Many bloggers have already posted their goals and planned races for 2012. I applaud them. I cant think of what I'm doing next week never mind 6 months from now..... The only goal I have for 2012 is to finish my first marathon. I have yet to sign up for it, but I think I'm ready for it. It is definitely  my next step ( I think ) as a runner. Finishing a marathon would put a stamp of approval in my mind, labeling me as a true runner.

There are races I want to do this upcoming year, but for me, the cost will play a big factor. I have 2 kids graduating high school this year and between planning a graduation party and getting them financially ready for college, you can imagine how tight money will be.

So.... I'f my only major race this year is a marathon and I complete it.... I will be happy with that. Any other race I do will be a plus!
In other news.....
I'm loving the Garmin I got for Christmas! Thanks for all the comments and tips. I'm still trying to figure it out, but I think I'm getting it. My biggest problem right now is remembering to bring it with to work with me when I run during my lunch time. I forgot it twice! Grr! I did run with it to today: 5.36 miles in 40mins. I set it up with Dailymile so I can put it on the widget on my blog and so I can tweet it. Thank you for those who follow me on twitter. I'm not a big poster on Twitter, but I do my best.
I see I have a couple new followers! Welcome!... and thank you for following my little blog!

I don't know if I will post again before the years end, but if I don't, I wish you all a Happy New Year and hope you all have a great year of runs ahead of you!!!

- Jose

Man, you've got a big year ahead. That first year out of high school is such a challenging one. My youngest left high school last year and his first year of university has been a voyage of discovery - work, study, getting a car licence, more independence, more responsibility. It's a steep learning curve.

Good luck with it all.

You do have a big year ahead with 2 graduating! I'll be interested to see which marathon you pick!

Happy New Year!
