2012 Goals Results

  • Run a sub-4 marathon.  Not even close.  I ran 1 marathon for fun, and dropped from the full to the half in my two goal marathons.
  • Run 200 miles in a month.  I think I hit 140 last spring before realizing I didn't have nearly as much time to put in to running.
  • Run 1500 miles for the year.  Uh no.
  • Run a sub 1:50 half marathon.  Nada.
  • Break 49 in a 10k.  I didn't even run a 10k.  What in the world.
  • Finally nab the 22:xx 5k.  Or a 5k
  • Run 100 miles in each month.  5/12 I lasted until May.  Definitely a goal I'd like to repeat for 2013!  Although I may be setting myself up for failure if June and July classes are anything like they were in 2012.

  • For the love of God develop a weight routine.  Even if that means getting a personal trainer for a session or two.  YAY!  I started going to circuit weights!
  • Practice yoga more. Attend all the studios in town so you don't have that "first timer fear" holding you back from going when you have time and gift certificates to attend!  WHOO!!  I attend a weekly yoga class and practice pretty regularly on my own.
  • Remember to do core work outside of bikini season.  It'll make you a stronger runner.  DING DING!  Realizing this will also help with my injuries, I've been doing better with this.
  • Remember your daily vitamins...uh...daily.  50/50  If I'm running 40+ miles a week, I'm pretty diligent about taking it.  Otherwise, nada.
  • Maintain a 4.0 for grad school.  Winner winner.  4.0 through Fall 2012 semester.  (And for the record, I'm prouder of this than any PR I could've set.)
  • Don't get overwhelmed by the stress of school (particularly spring 2012 and summer 2012, as I've been told they're intense). Continue to be thrilled that you're following your dream.  Uh fail on #1, win on #2.  Overwhelmed continues to be my middle name.  1000% worth it though.
  • Read 52 books.  I read 61 in 2011, but I was only in school for 4 months.  I think one a week is a tough enough goal with that factored in.  Uh..... 110 and counting.  This clearly was a non-issue.  I saw reading "for fun" as still furthering my future career marketability, so if I wasn't studying on my lunch break/before bed, I was reading for fun.
  • Don't let my "to-read" list on goodreads exceed 200 books.  It's currently at 170ish.  So I need to finish at roughly the same rate as I add them to that list.    300+ and counting.  But that's just because I've found so many great books to add!  
  • Don't start anymore book series until the currently started ones are completed Pretty Little Liars (7/11), Dexter (1/5), Sookie Stackhouse (7/11), Uglies (3/4), Matched (2/3), Divergent (1/3).  Uh no.  There are so many great series out there.  Clearly I need to read them ALL.

  • Keep a more organized and tidy apartment to further ready myself for future pug bestie(s).  No, I'm still a mess of a mess, but little pug doesn't chew on anything so I haven't felt the need to change.  Now if we brought home a pug brother or sister.....
  • Keep plugging away at the101 in 1001 project.  Did some work on this, especially in the last 6 months!
  • Complete Project 365.  To be honest, I forgot I was doing this until I looked at this list in late November.  So yeah, I failed.
  • Plan a fall 2013 graduation vacation present and start setting aside $$ for it asap.  I'm toggling between the Athens Marathon or the Goofy Challenge.  Quite the difference, I know.  //I'm toying around with some ideas.  We'll see what I land on.  It won't be as fancy or expensive as Athens or Goofy though.  Sadsies.
  • Man up and get your wisdom teeth removed.  (eep!)  Fail.  Still holding on to my wisdom!

You still did pretty good with your goals considering I'm sure grad school takes up a lot of time (at least it does for me). I'm actually planning on doing Goofy in 2014 as a graduation present to myself! But I'm sure Athens would be amazing as well!!

Sounds like you are doing fantastic! Great job on the 4.0 and devouring all those books. Woohoo!
