2017 Goals, OH HEY 5k

2017 has started off strong with a group run of 2.16 and then 2.17 miles with Best Foot Forward (and quick chat about sharing meals). My favorite restaurant trick is to split a meal with friend or eat half and take the other half home. The first November Project of the year was also a good one (pop-up at the Tribune Tower).

BBF New Year’s Run 2017

New Year, New Me? Ehh, I’m all about self improvement, year round! But it is the beginning of the year, so I’ve set some goals.

Goals

  1. Yoga! Finish Yoga Teacher Training and start teaching! That’s right in less than a month, I’ll be a legit Yoga Teacher with a fancy certificate and everything.
  2. Happiness/ Finding myself! Continue reining in the honesty/ keeping the filter on. 🙂 Continue doing things that make me happy- Running, Yoga, Brunch, nutrition work, etc.
  3. Race Smart! Since, I’m still currently injured, I’ve committed 2017 to year of short distance races. Oh hey 5k!! 5ks and weird distances only! Pss…I’m also excited to be a Chicago Athlete Ambassador (look for race recaps from me on their page).

Races currently on the books:

January 28th: F3 5k– Holy Smokes, I’m really training for it. It’s only taken me 3 attempts! 2 years ago, I volunteered. And last year, I was unable to train.

March 11th:Get Lucky 7k– A unique distance and cool swag!

April 15th: Quarter Marathon– My ONLY marathon of the year.

April 23rd: Good Life Race– I missed this race year. I’m glad to be doing it this year. It’s Oak Park’s finest!

May: TBD. Currently looking at 2 5k options- One in Colorado and one in Chicagoland. Maybe both!

July: Chinatown 5k and Hemingway 8k

October: Chicago International 5k

December: Chi-town Rising NYE 5k

Here’s to 2017 being a great year!!
