Geek Bear’s Goals for 2016

Hail and Well Met!

I thought I would take a little time to talk about my goals for the year.

I know, I know, I should have done this in January around the time of New Year’s Resolutions. I am not a fan of resolutions. These are things that governments and committees do to make a statement and yet do absolutely nothing.

I don’t want to do nothing.

I have already stated that one of my goals is to ensure that I have a post a week up here. I have three other goals that I would like to accomplish.

First, I want to run a half marathon. I enjoy running but I would never say that I am good at it. I would like to be able to say that I have accomplished this next level ofa run since I have done a 5K and a 10K. I am looking at the Flying Pig half marathon here in Cincinnati.

Second, I want to do a Tough Mudder. I have never done anything like this and it seems like it is more a test of sheer stubbornness to get through all the pain to get to the finish line. I don’t know if I can do it but you never know until you try.

Finally, I want to go to a Bear Run. I am a very shy person. I tend to gravitate to the edges of crowds and gatherings. A Bear Run is something that seems exciting and fun but very outside of anything that I have ever done. I am sure I can go and be the guy hang at the back but this is not the purpose. I want to go to one, have a good time, and be in the thick of things (pun intended). I have no clue which one I will go to as I have no idea which one would be the best.

So, there are my goals for the year. If you have any advice or direction, please feel free to leave a comment.
