With my first marathon completed (February 19th 2012) and almost a full year of my healthy hair care journey acheived (May 2012)...my goals now are to stay vegan, stay running, and continue forward. I can already see ultramarathons and trail marathons in my future. Plus lots more interesting vegan and hair experiments. So I hope you continue to stay with me and join in. You all help to keep me honest.
It's that time again. Honestly, 2012 is flying by already. I can't believe we're done with January so quickly. Looking back, I pretty much only accomplished the marathon parts of myJanuary Goals.
The hotel and rental car are booked!
My race day gear is set!
I've also got my Sports Beans!
Most importantly, there are NO INJURIES TO SPEAK OF!
That's the easy part. Now I'm working on tapering (currently on Week 1, Day 3...more on that later) and getting my mind right. Running isn't only physical, a lot of it's mental, and I feel like life is starting to get a bit hectic for me right now. So I'm trying to not lose focus.
My main goal for February is this:
Run my butt off at that marathon! Enough said.
There are also some important changes brewing in my life. I don't want to say anymore until I'm sure of what is going to happen. But to deal with these sudden changes my goals are simply these:
And above all HAPPY!
Change can be scary, and trust me, I've gone through so many changes these past four years. My past experiences have also taught me that sometimes change is for the best. It should be embraced even if scary.
It's also taught me to be grateful for what I have, now, in this moment. Because who knows what will happen tomorrow?
So wish me luck for this following month because I will need the support!
