I hope everyone had a fantastic and safe New Years! I spent my final evening of 2014 bartending:
Last photo of me in 2014!
It was a crazy night at work (4PM-2:45AM!), so yesterday was a R & R day for me. I slept in and then saw Into The Woods with a friend…
I wanted to see it because I performed in the pit orchestra for the stage play when I was in high school and I never got to see the actual show. It was an adorable movie, and the cast was great!
TODAY, however, I was more productive and I set out on my first run of 2015! I ran 5 miles through The City…
…and I feel ready to resume a regular training schedule again. I would really, really like to be ready for the Oakland Running Festival Half Marathon on March 22nd as it is one of my FAVORITE events. Now that the holidays are over and my life has calmed down somewhat, I should have plenty of time (12 weeks of training!) to prepare.
Like every new year, I can’t help but feel like a new chapter of my life is starting! The date change is merely symbolic, but it is a great starting point to refresh your life and set new goals for yourself. I’ve never officially made New Years resolutions, but every year at this time I like to make a few running goals.
Last year I had a long list of goals I published on my blog, and I did achieve many of them-including goal numero uno: break 2 hours in the half marathon! I also thought I could potentially run one race a month, but my schedule (work whaat?) and bank account wouldn’t allow for it. So! This year I’m going to keep things a little more simple.
Goal #1: Beat 4:39:01 at the San Francisco Marathon
Goal #2: Break 1:55 in a half marathon
Goal #3: Run a race while Rich and I are in Europe (potentially the Cork Half Marathon on June 1st)
Goal #4: Run my first trail race!
There you have it, my 2015 running goals!
What are YOUR running goals for the New Year??
