I only set two goals for the first quarter of 2023/ Those goals were to run the LA Marathon and to save $3,000 in my savings account. I am happy to report that I accomplished both of those goals. For the 2nd quarter, I will set even more goals.
I didn’t train much for the LA Marathon besides the two half marathons I ran in January and February. My time was 6 hours and 35 minutes, a 30 minute improvement from 2022. I know I can do better next year, as long as I train. My goal for 2024 will be to run un under 5 hours and 45 minutes.
I was able to save the money in my savings account from bonuses and saving extra income. I have also started to be more intentional with my spending and have started saving more from each paycheck. This has ehlped a lot. I am hoping to have $5,000 saved by the end of 2023.
