Spencer’s Running Goals

I created this site to help me accomplish some of my running goals. I don’t have any ambitious goals of becoming an Olympic champion or anything like that, but I do believe that if I can accomplish my goals I will see a significant impact on my health and overall quality of life. After all, that’s usually what goals are all about right?

When I began this site, I had 3 goals that I wanted to accomplish with running.

  1. Lose weight
  2. Set Personal Best times
  3. Place in my age group

Obviously with time, these goals may change.  Below you will find links to my current goals and results.
