I have been contemplating what I want 2010 to mean to me. My first real year of complete running, running on my time. There is so much possibility in the days that lay ahead in this year. But there is one thing - I have had little desire for racing recently. I haven't even thought about running any races this year except my usual Boilermaker 15k in July. Its a hard feeling to describe especially since I have spent the last 13 years of my life training for something at all times. I honestly don't know what to do next. For the first time in my life since I was 10 I have nothing to train for and maybe I need to go without racing for a while....
And so here are my resolutions and goals (minus a racing calender):
1. My mom gave me a five year diary for Christmas. Each day has 5 lines that can be filled with short thoughts. I want to write in it each day just like my mom has been doing since before I was born. Last year I tried to do a gratitude journal and I failed but I think this is a more manageable goal for me.
2. Be more patient and understanding. Enough said there.
1. Build up mileage and run 1010 miles in 2010. I have wanted to run 1000 miles in a year for a while now.
2. Make sure I enjoy running and that it doesn't become a chore.
So there it is - short and sweet. I thought making a few goals/resolutions would be the best way to start out this year. Once it becomes more clear to me what I want to accomplish then I will add more goals!
Happy (late) New Year!!
