2012 Looking Forward

One of the things that always interests me is how often the new year is used as a point of introspection both in terms of what happened last year and things that are goals for next year.  I think it has to do with how the changing of the year makes us think about our morality.  I guess I’m going to be no different…

Looking back I’m happy about the things that happened to me:

  • Got out of Credit Card dept!
  • Visited NYC!
  • Moved in with Stephanie!
  • Got engaged to Stephanie!
  • Ran Several 5k and 10k races including the warrior dash (I wish I had a complete count :-()

Overall it was a great year and (as I normally do) I want to document my goals for the following year:

  • Get married to Stephanie without having a nervous breakdown from all the stress
  • Lose 30 lbs before my wedding (2012-10-20)
  • Run a half marathon
  • Have at least $1500 saved for retirement
  • Finally come up with a single topic blog and post to it regularly
  • Develop my own WordPress theme for my blogs
  • Get a side business website up and running by my birthday
  • 10 more 5k/10k/half-marathons

This year I’ll do my best to keep track of my progress here:
