SQUEEE! I can't believe this happened!
Suffice it to say, I'm really looking forward to what 2016 has to offer and I have some big goals that I'll be targeting. Here's what I'll be working towards in 2016:
- Stay healthy. My ultimate goal for the new year is stay healthy and injury free. I'll be focusing on eating clean and cross training to build strength, flexibility and mobility.
- Run consistently. Burnout was my reality this year and I had no desire to really run at all, sometimes going weeks without getting in even a mile. This coming year I want to focus on running consistently at a minimum of 3 times a week, regardless of mileage or time.
- Marathon PR! I really wanted this to happen this year but it wasn't meant to be. Next year, I'll be coming out of the gate hungry and ready to make this a reality.
As far as races go, here's what my tentative race schedule is looking like for 2016:
Rio Grill Resolution Run, Carmel, CA - 01/01/16
Razorback 50k, San Martin, CA - 03/05/16
Hellyer Half Marathon, San Jose, CA - 03/20/16
American River 50, Auburn, CA - 04/02/16
Salinas Valley Half Marathon, Soledad, CA - 08/06/16
Two Cities Marathon, Clovis, CA - 11/06/16
Big Sur Half Marathon, Monterey, CA - 11/13/16
North Face Endurance Challenge SF - Marathon, Date TBD
That's my 2016 in a nutshell. If you're planning on being at any of the races I've listed, please let me know. I'd love to see you!
Hope you have a great New Year and I'll see you in 2016!
What are your goals for 2016? Do you have any fun plans for New Year's Eve?
