Let's go!

Happy new year! I hope everyone had a nice New Year's Eve and has enjoyed the start of 2010 so far. I had a great time with fun friends on NYE/the early morning hours of New Year's Day. And I followed up the festivities with an easy 5-miler on the 1st so, all in all, a positive start to the year!

But now, it's time for me to set out my 2010 goals!

Last year, I started January with one set of goals that I quickly re-adjusted (in early March, I think) because I hadn't really thought out the original set well enough. Then, my re-adjusted goals were a little weird. So this year I hope to avoid setting scrap-worthy goals that are quickly followed by weird goals. Good plan, huh?

OK, so. Here they are. My 2010 (running-related) goals:

  • To run strong and well throughout the year. I ran through 2009 without injury (some nagging soreness here and there notwithstanding) and I would like to do that again in 2010. If I continue to listen to my body, keep up with the cross training and run smart I believe I can easily achieve this goal.
  • To set at least one new PR. Last year, I wanted more than almost anything to run a sub-23 minute 5K and set a PR at 22:56 or better. This year, I'm expanding on that goal. I would like a PR and will take one in any distance that I have raced so far: 5K, 3.5m, 4m, 10K, 15K, marathon.
  • To run outdoors more often than indoors. I mostly do this now and with my new headlamp and decent cold-weather running gear I should be all set for success here.
  • To meet some other running bloggers. This one should be a piece of cake since I'm planning to run the HMRRC Winter Marathon Relay with Suzy and Amanda. But, maybe I'll meet others? Who knows!
  • To run 1010 miles for 2010. I ran 904 in 2009 so 1010 should be no problem!
  • To break the death-grip that is my Starburst jellybean addiction. I was practically shaking just typing that. I lur-ur-ur-urve the Starbusrt jellybeans. They are my thing. But too much of a good thing is actually rotten so I would do well to cut back on the jellybeans. For real this time. Yes, I've quit before. This time will be different. How? I don't know! But it will!
As you can see, I'm all about setting myself up for success and I believe I can succeed in meeting these goals. Maybe not the last one but everyone has to have a stretch goal, right?

Over the course of the year, I'm sure I'll set some additional, short-term goals that will probably support at least one of these goals in some way. That's the way I do it. Let's just hope I don't scrap these goals in March. I doubt I will!

OK, yay! My goals are out there! I'd better get to work :-)

If you're interested, I wrote about running resolutions and suggestions for enhancing your running in 2010 over here.

Have a great week, everyone!

I'm a sucker for jelly belly jelly beans. Unfortunately, they don't go well with the eating clean thing.

good luck in 2010!!

Red startburts jelly beans= YUMM!!!!

Katie A. said...

I would have never guessed you had an addiction to jellybeans! Hahaha! Very cool goals - all very achievable, too! Can't wait to see what 2010 brings for ya! :)

Chic Runner said...

ha ha ha, the starburst one is my favorite! :) You can accomplish all these and more. I wish I would be able to meet you too :)

Katie said...

I've never tried the starburst jelly beans. If I started I probably couldn't stop! Great list of goals. I think it would be fun to organize a capital district/upstate NY blogger meetup!

J said...

Do you think you may run the Boilermaker this year? It would be fun! Im in for the 1010 miles this year too!!

Tina @GottaRunNow said...

My jelly bean tip: don't even let them land in your grocery cart!

Stephen said...

Nice blog. I'm have a teeny addiction for Jelly Babies and Kendal Mint Cake (which isn't a cake at all).

Heather said...

Great goals for 2010. Happy New Year!

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

Great goals!! I would love a PR in ANy of my distances as well..

Hugs to 2010

Quix said...

Great goals, they sound reasonable to me. When I'm running a lot, chocolate chips are my vice (right from the package in the freezer to my mouth, yes, I know that's horrid).

I only logged 532 miles last year (but I only started counting in April so I'm thinking maybe 650-700 total), but for a long time my "long" runs were only 5 miles. And I barely ran this summer. Considering I've got lots of long distance training planned this year I might actually break 1000 too...crazy.

Diana said...

Sounds like some really great goals! I hope they all go well.
OH, the starburst jelly bellies are good! Love red and purple. Yum. They're not allowed in my house! lol.

Stacey said...

Great goals. I'd like to meet other bloggers as well. Happy new year!

RunToTheFinish said...

Suzy said...

Yay for meeting other bloggy friends. :D Your goals look great. BTW, I can't wait to run the Marathon Relay!

Meg Runs said...

So Starburst jellybeans aren't okay? I LOVE those! How about candycorn?

Lisa said...

Best wishes with your goals!

lindsay said...

i love reading everyone's goals for the year :) i'm glad i'm not the only one behind on declaring them, though at least you won't be like a week behind! lol.

good luck with your goals! i have the same problem with m&m's, i'm sure you're aware ;) extra luck with the starburst jellybeans.

MCM Mama said...

I'd love a PR this year, particularly in the marathon. This will only be my second one (and may be my last), so I'd really like to rock it.

Good goals!

EndorphinBuzz said...

Best of luck reaching your goals, I'm sure you will do well.

Becca said...

Great goals!! Good luck with breaking that Starburst Jellybean addiction...sounds tough!

Lindsey @ EatReadRun said...

Hi Felice! I'm originally from Latham, N.Y. and I am a runner as well. I found you via Katie's Fit To Wed blog. I love your 2010 goals - some of mine are similar. And I am dying to break 24 minutes in a 5K - I'm soo close!

Anyway - just wanted to drop you a line to let you know I enjoyed reading your blog.
