2016 Running Goals

After taking a break from performance-orientated running goals in 2015, I must say that I feel physically and mentally refreshed and ready for some hard work and shoot-for-the-stars goals in 2016.  I will, God willing, be turning 39 in May 2016 and somehow I see this year as one last, give-it-your-all shot at achieving some long-standing PB dreams before I turn 40.     

2016 will, of course, not just be all work and no play, so (obviously) my beloved parkrun and dream of running the world features in there too, but I plan on working really hard to achieve some (lofty?) time-based goals this year.  

So, without any further ado, here are my five running goals for 2016:  
    

They look harmless enough (right?), but I can assure you that there's lots of hard work to be done - and I can't wait!  I'd love to read about your running goals for 2016 too - leave them in the comments and we'll cheer each other on!  

Ready?  Here we go!

    1. That's one of the things that I LOVE about running - it challenges everyone in completely different ways! Good luck with that marathon goal - I'll be cheering you on all the way!

  2. Last year I got into the NYC Marathon. Due to injury (3rd stress fracture for 2015) I had to cancel. I do however get my spot for this year ( you can cancel once and keep your spot for the next year). So my goal for 2016 is to stay injury free and get to the start and finish line of the New York Marathon

  4. I'm with you there Karien. PB's and course records are all in the past for me, nowadays I run simply for the joy of it....
    ....but you keep working at those goals, I'm sure you're capable of cracking them. Good luck.
