My Goals

Have you thought about what types of goals you would like to set for yourself lately? Goals shouldn't just be set as part of your New Year's Resolution. I got to thinking after reading this wonderful blog from Amanda @ Runninghood What are my goals? I have been so busy with multiple things lately, that I haven't taken the time to think about "me" lately. There are so many things that I want to do in life, but fear always holds me back. I have a huge list of things I want do, but things change when you have to grow up and do grown up things like get married, buy a house, etc.

I made this list about 2 weeks ago and I have successfully completed a couple of my goals. I am usually pretty good at keeping my resolutions with the new year so I am hoping that I can complete all of my goals so that I can continue to set new ones. 

Short Term Goals
* Bake pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting
* Finish my current read- "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest"
* Take the girls for a play date at Manito Park (Completed 10.24.11)
* Decorate the house for Halloween
* Try out Nectar (wine tasting bar in Spokane)
* Have a fun night out with friends (Completed 10.21.11)

Long Term Goals
* Spend more quality time with my husband
* Relax!
* Do at least one thing daily that makes me smile
* Find happiness
* Be more inspired (Blog to come soon about how I have been inspired recently)
* Live everyday with purpose
* Be more thankful for what I have
* Make more "me" time
* Indulge in a massage, get a manicure, etc. (Completed 10.22.11 & made 2 appointments for November)
* Learn to say "no" sometimes- I can't please everyone and I am not superwoman (I wish!)

Running Goals
* Have fun
* Don't get so down and/or frustrated with an off training day
* Train with purpose
* Challenge myself daily
* Get another BQ
* PR at a 1/2 marathon before the end of 2011 (Completed 10.9.11 & 10.16.11)



  1. Love your goals! So obvious that you are living a life of purpose and you are set to reach the things you want! Inspiring! I love seeing others' goals...they motivate me! And you'll totally get that BQ. I have not been to Boston since 2004 so it will be fun to run again. I don't think you'll ever have a problem qualifying though. You'll smash that!

  2. Love this! And, like Amanda, I know you'll have no problem getting that BQ! You've totally got it!!

  3. Thank you lovely ladies! I am so freaking excited. Seriously, what nut is excited to run 26.2 miles?! ME! :)

  4. Really good idea! I have not written down goals in a long time. I need to do this. I like the fact you have already completed some of yours. Way to go! Thanks for the inspiration today :)


I love your comments & inspiration
