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!

2014 Goals


  • Break 2:00 in the half marathon
  • Break 24:30 in the 5k
  • Raise $1,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

What are your goals for 2014?

>New year, same resolutions

>As the new year begins, I’m trying to decide what my resolutions will be, however, they’re always the same. But this year, I plan on changing that (just like every year). I have three: gain 10 pounds/get back into shape, run the Cleveland half marathon, and start a blog. So here I am, starting a blog about my journey of running a half marathon.

I’m not really sure how it will go, both the training and the blogging. This is my first time doing a blog, and quite frankly, I’m not sure on the guidelines. But I’ll try it, and if I keep it up, I’m sure it will be rewarding in the end. Same goes for my running.
