I might be a few (actually, 11) days late in writing this, but I’ve got some goals for 2015, y’all. Some mad exciting goals.
1. Run 900 miles in 2015.
2. Run a half marathon.
3. Compete in a sprint distance triathlon.
4. Run a full marathon.
Now I know what you’re thinking. Daaaaamn girl that’s a lot. I don’t think that you can do all that. I think you’re trying to do too much. And you know, maybe you’re exactly right. But guess what. I’m excited nonetheless. This past fall I’ve seen myself train for a half marathon under pretty ridiculous conditions (read: working 50 ish hours a week, spending all my other free time in theme parks, and only sleeping 6 hours a night). No, I didn’t get my best time. BUT! I think I can work harder. I think I can expect more of myself. That’s the only way to get better, right?
What I’m saying may sound a tad harsh, but here’s the deal. Just because something is a little far-fetched doesn’t mean it isn’t worth pursuing. In my mind I see it as more of a challenge and makes me want to achieve it even more. Hard goals? Work harder. Sounds about right to me.
Here’s to asking more of myself in 2015. Let’s get em.
