Adjusting your Goals

Hi everyone,

The weather sure is getting more spring-like here! The down side is my life has been crazy busy, preventing me from getting in all the training I would like. I only have 2.5 weeks of this semester left, so it’s down to the wire.

When I set goals for myself, I hate when I don’t reach them. My sub 2 hour half marathon was a goal I set for myself in January. As of right now, I haven’t been able to put the time into my training that I thought I was going to be able to. It was stressing me out – big time.

This week, I decided something. I wasn’t going to let this keep stressing me out. I WILL run a sub 2 hour half marathon, someday. It might not be my May 5th half marathon though. So, I need to set a more realistic goal for myself then, right?

How about running along side my best friend, Erynn, on her first half marathon (whoo hoo!) in tutus?? I think YES! It is called the Diva Half Marathon, so I figure we should dress the part and have fun. I’m done stressing about a time goal. This is my vacation for the year and I am now determined to have fun and experience Erynn’s first half marathon with her.

It took a lot for me to admit I’m not on track to meet my sub 2 hour goal, but it is all about mind set. You have to choose how you react to situations. I am choosing to positive and make the most out of this cool experience and my first run in San Francisco.

I’m looking forward to warmer weather and lots more running!

Keep Running!
