48 by 48


48 pounds lost before I turn 48.

Hike the Grand Canyon before I turn 48.

Run either the Twin Cities Marathon or the Chicago Marathon before my 48th.

48 Books read

Run in the 48th state.


So this is the plan for the next year. As all good goals I do reserve the right to change all or part of it as I find I cannot achieve the goal.


It started on November 7th and so far I've achieved:


I ran in the 48th state - Arizona.

I've finished book #1 -Bowerman and The Men of Oregon.

I'm down 1 pound.

Excellent start on some really cool goals! Keep up the good work!

48 books eh? I think I read 3 last year. Maybe 48 blogs is more reasonable. ;)

Yay Pat! Those are great goals, and you've made a great start! I think I need a few lessons in goal setting myself.

Love that picture and caption. :-)

I am pushing for Chicago Marathon for you. It would be great to cheer you on.

Great goals!

I love the idea of 48/48. I hope you don't mind if I borrow the concept, only my number will be a little higher...

Have a wonderful weekend.

Way to set some goals in writing but my fav is this....As all good goals I do reserve the right to change all or part of it as I find I cannot achieve the goal.

I like the book idea. Let us know which ones you read. I'm sure there will be some good suggestions for the rest of us to have a look at.

Ok, the 48th state was kind of cheating - you do live in it afterall.

Are you talking 48 pounds from where you are now? You'll be nothing but skin and bones.
