these were my running goal miles for all of 2013 and as is evident in the picture to the right… i made some, came close to others, and fully missed yet others altogether. injury took ahold of me in the end of september and i only logged 7.23 miles in october but i came back strong to round the year out at a nice respectable 1,060.58 miles. my goal for 2014 is to log more mileage than that but i don't have an actual number in mind.
2013 has been a really rough year personally with some really overwhelming challenges. i did live through it and come out alive so there's that. i don't suspect 2014 will be any easier on my personal life but i have high hopes for the coming year. i have HUGE goals and expect a lot of personal triumph! i hope to stay injury free and emotionally sound. i endeavor to conquer the marathon as well as the 50K!
which brings me to you… dear readers and friends. what are your thoughts on 2013 and what are you looking forward to in 2014? i don't really like resolutions so i'd rather we have goals as goals are something to strive for and keep us motivated to be always moving forward and upwards. i suppose we can resolve to attain the goals we are setting forth but for me… it seems like when a person makes a resolution it is an absolute and then we always fail with absolutes. there has to be wiggle room… there has to be room to fail. without failure there is no growth. amiright?
so… talk to me people! what are your plans/goals/resolutions for the impending new year?
