2013 Recap, and Goals for 2014

Lots of people were saying how 2013 sucked, how 2014 is going to be so much better, blahblahblah. I personally hated 2012 and was happy to start anew in 2013 - living in a new place, making new friends, and really identifying myself as a runner. 2013 was good to me. Now that we're in 2014, I decided some reflection was in order:

Goals from 2012:
  1. Book more than half of the auditions gone to in 2013.  In 2012, I went to 13 auditions and booked 6. In 2013, I went to 14 auditions and booked 5. You win some, you lose some. 
  2. Get cast in a musical in Seattle. CHECK.
  3. Run more than 506.69 miles (total in 2012) - CHECK. 
  4. Run a marathon. CHECK.
  5. Go to more dance classes. Nope. Specifically, go to more tap classes. Double Nope.
  6. Go to more yoga classes. CHECK.

2013 Running:

General Goals for 2014:
  1. Go to more dance classes. Specifically, tap classes - and try to go weekly, or at least once a month.
  2. Get a yoga membership and go frequently.
  3. Eat generally cleaner.
  4. Be kind to everybody, no matter how they treat you. But also be a real person... feel those feelings. 
  5. Do something nice for that big 10 year anniversary on December 26th. 
  6. Get financial stuff nailed down for a possible house purchase at some point this year.
Wedding Goals for 2014:
  1. Have a fantastic wedding day and try not to stress out about it too much. It's just a day.
  2. Go on the honeymoon and have a BLAST. Feel carefree!
  3. Make the first 7 months of marriage glorious, and as stress free as possible.
Running Goals for 2014:
  1. Run more than 900 miles next year. Goal: 950!
  2. Run another marathon... after the wedding, of course.
  3. Run more than 6 races this year. 
Do you like to make resolutions? Why or why not?
