2010 Goals:

1. Run at least two half marathons, a 10K, and several 5Ks over the year. Get a PR in each distance at least once during the year.
2. Get my weight down below 140 lbs. and keep it below that once I get there.
3. Strength train at least 2X per week and do a cardio workout at least 4X per week most weeks of the year.
4. Take swimming lessons.
5. Pick a mini-triathalon in 2011 and start training for it.
6. Put together a plan for the career change I want to make in 2011.
7. Get and keep my entire house clean enough for company at any time.
8. Cook dinner at least 3 times per week. (Pathetic, I know! But I rarely cook!)
