A new year...

I think now is a good time to look back at last year and set some goals for the new year.

- Maintained my weight loss for another year (that makes two).  
- Ran a total of 1,454 miles (not too shabby).
- Set several personal records (5k - 23:50, 8k - 39:40, marathon - 4:18:34) .  
- Finished three Boot Camp sessions - I have the t-shirts to prove it (well, all of them but that damn red shirt!!!) 
- Ran the Citadel Bulldog Challenge - my team came in third place (first co-ed civilian team).  
- Ran two marathons - Myrtle Beach Marathon (February) and Marine Corps Marathon (October) -now that's crazy
- Raised over $2,500 for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund

I look back on the training I completed for both marathons and I am amazed at how many things I thought were completely impossible.  I was so nervous and apprehensive about going out for such long distances.  I questioned myself prior to those long runs and celebrated after each one (who goes out for a twenty mile run on a Saturday morning at 4:00am???). 

Now to a brand new year.  I went out on the track this morning for my first workout of the year.  It was not too hard - I'm running a 5k in the morning.  It felt good to be out there (even if I did over sleep a little), to know that I was starting the year with the desire to keep moving. 

Here are a few of my goals for this year:

- Maintain my weight (maybe even lose five more pounds)
- Run a 5k under 23:50 (could happen in the morning)
- Run the Cooper River Bridge 10k under 52:00
- Run the Palmetto200 Relay
- Run the Qu'est-ce que c'est? 12 Hour Run (run more than 31 miles)
- Finish the Monumental Marathon in Indianapolis on my 40th birthday
- Finish a marathon under four hours

So there it is...  A list of goals...  In writing...  

Now all I have to do is run, run and run some more...
