Goals and new adventures for 2014

Yesterday, you read about what I did and didn't do in 2013.  Now, let's check out my hopes and plans for the year ahead.

2014 GOALS

1.  Complete eight races.
I'm all about challenging my body this year.  I'm not saying I'll be fast at any of them, but I just want to finish.
 
2Read 45 books.
I thought about shooting for 50 or 52, but I decided to ease my way up to that number. I still have writing to do, after all.
 
3.  Pay off all of my credit and store cards.
It's the most annoying debt ever.  I want to be rid of it all.

4.  Send out four handwritten notes or surprises each month.
Mail totally brightens my day (as long as it's not a bill). I want to do this for someone else.  Want to be a recipient of this goal? Give me your address here.
 

2014 NEW THINGS

1. Take a spin class.
I've been wanting to try this for a while.  I'm a little scared. Time to face the fear.

2. Complete a 10K and a half-marathon.
This kind of goes along with my first goal above.  But they're new to me, so I'm putting them here too.

3. Join two organizations or committees.
I want to meet new people and get more involved in my community.

  1. I think these are really, really great and attainable goals, Micah!! I know you're going to have a successful year. I'm with you on paying off credit card/store card debt. It's my priority to get rid of all that this year, too. I'm challenged by your goal to run 8 races but I know you'll succeed! If we were in the same place I'd love to take a spin class with you! I've been once before but it's been so long that it's practically a new thing for me to try, too. Happy, happy New Year my friend!

  2. I love these!! I need to read more books - and watch less TV. Thanks for the reminder! :) I agree, credit card debt IS the most annoying debt - ever! :)

    Happy New Year!!!

  3. I barely managed 40 books in 2013 - I had to read a really skinny Scholastic book club book on New Year's Eve to get my goal accomplished! - so I'm not sure whether to up the ante or not this year.

    I'm thinking about signing up for a Zumba class this year to keep pushing myself, fitness-wise.

  4. I just sent you my address. I LOVE MAIL! I send more than receive and it gives me so much joy. I will send you so much - and I can already think of two things at home that would be great for you. Send away!

  6. Spin isn't hard! I swear you'll be great at it. Although, it does hurt the bottom the first few times.

    I loved reading your goals. I always like reading others' but rarely publish my own :)
