One thing I like about running is the ability to set and achieve goals.
  • First, there's finish a marathon
  • Then, finish a marathon in a semi-respectable time (say 4:30)
  • Then, personal bests (4:30, 4:00, 3:30)
  • Then, qualify for Boston (3:10)
  • Then, qualify for the Olympic trials (2:22 hahaha)

Of course, at some point I'll have to squeeze in an Iron Man triathalon as well...

When I first started, I set a cascading series of goals.

1. Finish the marathon at all.
2. "Finish" the marathon, ie, complete it in the allowed time.
3. Beat Georgia's Uncle Ron.
4. Finish in under five hours.

I'm down to the last one.
