I've thought about this a few time as we head into the next year. I would aim for 1000 miles in 2013.
Now I am just waiting to finish my physical therapy and be given the ok to start running again.

Run for the Vineyards 5 Miler (Mullica Hill, NJ) - April 27, 2014 Philadelphia Broad Street Run 10 Miler - May 4, 2014 ODDysseyHalf Marathon Phila., PA - June 8, 2014 Flyers Charities Halloween 5K Phila., PA - October 25, 2014 Perfect 10 Miler Trenton, NJ - October 26, 2014 Goretex Philly Half Marathon Phila., PA - November 23, 2014
Right now, my goal is to just continue running. I started with a 3x a week streak which I've been pretty good accomplishing. I've been having some side pain issues which hasn't allowed me to train for anything specific. Need to refocus and set some things up for 2013.
My personal goal is 100 miles per month, or 1200 annually. That goal encompasses all activities that can be converted to aerobic miles, not just running and walking. I haven't accomplished that goal yet, but I feel sure that 2013 will be my year!

I am trying to keep my mileage up to hit 1,000 this year Next year I'd like to log a little more - maybe 1,200 miles since I'll be training for a 30K, but I'll be happy with another 1,000 in 2013.
Voluntary Discomfort is the secret cornerstone of strength. We build our whole lives around increasing comfort and avoiding discomfort, and yet by doing so we are drinking a can of Weakness Tonic with every morning’s breakfast. ~Mr. Money Mustache 5K PR: 23:40 10K PR: 48:57 HM PR: 1:59:37 30K: 2:57:44
I didn't this year but I am next year. I'm shooting for 25-35 per week at least through April. I'm wrapping up the Goofy (half and full the next day in Disney) this January. I'll rest a week then it's off and running to train for the Country Music Half.
