It’s funny that Evan has taken the time to throw down the gauntlet. I have actually had my post ready for almost a week now, but wanted to finish as many goals as I could before the New Year started. Last night around 11:00 I finished my 12th book for the year. Unfortunately, because I have been running around this past week I did have to read some- childish? - books.
2015 was a great year for me. I started the year out with 2 big experiments in mind. The first was a list of goals that I wanted to accomplish in the year of 2015. Due to timing and weather I found myself, in the middle of September, coming to the realization that I would be unable to complete 100% of my goals. The temperatures and water levels were dropping around me and I hadn’t run the French Broad for the year. I decided to rededicate myself to these goals in the search for completing 75% of my intended goals.
Even after hitting the new mark I stumbled from time to time, but managed to end the year out with a full 75% of my goals accomplished, as well as one goal I hadn’t measured since March.
Here are my 2015 Goals:
25+ / 20 Laps – USNWC Wilderness Channel
