My 2009.1 Goals

That's not a typo. I just read over the last couple years of goal posts and realized something,I need to be working on my goals in smaller chunks because my life changes too quickly for yearlong goals.

As one guy said in the comments last year, I sorta suck at goal setting. So this year I have a new idea.

First, let's get to last year's goals:

Death of a Dream

On Imported Blog

I can't believe it just happened. I've finally done it. 2 Miles. Under 10 Minutes.

For the past few months, I've been waiting for the moment where I can make this my Facebook status. I've been working every day at this goal: sub 10. No one (before this post, at least) has known of this goal.

Last spring, I broke the 5-minute mile barrier. With the current training I've been doing, I've been looking at breaking the 10-minute two mile barrier this March.

Academically, I'm not the smartest person. I've always faced rejection from every single school I have ever applied to. I contacted a couple coaches at DIII universities that are academically world class. They said I would have a shot at making their cross country and track team if I could get my 3200m (2 mile) time around the ten minute boundary (plus or minus a few seconds).

My junior year track record was 10:41, eons away from 10 the flat. But, running was perhaps my only chance to finally achieve that dream of getting into a great college. I would have never thought a few years ago that I would use athletics to help gain me admission into a university. It became a possibility this year.
