My running season goals of 2017 were:
- To be social and branch out of solely running Ppark (Prospect Park)
- Graduate from the 5k’s with the tee shirt award to the 10k’s with the tee shirts AND medal awards
Achieved, done, concluded, fulfilled, ended, over and done with!!
Goals are the wish lists we formulate and attempt to complete… OR…fail while doing so.
At times, staying in ‘Kansas’ may be the road block which caused the goal failure to begin with. Comfort-ability does have its snags… BUT… so does taking that initial step to ‘make it happen’ and tripping, falling flat on your face and ending up in a hospital bed, thinking , ‘How the hell did that happen?’
Well, as John Lennon said, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”.
And so it does…life happens.
The running goals for 2017 were not going to happen if I continued to run alone in Ppark doing the same thing, the same way, everyday.
It had to come so I joined a running group, paid the joiner’s fee with money borrowed and not paid back. This major shift gave the best results as my running goals were met as well as having social running buddies. Aspirations and new goals are up a notch for 2018 (God willing because we know he can be tricksy sometimes).
There are no AND, OR ,BUT to change. No excuses.
Just do it.
