Goal Setting

The best goals in life -- the ones you can achieve -- are those you can accomplish again and again. As is the case with most people who have already done the Bolder Boulder, I hope to PR on Monday. 

The best goals allow you to build a pattern of achievement. 

Setting a goal and achieving it can be very satisfying. Of course, the opposite is also true. Goal setting is one of the most profound things that running teaches you. It makes you consider your goals not only in racing but in life. You don't have to do a lot, but you do have to do it consistently. 

Examine your goals. Are they too lofty? Or just right? Remember: it's the process of working toward your goals that's the most satisfying.

Have a lovely weekend!
