Last week, we had a few tips to help you stick to your New Year’s resolution. This week, as we count down the final hours of 2013, the WalkJogRun team shares their goals for 2014. Read on and let us know your resolutions in the comments below or on our Facebook page.

My goal is to qualify for the 2015 Boston Marathon in April, simultaneously beating my 3:18 marathon PR. I need under 3:15 since I turn 40 next year, but I’ve had my heart set on a sub-3:10. My first big race of 2014 is the Martha’s Vineyard 20 miler on February 15 (brrrr). After April, I’ll take a month to recover and then work focus on shorter races until late November when Marathon training will begin again.

I’m a father of 3 that coaches all 3 kids in baseball all summer and basketball all fall/winter – so I’m active but definitely not in the best shape I’ve been in. It’s gotten way too easy to tell myself “I don’t have the time to exercise”. Fitness and good health is important to me – my kids eat well, play sports, and attend youth “bootcamps” which make staying fit fun for them, but for some reason I’m always “too busy” for myself. So this year I’m resolving to *make* the time for myself to get healthy and exercise regularly.

My resolution is to keep running as much as I can until the end of my pregnancy and then have a healthy postpartum running comeback. I’d love to PR in a fall half or full, but that may be pushing it!

My new year’s running goal is to beat my half marathon PR: 1:49:09 that I’ve had for the past 8 years!

What I would like to accomplish this year is to run one of those intense obstacle course races. Like a muddy race, military style course or blizzard blast. I will get the confidence to do one this year!
