Inspired by my dude Nick Symmonds’ #RunGum blog post laying out 2018 racing goals, I’ve decided to try and crystalize a few running goals for the coming year.
(Nick’s post also includes a useful goal-setting #BuildThePath worksheet that you can download for free, btw.)
I’ll list my 2018 goals from easiest to hardest:
1) Complete my 30 race challenge (15 to go!) by July 25th
2) Run at least three races of new lengths (non-5/10K races)
3) Set a lifetime best at 10K (currently a measly 44:21)
4) Break 20min for the 5K
5) Win a race (relays count!)
6) Break 19min for the 5K
7) Break 40min for the 10K
8) Accomplish my Super Secret Goals (not telling anyone!)
Southern California friends rejoice!
On Saturday, Feb. 17th, I’m planning to run the Rock the Coast 5K in Long Beach. This low-key race should be real chill, like a SoCal race should be.
Yes, I know that’s not technically in LA. But it’s a Saturday morning race… traffic should be fine.
I am planning to do a race-day signup (cash only) – but you can also pre-register online if you prefer.
See you there?
Will it be cold? Most definitely.
That just means you’ll burn that many more calories before a day of gluttonous eating, drinking, and commercial watching!
Join me on Sunday, February 4th! Maybe we’ll get some beers afterwards….
Sign up here.
Thanks to some holiday pledges, I’m excited to announce that we are over 2/3 the way to our $30K goal!
More significant fundraising efforts will be under way in 2018 to ensure we reach and surpass our goal.
If you haven’t made your pledge yet, please consider pledging now! Donations will be collected following the completion of the 30@30 challenge.
