Well we meant to do this post a while back, but we apparently never got around to it, so I guess now's as good a time as any to post our goals for 2010. So here they are:
1.) Work on my Core: I have a really bad back, probably due to four years of crashing into people on the rugby pitch, and it's only gotten worse now that I have a desk job and sit down for 9.5+ hours a day. I know I always feel better after a little session of core and some yoga, but somehow I never seem to find the time to work it in. This MUST change in 2010.
2.) Run at least 4 Marathons: I have definitely caught the running bug from Miss Bethany. As you all know, we first started dating, I had NO desire to EVER run. No she's got me hooked, and yes, the marathon is now my favorite distance. I'm already 1/4th of the way to this goal, after finishing the Disney Marathon with a nice PR. Next up is Boston Marathon in April, Alaska Mayor's Marathon in June, and Stone Cat Trail Marathon in November. Contemplating Bay State Marathon in October, but we will see.
3.) Start my Master's Degree: I'm already on my way to this one. I started taking night classes at Northeastern University, working on my Master's degree in Structural Engineering. It gets a little stressful at times, trying to balance working full-time, class, and running, but it'll work out.
4.) Eat more Fruits and Veggies: Luckily I have Miss Bethany to help me with this.
5.) Set new PRs in the 5k, 10k, and Half-Marathon Distances
1.) Run the StoneCat 50 Mile Trail Race in November
2.) Have a new marathon PR (3:25?)
3.) Break 5:20 in a Half-Ironman
4.) Floss More (not going so well)
5.) Read at least one book per month (so far on book #3)
6.) Maybe lose a couple pounds this summer
Well that's about it for now. Hope everyone's having a good week!
