Here are the goals I made at the beginning of summer:
- Get into a wicked awesome fitness level.
- Complete the bike I am building.
- Go on a few camping trips.
- Eat good food.
- Enjoy life.
Now that I am entering a new season, I think it is time to make new goals. These will mostly cover this upcoming cross country season and fall semester of school. I think goals are important in life because what else do we have to look forward to without them. Another word for goals could be dream. This reminds me of a quote I heard Ryan Hall once say, "When your memories are greater than your dreams, you are already beginning to die." That is so true. We can't sit here and reflect on our past, but have to keep setting our new goals (dreams) for for life to continue. So, after some reflecting, here are my fall of 2009 goals:
- Remember November
- Keep the Wednesday Trail Tradition Alive
- Run a Hangover Long Run Every Sunday
- Keep My GPA Above a 3.5
For now, those are my goals. Many goals are also made up in my mind, such as continuing to eat healthy, staying in a wicked awesome fitness level, and enjoying life. Those goals have just continued over into this set of goals. I did not write down my individual running goals, such as goal times, team placement, and stuff like that. I do have an idea of where I would like to be though. These things I will keep to myself. I do know that the first goal, Remember Nomvember, is a team goal and that my individual running goals all go towards achieving that goal.
Summer is ended shortly and cross country camo starts soon. These 10 days will be some really fun days. We will all meet the new freshmen and evaluate where we all stand based on summer training. There will be time trails, easy runs, easy runs turned into hard runs, hard workouts, morning runs, and many many memories. One of the best times to be a Bear. As for me, I am just Running Free!
