It’s easy to be inspired on this lush island. We are fortunate to be on the island of Kauai for the second week of Christmas break before the kids head back to school. Our vacay happened over New Years and I have naturally been thinking about 2020. I don’t usually make resolutions, but since I am turning 50 this year I decided to lay out a few goals for myself while I still can. Barring an accident, illness, old knees, or any other unforeseen potential show stopper, I am considering a goal to run 2020 miles in 2020.
Apparently running 2020 miles in 2020 is an unoriginal idea. A quick Google search yielded 606,000,000 results in .42 seconds. Who would have thought that many people would be interested in running the equivalent of 77 marathons in a year? There are pages that offer tracking, apps, competitions and suggestions to switch to kilometers (2020 kilometers=1255 miles). Since I live in Oregon, I think that kilometers might be cheating.
Anyway, so far so good. I have logged 10 miles in 2020. Only 2010 to go. However, by my calculations and Google’s advice I am already behind. I think that I will change this goal to 2020 miles combined bike and run. Seems more doable. I’ll keep you posted.
- Goals are malleable (at least until you say them out loud).
- Nobody to impress but myself. Gotta be real.
