New journeys for a new year

2013 was a big year for me.

I ran two marathons, including a runDisney coast-to-coast ultra in memory of two fallen firefighters. I PRed in nearly every distance and became an Oiselle team runner.

I covered several high-profile trials at work and for the second straight year, ran more than 1,000 miles.

So what’s next for 2014?

Honestly, I am still trying to figure that out. I have several spring races planned and I would like to run a fall marathon, but I also want to do something new and different. What? I’m not just sure.

I don’t make resolutions. But I know I need to work toward a few fitness and overall life goals:

I need to work on my core, and not make excuses when I’m not in the mood or the weather makes travel difficult.

I need to drink less coffee and more water.

I need to clean put my closets, become more organized and purge unnecessary items with a mass decluttering.

I need to be more patient.

I need to step out of my comfort zone and try something new.

I need to be better about living in the moment, and just go with it.

So I plan to live by this mantra in 2014, live each day better than the day before. If I follow that plan, I can’t go wrong.

What suggestions do you have for my coming year? What should I try? What are your 2014 goals?

  1. I have my goals posted on my blog, but I call them goals, not resolutions. My biggest one is to run 14 in 14. At this point it might be walking, but I’m gonna do it!

  2. Have you tried obstacle course runs yet? Warrior dash? Or something a little less serious like the dirty girl? That’s new and different!

    • I did one back in 2011 and Honestly, I’m not a fan. I had battle scars for weeks. I actually signed up for the Warrior Dash last year but skipped it because I was concerned about injuries and I didn’t want to be electrocuted. (!!!) I know people love those events, but they just aren’t for me. Thanks for the suggestion though Keri!
