Goals Evaluation and Giveaway

First, the giveaway. It's not my giveaway, it's Tall Mom on the Run's! She's doing a Nuun giveaway. I've tried Nuun a few times and really enjoy that it's not as sweet as standard sports drinks. Head over to her site if you're interested in the giveaway, of course, for my own chances at the win I hope you stay away =).

I mentioned earlier this week that I was going to go back to my 9 goals for 2009 and evaluate. Below are my goals and progress, I'd say I'm well on my way to a great year!

Goal #1- Run 3 marathons. I’ve done two and have decided against running a third this year. Mostly due to burn out but also because as many of you know, I found my new love, triathlons!!!!

Goal #2- Half marathon in 2:15. I don’t think I ran enough half’s this year to tackle this goal. I only ran one and I only have one more on my schedule, Nike, which I am planning to run for fun. I am considering one more in October or November but haven’t made any final decisions. I think I will tackle this goal in 2010.

Goal #3- 1000 miles for the year. I’m currently at 602.19, I think I’ll get close to 1000.

Goal #4- 100 mile month. I smashed this during SD training. I had 3 months over 100 (March with 113.4; April with 131.8; May with 121).

Goal #5- Read 1 book a month. Miserable FAIL! I think I’ve read maybe 4 books total. Anyone with recommendations?

Goal #6- Contribute more to savings. This is getting better but I should be building savings more.

Goal #7- Pay off my car. SUCCESS, paid in full as of June!

Goal #8- Be more social. I think this is a success too, I’ve gotten much closer to the PBR’s.

Goal #9- Lose 15 lbs. FAIL. Still working on it. The Daily Plate is fantastic and I've been consistently using the site for awhile. I think I'm still trying to figure out how to fuel for workouts without going overboard. I will be going to Hawaii in October so my mini-goal is to work on toning up before my trip.
