This year I am making a point to write out my goals. One of my favorite sayings/lyrics is "If you don't know where you're going/you might end up somewhere else." So I am writing my goals to know where I am going! I am sharing them with everyone so that they are published and I will be more likely to stick to them!
Here are my 2015 Fitness Goals:
Run at least 1 race each month
I almost completed this in 2014. I only missed running a race in June, but I DID volunteer for a race that month, so I kind of did this in 2014. It wasn't planned though, so for 2015 I am making it a point to run a race each month.
Complete Reach the Beach
The Reach the Beach course runs right through my neighboring towns. There is even a stop at my old high school! I never realized before this year when I got into running. I drove through town as everyone was running and I beeped at people to pump them up a little. That 1 minute of beeping made me so happy and excited for them. Ever since then I have been dead set on running Reach the Beach in 2015. I am already putting together a team and plan to be registered in January.
Hike a mountain
All through the summer I saw so many local friends posting hiking pictures and I was so jealous! I am going to hike at least one mountain in 2015.
Earn a Millennium Running Series Jacket
I intended to earn my Millennium Running Series Jacket in 2014, but once May came around I missed one race and completely quit! Not this year! My goal is published and I am going to do it!
Run Rock n Roll Las Vegas 1/2 Marathon with Team Challenge New England
My first half marathon with Team Challenge New England was so fun! I can't wait to join them again for another season and do it for the Rock n Roll Las Vegas 1/2 Marathon. Everyone from the team who has done this race tells me it is AWESOME! This is a very flat course like my second half marathon, so it should be comparable. I didn't train for that race at all and really started to struggle during the last 2-3 miles. Following through on training for this race I should be able to grab a new half marathon PR.
Coach Girls on the Run
Coaching Girls on the Run in the Fall was amazing! It was so fun and my sister is going to join me for coaching the Spring 2015 season. TBD if I will coach Fall 2015 since I will be training and fundraising with Team Challenge New England.
Run a 25 min 5K
This was something that I wanted to accomplish in 2014 but I didn't commit to my training for it. I run a lot of 5Ks but my times don't vary much. I need to push myself for speed this year!
What are your 2015 Fitness Goals?
Hi, I'm Jessie!
I live in NH with my husband and our pup. My favorite things are coaching Girls on the Run, eating good food that I didn't have to cook, helping other people work on their health, volunteering for and running races, watching tv, doing yoga, and spending too much time on social media. #Balance
