Become Faster: This is going to be a fun goal to achieve! I want to eventually qualify for the Boston Marathon. I am not giving myself that lofty goal this year, I just want to improve my marathon time to sub 3:30. My current marathon PR is 3:47 and half marathon 1:39. I will have to work hard to accomplish this goal but if all goes well when 2014 comes around I should be under 3:30 for a full marathon!
Help People: The reason for InsaneMarathon.com is not so that I can brag about what races I have ran, the places I've traveled, products I have been lucky to try out, or how INSANITY and other workouts have changed my life. InsaneMarathon.com was created to help motivate others to never underestimate themselves. Anything you set your mind to is possible and if sharing my story and knowledge can help just one other person get our the door for their first 5k, complete INSANITY, or run a marathon using one of our free training plans this mission has been accomplished. One of the things I am going to be doing this year to help motivate more people is starting a run club in Tampa, FL for runners of all abilities. I will also be running free fitness and health challenges throughout the year. I want to motivate people to start something new to better their health and wellness. By the end of 2013 I want at least 30 success stories from people that were inspired and motivated through the work of InsaneMarathon.com!
Keeping Organized: One thing I have always thought about doing but never acted on was keeping an organized calendar. This year I have started doing this and I am going to continue to add to it and follow it all year long. I have set up multiple calendars for different tasks (personal, work, fitness, fun) and synched them with all of my devices. The hard part will be adding, editing and following the calendar. But I am pushing myself to stick with it!
Promote Myself: One of the amazing things about working for yourself is that you have the ability to promote yourself. My 2013 goal is to promote myself to a "Star Diamond" level. I will accomplish this goal only when I succeed at helping people - the more people I help the better chance I have at achieving this goal.
Get Out: I want to get myself out to more events. If there is a local business event that sounds like I could learn something, I am going to attend. If there is a social run, motivational speaker, fitness club, whatever - I am going to get myself out and attend more events in 2013!
Read: I will ready one motivational / business / personal growth book a month and post it on InsaneMarathon.com or social media (Facebook, twitter, instagram). This month I have already finished - Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy. 11 more to go!
