2012 Goals

Happy New Year's Eve! Today's post will spell out my fitness goals for 2012 and I'll explain briefly why I want to accomplish some of them.

  • Run one race a month that is at least 13.1 miles long
  • Run a marathon in less than five hours.
    • Why? I think it would be awesome.  My Philadelphia Marathon time was so close!
    • My only planned 2012 Marathon is the New Jersey Marathon but if I don't make it then I'll add another.
  • Qualify for the 2013 New York City Marathon
    • Why? I want to run the New York City Marathon!
    • How?  Join New York Road Runners (done) and run at least nine NYRR races then volunteer at one.
      • If you want to do this too, you need to join NYRR by January 31, 2012.
  • Do at least 15 minutes of strength training every day
    • Why?  Get some tone other than in my legs, prevent leg injuries
      • I have a leg routine from my physical therapist
      • Do you have any favorite arm/ab/back routines?
  • Lose more weight
    • Why? Recently got engaged and want to look great on my wedding day; carrying less extra weight will make me faster!
    • By eating carefully and working toward my other goals, this should be easy!
Stay tuned for progress and wish me luck!  Also, join me in some of these races!
