A business which takes no regular inventory usually goes broke.

July~mid year, time to review the "non recap" recap blog post from the beginning of the year.



Let's see...there was a nifty daredevil snail pic...CHECK!



Tybee Half Marathon 2/6/10 This will be my first race at this distance~Instant PR!I will be shooting for a sub 2 hour performance. Also, I will get to meet CJ...should be fun

I ran 1:54:38...CHECK

Met CJ (Also, victorious at the Duel in the Dunes)...CHECK (Double CHECK!)

I plan on using that marathon as my final training run for the Sweetwater, wait for it,....50K U L T R A on April 3rd.

completed said ultra and ran a second 50k. CHECK!

By this time, I will know if I got a lottery slot into the NYC Marathon. Otherwise I will add another Autumn marathon to my schedule.

Did not get into NYC Marathon. FAIL!
Registered for 2 Autumn marathons & a 50 miler. CHECK!?!?!

Looking at the shorter distances, I plan on running the Savannah Mile, with a goal of 6:45 or less. I ran it in '09 with a mile time of 7:19.

Ran the Savannah Mile in 6:41. CHECK

(It is going to get a little grey...)

My number one goal for 2010 is to stay healthy and continue to improve my overall fitness. I lost 25 pounds during 2009 and would like to lose another 20 in the next year. As I continue to lose weight, my times will continue to drop. I would like to break 4 hours in the full, 49 minutes in the 10k and dare I say it, 22:59 5k...

Stay healthy...
hmmm, I may be nursing a sports hernia...waiting to hear back from the doctor...currently icing after my runs. Pain is 1/2 of 1 on Steve Q's tough as a n*ts@ck scale of toughness...

Lose 20 pounds...
I have lost 10...

Break 4 hours in the Marathon...
Kiawah Island Marathon, 12/11/10; we will see.

49 minute 10K/22:59 5K
I lowered my current 5K to 24:01 in March. I am currently on pace to hitting both of these goals in the fall/winter race season.

So, no CHECK or FAIL at this time.

In 2010 I will give back and work towards being less selfish. I would like to volunteer at a couple of races and move forward with my goal of organizing a race to benifit the local Autism Foundation. I am going to try to help my fellow man whenever my HP allows me.

DOH! I have not moved forward on any of this...I need to get working here. BIG FAIL!

Okay, so all in all, 2010 is shaping up to be a pretty good year. I see the sucess and see where improvement is needed.

An interesting side note, starting Tuesday, I will be in the big A for three weeks for work; three weeks of the big H's people! Holly, Hills and Hotels!!!

Is this the big A of GA? May I suggest Fox Bros BBQ? You will easily gain the 10lbs back!

Congrats on all your achievements.

Hail to the Snail! Way to get them done. And from my perspective, I say 100% CHECK on helping your fellow man and giving back. Holly should be super proud of you:)

Morgan said...

You're getting there... slowly but surely! Def not snail pace, maybe more like turtle pace? And you know he won the race!
