New Year's Resolutions!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and are slowly getting back into the grind of work, school, running, training, etc.

As for me, I'm in sunny Florida visiting my boyfriend for the next 3 weeks enjoying every second of the sunshine and not having anything to do! I basically wake up every morning, read a little bit, walk the dog, hang out with my man when he gets home for lunch and then read some more, watch TV and cook dinner. It's amazing and I couldn't be happier not having anything to do!

Don't get too jealous though friends, in 3 weeks time, I'll be flying back to the cold, snowy climate of New York City, moving into a new apartment, going back to my 3 jobs and continuing grad school with another 4 classes. So I'm enjoying this while I can!

Anyway, with the New Year comes New Year's Resolutions...which I NEVER make but this year, I'm setting some serious goals for myself. Since this is a blog about running, I won't bore you with the other stuff, but here are my running resolutions for 2011!
  • Run one race every month of 2011!
  • Run 9 NYRR sponsored events and volunteer for one to gain guaranteed entry into the 2012 NYC Marathon!
  • Run a sub-2:00 half-marathon in NYC in March! 
  • PR in a 10k race.
  • Run a sub-4:00 marathon
  • Avoid neglecting this little bloggy over here! 
These goals are a little ambitious, but I'm excited about it! Oh and the idea for the "run a race every month" came from this little blog I checked out today: Run for the Bling of It. Let us know if you sign up for the challenge! My first race of 2011 will be a 5k next week here in the Sunshine State! It'll be my first 5k! I'll let you know how it goes!
