2015 Goals

I’ve been putting off this post not because I was afraid to post it but because I really wanted to take some time to confirm what I actually wanted to do this year. It’s not that different from last year but it is at the same time. Last years goals can be found here and then what I accomplished here.


  • Yoga 3x week
  • Cross train more – strong body (not weight focused, not fitness competition focused just stronger all over).
  • Stretch more after running / working out (avoid injury)
  • Take a pottery class *new interest*
  • Take a photography class/course *has been on my bucket list for 5-6 years*


  • Date nights / lunches with my husband
  • More patience with my girls
  • Play outside *all year round*
  • Family adventures together

  • Run a sub 2 hour Half Marathon (currently 2:05:10)
  • Run a FULL Marathon – holy shit, I can’t believe I wrote that on the blog as it’s been going through my thoughts for weeks now…okay months!
  • Total mileage for the year: 1250 kilometers.

  1. Love it! First, yes, if you can run a half you can run a full. You are more than ready for that challenge. And the training for it will push you over 1250k on the year. Embrace it, embrace the strength and the lifestyle that comes with it and all of the rest of your goals will fall into place. Well, I should say “embrace it and blog about it”. ha! Speed follows endurance. For me, getting my 5k times below 26 minutes was really hard. But once the endurance (and consistent training) falls into place, the speed will come. Good luck!

    My goals for the year just published this morning too. 6-10 marathon+ races and getting a 50 miler done are the big ones.

  2. Yaay for having a marathon goal. No better way to do it than to put it on the list. Pick one with good timing so that you can train during the best months for you. All your goals are great! I’m always too chicken to put my goals out there.

    • It’s kinda scary! Yes, no better way then to share it on here…that’s for sure! I’m kinda thinking about a spring one which means I should be starting my training this week – eek! If not, I have my eye on one in the fall that I’ve wanted to do for a while now. I was chicken too – until today πŸ™‚

  3. What?! A full? You are so ready and I am so excited for you. I love the training process of the full marathon. I think you will really enjoy. I loved all of your goals. Such a smart and positive look out on…..everything!

  4. YAY!!! So glad you decided to take the plunge on running a full! It was my favourite part of running so far!!! I’m looking forward to seeing how your training goes! Congrats on an awesome choice πŸ™‚

  5. I’m loving all your goals, especially the marathon! How exciting! It was around this time last year that I decided I wanted to run a full, too. Once you know that feeling of training for and completing a marathon, nothing is ever the same! It’s hard, all of it, but I have yet to meet a marathoner who regrets crossing that finish line.

    Keep us posted! Look forward to hearing all about it this year!

  6. Those are great resolutions. I haven’t made any. I have found that they’re not really for me. I make small goals all the time but setting one big bunch at the start of the year is just too much. I am going to continue to aim for a minimum of 4 workouts per week though.

    • It’s funny, I have a hard time with the word resolutions and I think that’s why I used the word goals. They are goals I want to work towards not a habit I want to break or make. I like small goals too! Working out 4 times a week is a pretty good goal to work towards and I’m sure you’ll do it no problem Abbi!
