Looking ahead to 2018

With only a few weeks left before the New Year, I’ve started to take some time to plan what I want to accomplish in 2018. One of my goals is to improve my 5km time. With ambitious business goals as well, I know that this won’t be easy to accomplish without careful planning. Therefore, I’ve already taken the time to map out my training plan, and the races I plan to run. Now the key is to stick to my plan!

What are your goals in 2018?

    My 2018 goal for my power walking is to do as many half marathons that I can and do them in less than three hours.

      Thanks Melissa! Great goal! Any idea on how many you think you might be able to complete in a year?

    One of my goals for 2018 is to keep running through the winter. I have not done that since moving here from a warmer area years ago.

      Great goal! I started running outside throughout the winter a few years ago. Proper clothing is key! Having running buddies helps a lot as well – I joined H+P for that reason!

      Thanks Adam!

    My goal is to run a half marathon before I finish my PhD at the end of next year!

    • Michael Hewitson December 13, 2017 8:22 am

      Thanks Celia! Any idea what half marathon you are going to do?

    My goal is to run a marathon this year. I have young kids and minimal time to train, but need to take time for myself each week. A longer race goal will push me to have a couples hours to focus on myself each week.

      Awesome goal and not easy to do with young kids – love that you are taking it on. Any specific marathon in mind?

  • Nicole December 14, 2017 6:54 am

    My 2018 goal is a half marathon!

    • Michael Hewitson December 14, 2017 8:06 am

      Thanks Nicole! Great goal!

      Great goals Dan!! Thanks for sharing.

    Run more regularly and make it a priority for myself. Signing up for events forces me to keep up!
