Goals

I have always been a fan of setting goals for the things I do. It’s a great motivation and will help you push a little further. I started setting goals for my running the day I became a runner. I started with small simple goals I could achive fast. Like running a certain distance a little faster than I’d done before, don’t take any walking breaks during runs, run x-times a week, etc. When I signed up for my first half marathon I didn’t have a goal time, my only goal was to finish. Which I did. The goal for my next half marathon was to beat the time from my first half marathon, which I also did (with more than 13 minutes, oh my!). My only competition is myself, and that’s the only person I need to beat.

My Running Goals
Times I want to beat, distances I want to reach. The list with goals related to running faster, running longer, mainly becoming a better runner.

» Run a marathon. (completed Nov 30th, 2014)
» Run a half marathon in less than 2 hours.
» Run 10 km in less than 55 minutes.
» Run 5 km in less than 26 minutes.

Running Bucket List
Places I want to go, things I want to see, races I want to run. The list of all running related dreams I want to achive before I die.

» Run a marathon. (completed November 30, 2014)
» Run the New York City Marathon.
» Run the Berlin Marathon.
» Run across the Golden Gate Bridge. (completed July 16, 2015)
» Run a race in 10 different countries (so far 4/10 – Norway, Italy, Germany, USA).
» Run in many different countries and cities (read below).

Run in many different countries & cities
I really want to run all over the world. Doesn’t matter if it’s a race or just a short training run. Running in other countries is exciting to me. I’ve always loved traveling, and combining that with my favorite hobby would be a dream come true. These are the places I can check off the list so far, hopefully I can add more names here soon.

Europe: Norway, France, Germany, Italy.
USA: New York, San Francisco.

  1. It looks like we both ran our first marathons on the same date! That’s really cool :o) Good luck on meeting your goals. It seems you’re well on your way!
