Still some work to do to meet all my goals, but I think I’ve done a pretty good job so far. I’m excited to see how many I can cross off in the next 6 months!

 

What goals have you accomplished this year? What goal do you want to accomplish before 2015?

2014 Goals

Happy New Year! Hope you had a fun and safe night bringing in the new year. We celebrated in Chicago, post to follow.

Anyway, it’s easy to say that 2013 wasn’t my best year of running, and that’s something I definitely want to change for 2014. I’m already optimistic that this year is going to be great. I have a lot of goals that I want to accomplish, or at least attempt. I also have other goals I’d like to work on through the next 365 days. 2014 will be a year to become a better me!
