It's tough to announce these goals for fear that I won't reach them, but I know that with your badgering I'll be more motivated to achieve them. With that in mind here are two goals that have been dreams for too long:
- Ski the Iditarod Trail Invitational in 2015. This is something I've thought about for a while and now realize is within my grasp. It won't be easy and I'll have to overcome some bad races in the past year to get there, but I am confident I have the ability to do so. Of course it isn't all in my power. The race is an "invitational" after all. I'm not guaranteed a spot, but I think I can convince the race directors.
- Finish college. I will be going back to school this fall, part time for now at DMACC and then back to a four year institution. I had been waiting for a sign from God that I was supposed to go back to school, but realized that wasn't going to happen. It is time to shift the onus off God and onto myself. It's going to be a lot of hard work and a big time commitment.
