So I'm home now and I feel like I need a new goal. Maybe physical (run a marathon?!) maybe intellectual (get started on my doctorate?) maybe just professional (uh, get a job?).
How do you pick your goals? I guess I could start with what I know I DON'T want it to be. I'm done with long-distance cycling. Been there, done that. I don't particulary enjoy centuries and though I'm proud of RAGBRAI, I don't feel any need to up the mileage.
Some may say to start racing- I'm pretty competitive and I do love a good race- I especially like if I win, even in friendly settings. But I think racing would take me down an expensive road- new wheels, better gear, etc. I don't think I can support that.
I also know I don't want to choose a small, interim goal. I think big and I know I'm capable to do big things. So, what could it be? I know my next immediate goal is to finish up my 3000 mile year- it'll be nice to have that out of the way.
What are your goals?
