2012 is coming to a close and it is time to start thinking about what I want to accomplish in 2013. For the past few years, my yearly goals aka resolution have been fitness related. I believe last years was to run 12 races in 2012. Honestly, I am not sure if I even reached it.
The whole idea is to AIM for a goal.
This year, honestly, I am not sure if I want a fitness goal. Weeks ago, I was going to aim to do 3 half marathons in 2013 but I am seriously out of shape. My hips start to hurt around mile 2 rather mile 4. Before I can train to do another half marathon, I need to get back into shape!
With that in mind, I think I want to work on something that I seem to struggle saving.... money! Initially, I wanted to aim for $2013.00 but that is a bit unrealistic for me for my level of income. I am debating on saving 200.13 for the entire year OR $20.13 weekly or $20.13 monthly.
You know even as I say this I realize I really do want to make Bjorklund Half Marathon (Grandma's [Half] Marathon) happen this year. It is something I have wanted to do for a while. Unfortuately, it is a lottery so I might not even get in!
Putting yearly goals aside, I will be starting in 2013 with all kinds of new changes. I recently graduated college with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. In addition to this, I have a new apartment with roommates.
Here's to 2013...
