2017 Running Goals Check

Whether you want to think about it or not, it’s that time. Time to start thinking about what you’ve accomplished so far, and here’s hoping – a lot – and what’s left to get done. Of course if you’ve been assiduously working on checking off items on “the list” then you should be in the happy camp now, otherwise, not so much. Either way, I want to assure you that your goals matter and so do you. For those who haven’t gotten to where they had hoped to be at this point, fear not, for even if you got 20 percent done it is 20 percent more than where you were when you started, plus you’re in good company.😉

Another day gives us another opportunity to take a step up on the ladder to accomplishment. Sure we’ve had good and bad days — mostly bad days some may say — and so what, goals are not cast in stone. The idea behind them is to motivate and guide you to a healthier you and a better way of life. You’ll get there eventually, one good day and one bad day at a time. You’re the only one who gets to decide how fast or slow you do this. So let’s quit complaining and feeling bad and get down to what can be done with the time left starting with a check in or off. 📃✔

In checking off, I’d have to say I’m off on a few things. Again, I’ve failed to stick with recording my daily mileage, and fell off the wagon for the last couple months, but I’m determined to resume logging from today, September 1. In addition, I did not get the time I was hoping for in Boston this year but I’ll be back next year to try again. More so, I haven’t started my running volunteer gig as yet and hope to start this month proving to you that better late than never us really a thing. On the other hand, I’m on the road to crossfit, my destination is in sight marathon, charity run coming up, and I’m working toward the PR  qualifying goal. I’ve also started reading  “running” and I’m now on “Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall, which I find very entertaining. The only unrealistic goal left on my list now, given the time frame I’m working with, is swimming and just for the heck of it, I’m leaving it on there. After all, I could suddenly become super human and get it done. More likely not, but I’m winging it because I kinda like that there remains some tiny part of me that still wants to get it done, the overachiever, unrealistic-dreamer-part of me, frankly, I’m rather crazy about her.😜
