Every year January 1st rolls around and people set their New Year’s resolutions.. gyms are annoyingly full, people quit smoking and start new diets, and people make pledges to be better people. Me, personally, the minute I set a “resolution” I break it within the next 24 hours. That’s why this year I just made a list of goals, things I wanted to accomplish by the end of 2014.
One of my goals was to start a blog, check. Another was to run 1 half marathon this year, check check…. My reason for starting a blog was partially to hold myself accountable for training and racing and partially to inspire and be inspired by others… In the past I would start training for a race that I would never sign up for and race day would come and I was not trained nor did I make it to the race. I would feel like crap about myself, promise to sign up for another race and train and never do it… it was a vicious cycle that luckily came to a halt last year when I slowly started getting into the racing scene again. I had wanted to start a blog for a long time because I also enjoy writing but I was just to chicken to do it… On March 17th, I woke up and thought, what do I have to lose? I’m starting a blog today…Starting this blog has helped to inspire me and forces me to keep going. Everyday I’m looking up new races to add to my calendar and setting new goals…
Now here comes the tricky part… setting some running goals for May…
1. PR for the Long Island Half
2. Run at least 1 5K (I’m thinking Friehofers Run… but haven’t fully committed yet)
3. PR in the Buffalo Marathon (hoping for 4 hours or Less )
4. STAY HEALTHY!!!!!
What are your goals for May?
