Month: January 2014


Posted on

After a couple weeks I find I am less and less interested in being online. I have entered information overload. I have spent entire days just checking email, social media, and just reading articles online. I have started to tune out much of what I read now. I see the articles with interesting information related to health or listing some new targeted exercises. Too much information means too little is getting through. I know I want to use this information but the impulsive part of me just files it away and looks for the next interesting article. I am not going to do this anymore. I have shut off all notifications on my phone and I will only keep the application so I can have the Nike app post my runs. A friend recently told me about a nice trail for running that is actually right by my house. This will be ideal to continue my training for the ultramarathon. I ran this route a couple days ago and found I could have easily gone longer but I had to go pick the kids up from school.
More later.

2014 Goals

Posted on

First, I obviously did not meet my goal of 200 total posts by last night. I have quite a few unfinished drafts though.
Second, I have decided on a distance goal for this year. 1000 miles. This comes out to 2.75 miles a day. I think this is rather conservative but it is a start. I will focus on that one goal and go from there.
Third, I will set a goal of 52 posts for the year. Once a week. If I reach this early, I will decide how to proceed from there. If I reach the goal a year from now, I will be happy with that as well.
Fourth: love, laugh, smile, give, live, BE.
