February Progress on My 2010 Goals

At the end of 2009, I identified ten goals for myself for the upcoming year. I decided to do a little progress report at the end of each month to see how I am doing on each of these. So here is where things stand after two months into the New Year!

1. Do my fifth Team in Training event. I signed up for the Summer Team to run the Seattle half marathon. Training has been going on for three weeks.

2. Get a bike. Initially, this means saving money for a bike. This takes money I don't have right now, and I have not made any progress on this goal.

3. Eclipse $50,000 (cumulative) in fund raising for Team in Training. I need to raise $8,500 this season to hit this target. I've raised 28% of this amount so far, which is a really good start.

4. Lose my extra 10 pounds. It is slow going, but I have lost about two pounds of it so far.

5. Practice swimming. I’ve made no progress on this goal.

6. Write something, get it published, and get paid for it. I’ve made no progress on this goal.

7. Run the Ukrops Monument Avenue 10K this March. I am signed up and training.

8. Hike more, and try to backpack again. I’ve managed a couple of short hikes. This is a longer term goal for spring, summer, and fall anyhow.

9. Do something about my work situation. No progress on this at all.

10. Continue this blog, as well as my blog “Oh, to be Hiking,” through 2010. I’ve written 52 posts on this blog this year, and five posts on my hiking blog in 2010. So I am doing well on this goal.

Summary – mixed. After two months, I have made good progress on four of my goals, some progress on two others, and no progress on the other four.
