Wrapping up February Goals

Wrapping Up February Goals

Just like that, the second month of the year is –poof– gone! I am continuing to keep up with my goals and more importantly, checking in each month to see how I do. Let’s get to the action with wrapping up February goals right here! Just in case you’re curious here is a more detailed post sharing my Goals for 2017.

Wrapping up February Goals

Goals Check-In

Fitness and Running

Run – About as close to on-track as you can get for my 850 miles for the year! Thanks to SmashRun, it has a neat feature that tells me how far off my goal I am. It tells me how much I need to run the next day to get back on track and an average for the days afterward.

Run More Races –ย This month I ran 3 races (last Feb.=2) That puts me with a total of 5. Just wait until March!

We are digging deep here for the home stretch!

PR?? –ย No this was not a goal, but hey I will surely take it. Last weekend I PR’d in the 10k distance. Everything just fell into place, I do love when that happens.

Run a New State –ย Not yet, but I’m looking to pick up NC and KY soon. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Mini-Challenges – I have so failed on anything consistent with this! Really why is it so dang hard? I need to create a daily habit, same thing, same time to make it stick!


Post / Link up More – Again, totally fell off the wagon on this! Ugggh, my head is still above water only because I co-host the Weekly Wrap and have to get a weekly post up, but during the week has been more misses than hits.

#medalmonday goes to this super cool #RnRNOLA #remixchallenge guitar medal!!! I think it just may be one of the best I've gotten from @runrocknroll. What is the remix challenge? Run two races during the weekend and get a third medal ๐Ÿ… โšœ๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œโšœ๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œโšœ๏ธ . . #MoveMoreFitness #MoveMoreFitnessAmbassador #MMFitFam #MoveMore #DoMore #noexcuses @movemorefitness @happymoveyear #Misssippipiddlin #sweatpink #girlsgonesporty #nuun #nuunambassador #inspiringwomenrunners #runmississippi #mississippilife @mississippilife #mississippirunner #gomiss #instarunners #running #flexitpink #FitnessGoals #FitFunFashion #RnRNOLA #Runrockroll @runrocknroll #rnrav #louisiana @bondi_band #bondiband

Connect More – I could spend all day on Instagram, maybe why my writing has gone South?? Love all the connections I’ve made and just so much support! My #MedalMonday post was the most liked Instagram post of the month.


Good for the Soulย – We’ve enjoyed traveling, waking up in new places, had a date night with a couples massage and yes were still camping so I can say I’ve aced this!

Well some of us are Kayaking, others are napping…

Planning – I have done just average with this in general. We’re still using our Instant Pot quit a bit and I’m still using the hand-writtenย to-do list at work. I’m a little shocked it’s still going strong.

That is going to do it for this Wrapping up February Goals. I’ve assessed the damage and I’m moving forward in the month of March.

Speaking of March, it is going to be a very busy but a FUN month and I have no doubt it will go by just as fast as the last month! If I can stay healthy and injury free I will have accomplished great things! Here’s a hodgepodge of hashtags of what’s to come:

#NewOrleans #GirlsWeekend #Beach #THM17 #Relay #BrokeDownWithNoJack #BayStLouis #Montgomery #BestDamnRace #LuckoftheIrish #Tiredbuttoostupidtoquit

Do you use the Weekly Wrap link up to keep up with your goals? What is one thing you have totally rocked so far?

March is coming in like the Lion it is with storms expected to roll through the area this afternoon. Spring is my least favorite season as far as bad weather.

  1. Running is actually going well. It’s the one thing I can usually count on! But I really ought to go eat some lunch . . .

    You’re doing the things you love — doesn’t get any better than that.

  2. Ugh we are SO stormy here too! Now hold everything. LOOK at that monster Remix guitar! I must have one! You’re doing great with the important stuff and that’s what counts.

    • Marcia the Remix medal was so much better than the half marathon one in NOLA! They hardly ever disappoint but I was not fond of the cassette tape at all! Hummm wonder what the remix medal will look like in Vegas?? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. We totally need to do a meet in person at RnR Raleigh! I’m excited to run a new state, too!

  4. What a great month – running and having fun. What could be better? March, right?

    I’m looking forward to get out of town for a few days.. if only it would be warm and sunny. Doesn’t look like the weather gods like me.

    • Well I’m hoping the weather will change for you Darlene! Yes, looking forward to March, If I can get it past me I think I’ll be home free! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Love what you do and do what you love! You got it girl! Great month! and a great month ahead! See you in NOLA!

  6. See, the months just fly by when you are having fun!
    PS: I love IG too. I need to get in the habit of posting more often!

  7. You need to drive that RV north and add a Chicago race medal to your collection. Just sayin’.
