstate NY, I did it.
After that, I set a new goal. I was going to go from my house to Fredericks Road via Bradley Creek Road and back. This morning was the day! I did it!
