Goals List

Main 2018 Goals:

  • Complete my first 100 mile Ultramarathon! (Run Rabbit Run 100 in September). Sub-goals:
    • Run 2500 miles in 2018.
    • Complete build-up races (Cedro Peak 50k, Jemez 50k, Grand Mesa 50M).
  • Hit 800 club in big three lifts while maintaining sub 150 body weight. Currently at 590; Squat 195, Deadlift 260, Bench Press 135.
  • Read 104 books (52 fiction and 52 non-fiction).

Main 2017 Goals:

  • PR Road Marathon time. Completed at Duke City Marathon!
  • Read 104 books (52 fiction and 52 non-fiction). Completed.
  • Raise all trained lifts to intermediate level for my weight class. Deadlift, overhead press and pull-ups already are there, just need to raise my back squat, bench press and row. Once completed I will probably try for the 1000 club. Partially completed. Cut weight on some lifts to work on form/technique.
  • Have Duolingo Spanish course completed.
  • Continue to do yoga nearly every day. (Not really a S.M.A.R.T. goal, but I’d prefer to not try and quantify this since I’m already consistent with my practice).
  • Commute to work by bike all year, at least enough to remove the need for a second car. Sold our second car.

Long-Term Goals:

  • Gain entry to and complete Western States 100 and Hard Rock 100.

Completed Goals:

  • Debt-free! (Other than mortgage).
  • Learn all power-lifting lifts and raise my totals to the novice level.
