2019 Goals

Welcome to the 2019 goal bandwagon.  I wasn't going to, but I usually do and then I did, so here it is.

A 48 hr PR and personal long that I am proud of - February.
Run an enjoyable marathon in Pittsburgh, train hard for the Pittsburgh 5k - May.
Add other races as we go through the year.

A damn good thrashing

Transition from having a credit line balance to having a savings account.  I am so close on this, no thanks to recent shenanigans of the car and dishwasher.

Following on from the money theme, I have nothing booked after my vacation renewal date in July. N o t h i n g.  It's so liberating.  In 2019 we want to take advantage of deals and be more spontaneous. For the past few years we've accounted for 100% of our vac days a year in advance, usually for races.  This year, no.  Imagine the possibilities!

Maldives, 1997.  I bet I thought I was fat.

Over Christmas I transferred a ton of our old vacation pics to a backup drive and online to OneDrive.  The old albums were taking up a lot of physical space so I've also been trying to capture digital photos of old prints (like that one^^).  Ongoing project.

Life and Fitness
Depression.  Functioning in general was a challenge last year and working out/training seemed impossible (and therefore it was impossible) for a lot of it.  I'm in a better place today and I know consistency is vital to not falling back into the abyss.  I need hard effort activity at least every couple of days.  I am back at strength training twice a week, Zumba starts Monday and I am already running and doing hills.  Although this has (rightly) taken priority over achieving specific training or race goals, I believe I will achieve better results as a byproduct of consistency and improved mental state.

Onward, one day at a time.
