March Madness

My Bedfont Lakes parkrun this morning completes my original goal for February, which was to do a parkrun every Saturday, keeping the chance of a 50 t-shirt by next Janathon alive.

Looking ahead to March, I have a couple of goals in mind, one running related and one not. 

The running one is simple and achievable: run a parkrun every Saturday in March.  It will probably get a little more complicated and include references to personal bests and sub 30 minute times, but they’re just frills.

The other one started as a fleeting thought, madder in its own way than Janathon.  I’m not at all convinced that it’s doable, and I’m still trying to talk myself out of it.  To succeed at it, I’ll have to change the habits of a lifetime, and manage something that I’ve tried and failed at more times than I care to mention.  Watch this space.

    Now that’s intriguing . . .

    Well done on all the park runs, I’d never heard of park runs until I started reading Janathon blogs. 50 seems like a do-able, yet still hard, goal.

    The lengths people go to for a t shirt!. the suspense is killing me re part 2 so dont leave it too long before spilling the beans

  3. Oooh, that does sound interesting! My secondary January resolution was to untie my laces before taking off my trainers… I suspect your’s will be far more worthwhile. Good luck!

  4. …going for a run before breakfast everyday? Oh, no… You said it wasn’t running related… Mmm… Don’t know then. We eagerly await the official announcement.

    well done! feels so good to achieve a goal, 🙂 and best of luck with the other two goals you have set yourself! I think one of mine should be not to ‘have to’ finish the pack of M&M’s once I have opened it lol!
