Rounding out 2014 and beginning 2015!

So it turns out I’m still terrible at keeping my blog updated.  2014 was a great running year for me, I was just shy of 500 miles for the year, completed 3 half marathons and many other shorter races. 2015 will be about building off the momentum I gained in 2014 and continuing to push myself.

Cheers! (Recovery Beer – Celebrating my finish at the 2014 Good Life Halfsy)

This year I want to run over 500 miles.  Doing so I hope to run a half marathon in under 2:10.  That would cut about 8 mins off my personal best. I’ll be signing up for the Lincoln Half Marathon and the Good Life Halfsy again. I also plan on pushing my fitness further this year. I just started the new Insanity Max 30.  It’s intense and a struggle for me but that is a good thing as I can only improve! The other thing I want to accomplish this year is to continue to inspire people to live a healthier lifestyle and grow my Beachbody Business. I’ve found I really enjoy helping people and I want to take my little side project further to get my debt paid off this year. I need to focus on what worked this past year and what I can learn from the things that didn’t work

I’ve got my list of goals, now my next step is to make a solid plan that I can follow up on. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you to make 2015 great! I’d be glad to help you in any way, whether it’s planning or accountability. We can accomplish a lot as a team. Leave a comment here or find me on Facebook and Twitter!

Fitness Goals for 2014

A new year means new goals.  I found it helpful to share my goals with others last year so here we are again.

  • Complete the Lincoln Half Marathon.  I ran this race in 2012 in 3:00:52. I sprained my MCL training for the race and thought I was healthy enough to compete. I ended up having to limp the last 5 miles so I’m hoping for a better experience this year.  I already have a new pair of shoes on the way (thank you Sierra Traiding Post for the great deal.). I’ve loved running in my Brooks Pureflows this year so I’m hoping I love the Pureflow 2s just as much if not more.

  • Lose 11 lbs. My goal last year was 20 lbs but I fell 6 lbs short of my goal. This year I want to get those 6 lbs plus another 5.  My plan is half marathon training, Focus T25 and Shakeology.
  • 5K in under 28 mins. Current personal best is 29:27.
  • Cross train by biking more this year. I didn’t get my bike out much in 2013 and that needs to change this year.

Do you have any goals for 2014? If so, feel free to add them to the comments below and we can work on obtaining them together.
