2020 membership giveaway from My Next KW Home

Is it too early to start getting excited for 2020?

I’m putting together some big professional, personal, and of course, active goals. Professionally, my business is growing and with Laura joining the team, we hope to achieve a greater work-life balance in 2020!

As for my active goals, 2019 was a really good year for me. Several PBs (including the half marathon!) has me eager to see what I can accomplish next year. Run Waterloo has a unique way of measuring performance with RW Boost. This year I bested my 2018 score – in the hoodie zone both years – and I hope to increase my score again in 2020. To achieve this, I know it will require training, dedication, participation, trying some new things, and some PBs along the way to earn enough points to beat my 2019 score!

As you know, I’m a big fan (and sponsor) of Run Waterloo. I really believe in the mission and the community and I’m happy to be involved. So my goals tie into the great giveaway I have this month:

2020 Membership Contest

Post your active 2020 goal(s) in the Blue Tuesday facebook event. Two contestants as of December 2 at 9 p.m. will win a 2020 membership ($50 value). If you have already purchased a membership, you can gift it to a friend.

I’m really looking forward to seeing what everyone is planning for 2020!

For my goal, the RW Boost program is just one of the many, many benefits of a Run Waterloo membership. I’m already registered and you should too – maybe with a free entry!

  • Kelly Hargreaves December 2, 2019 10:33 am

    2020 will be the year I bounce back! It’s time to put the work in. This would help keep me on track. My goals are small in comparison to others. I would like to run a sub 30 5 km and run another half marathon.
    Thank you for the opportunity Michael!

    • Michael Hewitson December 2, 2019 11:14 am

    “Active goals for 2020” include trying to get my 5km time back to where it was pre baby and pre broken ankle. Also, lifting more weights and trying to incorporate something weekly I’ve havent done before- like swimming or badminton!

    • Michael Hewitson December 2, 2019 3:29 pm

      These are all great goals Katie! Thanks for sharing!

  • Jana Campbell December 2, 2019 4:27 pm

    • Michael Hewitson December 2, 2019 8:44 pm

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing Jana!

  • Caitlin Lovick December 2, 2019 4:27 pm

    My goal is to do my first marathon! A i’m 21 and have done a half marathon the last 2 years and hoping to step it up to a full. It’s hard to fit training in with school (Pharmacy) but I will be going on a co-op work term January-April and am hoping I will find a more consistent schedule to stick to!! I’ve convinced my mom to train for the half and working on my dad and one of my friends. As summer rolls around I want to test out some triathlon training (I HATE swimming) and see how that goes! Best of luck to me haha

    • Michael Hewitson December 2, 2019 8:43 pm

      Thanks Caitlin! Sounds like you have a great crew to cheer you on and keep you motivated so you can achieve your goals!

  • Alison Fox December 2, 2019 4:38 pm

    I’d really just love to run happy and healthy. But my secondary goals are to run my 3rd marathon and first in Canada at Toronto Waterfront and working towards a sub 1:50 half marathon.
    Finally beat my old half marathon PB after 2 years 1 month and 16 days.

    • Michael Hewitson December 2, 2019 8:43 pm

      Thank you for sharing Alison! I agree happy and healthy is important!

  • Greg Huszarik December 2, 2019 5:03 pm

    Set PB in 10k (current PB is 42:00) and finish in top 10 in RW Boost in 2020. I’d like to also take a run at beating my record for the Baden Hill Sprint (part of the Baden Road Races).

    • Michael Hewitson December 2, 2019 8:41 pm

      Thanks Greg! Challenging yet achievable!

  • Kim Austin December 2, 2019 9:05 pm

    I want to run a faster 10 km race!
