Another Monday rolls around and we edge ever nearer to 2020 and new goals and aims for the coming year. It feels like 2019 has been a bit of a non-event for me personally as injury caused me to change many of my plans. Yes, it’s a bit early to do a end of year round up, but I’m feeling I’m in a place to set new goals for the remainder of 2019 and on into 2020.
First though, a little about 2019 so far…
- I had to cancel one metric marathon (26.2km), two half marathons, five 10ks, and a 5.3 mile trail race
- I’ve ran in two Borders League (2018/19 season), one 2019/20 season, two 10ks, one 5 mile, and four 5k races
- I have ran/walked 13 parkruns, in six different locations
- I reached my parkrun 25 volunteer milestone
- I am calendar secretary and on the blogging team for my running club
- I started watercolour painting and joined an art class
- I have written 41 poems
- I have submitted my children’s book to publishers and agents
- I have started writing other children’s books
- I have become vegan
- I am more focused on minimising environmental impact
- I had to quit my samba drumming band
- I’ve had a new kitchen installed and a utility room created
- I have designed my own Christmas/greetings cards
- I have become a cat-mum!
Without stretching my brain too much that’s a pretty impressive list, and I’m sure there’s stuff I’ve missed.
Onto new goals and plans and hopes…
- to take part in all Borders League races (2019/20 season)
- to plan for and learn from the Christmas market stall
- to have a stall at International Women’s Day
- to work on my business plan – vague, I know
- to run a half marathon (or two)
- to continue painting and art class
- to visit the local art gallery every month
That’s a good start, I’m sure more goals will occur to me as the months go by.
Does anyone else feel in a similar transitional stage? Moving forward with positivity and enthusiasm?
