Setting Goals in Running

Posted by Filed Under: Inspiration & Motivation, Video

It’s a big run weekend with lots of runs posted to the CRN Race calendar.

Everyone goes into a race with some sort of goal in mind—everything from “qualify for the Boston Marathon” to “finish” to “have fun.” Sometimes we reach our goals and sometimes we don’t and sometimes we accomplish something that wasn’t a goal but that is good.

This video is a short interview with Mark Curb who sought to be an Olympic Marathoner but who ended up holding a World Record in the Half Marathon. It is about dreams, goals and reality.

About 21stCenturyMom

I found myself at the age of 38 the single full time working mother of 3 small children. I took up running because I figured I could get the biggest benefit in the least amount of time. Swearing never to run a marathon I found myself going out for a 4 - 6 mile run several times a week. I ran my first marathon 6 years later. Five years after that I ran another and then the next year another. Then I got bit by the triathlon bug so now I split my time between running, swimming and cycling. This year I think I'll run another marathon. And next year - who knows?

    Thanks for posting this. I had to watch it a few times. It was short but he spoke volumes.
