What's next? Goals for 2015.
Honestly, it is hard to think about 2015 while I'm sitting here with ice on my knee and crutches by my side.
It seemed best to start by looking back at my Bucket List for 2014 for a little recap of my year. My goal to hit 1000 miles was curtailed by all of my injuries. I ran at least 2 new races during 2014: the TI Disco Fever 10K and the Ragnar Relay Cape Cod. Although I did not add another state to my places I have raced list, I did run a lot of miles in Vermont! Two new activities that I tried were Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Zip Lining. Sadly I was closed out of the coaching certification class, but I continued to make healthy food choices and fell in love with smoothies!
It didn't take long for the little walk down memory lane to get me thinking. What is next for me?
Rehab my knee - My first priority is to get back into my running shoes. My goal is to be logging miles by the end of January.
Build my overall strength - I want to take at least one cross training class every week and focus on my upper body strength so I'll be a better runner.
Volunteer at another race - I did this with MRTT at the GOTR Fall 5K and it was so amazing to be part of such a big day for so many runners. I'd love to volunteer at the Boston Marathon (fingers crossed).
Just run - That's it. No worries about distance, pace, or PRs. More group runs, more fun runs, more family runs.
Be the BEST Ambassador - It will be my mission to spread my love of running wherever I can: the high school Run Club, a National Running Day event, ZOOMA Cape Cod in September. (see discount on my sidebar!)
What's next for you?
Any big plans in 2015?
