All that being said I really would like to establish some different traditions. More like, how many ultras are you going to finish this year, and how fast are you trying to run it this time around? Instead of, are you going to try and finish it.? Baby steps. First things first. I realize.
It's time to invest. Banking miles now with the idea of reaping dividends in August. That is my financial plan. It's painful at times to cough up the extra change and spend time and sweat paying the cost now, but I think, I hope, I dream that the final payday will be worth it. It seems a long ways off, but I'm going to think strategically. Keep an eye on those p/e ratios (hill training), diversify the portfolio (strength training and cross training), reinvest the dividends (speed work), and max out the 401k (high mileage weeks). All this of course has to fit in the budget (sound nutrition and losing the piano). The formula is simple. Time to write some checks.
