New year. New stuff!

New(ish) blog.

This year I’m making it a priority to get this blog up and running. I’ve also been thinking of ways to¬†make it more relevant to a wider audience. That’s why I’m shifting gears and will also be sharing more lifestyle posts outside the scope of running. I live in a great city and want to share all of my new discoveries in addition to my daily likes and dislikes.

New goals.

My goals for the year include being healthier, achieving more consistency with my running and posting here at least once a week. I’m also working on improving my coding abilities. If you’re interested in coding and haven’t heard about code year, you can check it out here. Hopefully with my sweet new coding skills I’ll be able to customize the look & feel of this blog without having to pay someone to do it for me!

New races.

Lastly, I’ve already accumulated a few new races and new distances for this year. The first is the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in April. The longest distance I’ve run is 7 miles so I’ll definitely need to get my butt in gear to finish strong. Less than a month later I’ll be toeing the starting line for the Nike Women’s half marathon in DC. I’m super excited for this race because first of all, it’ll only be women racing. Talk about girl power! Secondly we’ll be racing through the streets of ¬†downtown DC. I’m definitely banking on this to totally distracted me from the number of miles I will have run. (More to come on my training plan).

So that’s it! I know it won’t be easy but I’m determined to see everything through!

What are your goals for the new year? Any tips for keeping the blog momentum up?
