My 2010 Running Goals

Posted Jan 11 2010 7:16pm

My running history starts with my first 5k attempt on the treadmill and pretty much ends at my recent marathon experience. It’s been an insane, confidence building 18 months but sometimes I still have a hard time calling myself . . . dun. . dun. . dun. . . a runner.


A runner.


It still cracks me up. Especially considering what people have told me. :)

Anyway, what I’ve learned about myself is that I need a reason. A goal. An event. SOMETHING to motivate me. I’m like this with a lot of things. It’s one of the reasons I agree with many who say weight maintenance is harder then weight loss. While losing I had a goal. I can track my progress as I worked towards that goal. However, in maintenance my goal is to stay the same. There is no progress to track or finish line to cross. It’s just not as motivating. For me, anyway.

Right now I feel like I’m in the maintenance stage of running. I set my running goals for the 2009 here. I reached those goals. Now what do I do?

Well. . . set more goals of course! It’s the only thing that keeps me going.

This year I’m not going for distance as much as consistency. My plan is to run at least 1 organized event a month. That can’t be too hard, can it?


Here’s what I registered for so far. . .

Notice I snuck in one big one (so far). I’m going have to start training for it soon and I’m hoping that gets me back into a more regular running routine. We’ll see. :)

Ok, I’m off. I OD’d a bit on some home made pizza tonight. I still feel too full. bleh.
