My Goal for 2012

4 Jan

Happy New Year fraaands! (it sounds like friends, I swear…)

Here it is. My personal goal for the new year. I’m going to run, nay, *pwn* The Broad Street Run in May! For those of you not familiar with this crazy adventure, it is a 10 mile road race down the center of Flipadelphia.

2012 Broad Street Run!!!

I’ve never been really good at sticking with goals, but I think 2012 is going to be my year. 🙂 Just a little background: I cannot stand running. I’m starting with the treadmill and working my way to the outside when it gets warmer. I’ve already committed to run a 5K when I go to San Diego in April for the Society of Industrial and Organizational Psychology annual conference. I may throw in a full round of P90X if I’m feeling sassy! But I won’t get ahead of myself. I’m starting with realistic short-term goals to make my way up to Broad Street.

Studies show that writing down your goals increases the probability of success. Also, having some of the the coolest GAs ever run it with me doesn’t hurt! Hooray for Ali, Sophie, and Courtney! We need an awesome team name. Any suggestions?

What has been the most difficult goal you’ve set for yourself??
