The Half Way Point Status Check

At the beginning of the year, I wrote down a couple of goals that I wanted to achieve by years' end. I made the list mostly to keep myself accountable because I tend to be really scattered-brained when I don't have plans. Now that we are half way through the year, I thought it would be a good time to do a status check to see what I can cross off my list and what items I really need to crack down on. Okay, lets get started!

Fitness Goals:
1) Run more miles in 2011 than in 2010. I ran 1,084 miles in 2010. That is the number I need to beat. (I'm on track for this goal but I won't know the outcome until the end of the year. Still a work in progress.)
2) Run a sub-4 hour marathon. I am so close. I can do it! Thanks to my time at the Ojai Marathon, I can finally cross this off the list. I'm really happy and surprised that I accomplished this in the first half of the year. I didn't think that I would manage this, which is why I have no other marathon goals this year.
3) Sign up for 10K race. Beat PR of 50:10. Revisiting a distance I haven't raced in a long time. 
4) Climb a kiddie rock wall to the top. Remember in this post when I tried to climb but only got 3 feet off the ground and got scared. Yes I am afraid of heights.
4a) Climb a big indoor wall or ride a hot air balloon.
5) Run another trail race.  I can cross this one off my list thanks to the Billy Goat Half!

Personal Goals:
1) Plan 2012 European trip
2) Organize my living space. (this is still a work in progress. I've started on this and am happy with how it is coming along but I will need more time.)
3) Volunteer at least once this year.
4) Learn some French and/or Italian.

That's all I've done so far. The items in black I haven't even touched. I'm all about the low hanging fruit. :D
