November Goals

Happy November everyone!  The temperature has suddenly dropped, the days are getting shorter, and I'm switching my summer clothes out for my warmer gear.  Winter is coming!

In honor of a new month and my renewed interest in blogging, I'm going to be sharing some goals for the month.  It's going to be very busy with a trip to Indianapolis for a race and our international trip of the year, so hopefully these will help me keep on track for November!

Finish two races

I'm signed up for two November races- my favorite Pittsburgh 10 Miler (which is tomorrow from the day I'm writing this, but already passed by the time I post it), and the Indy Monumental Marathon.  I don't really have any goals for the races other than finishing them- training got a bit derailed after my amazing 20 mile run during the Towpath Half Marathon.  I've been having some issues with my left leg, so instead of a time goal I just want to enjoy my races and get that finish medal.

Deep clean

In the last few months with training and travel, I've definitely been lazy about cleaning up the house, and it's time to fix that.  Since I'm going away at the end of the month, I want to leave the house in sparkling shape, so it's time for a cleaning party to get my house in tip-top condition.

Finish writing my Japan posts

It's almost been a year since I went to Japan, and I've only written about three cities so far!  I have six left to go, so I want to finish writing about all of them so I can get them posted before the end of the year.  I doubt I'll want to move much after my marathon, so this will be a great way to be productive while not leaving my couch!

Read two books

I keep getting into reading modes, but then I'll quickly get out of them when books aren't immediately available from the library, or I don't have time to finish them before I return.  So, it's time to get back into the swing of things and finish up two books.  I just got Bunny by Mona Awad on my Kindle, so that will be my first book of the month.

What are your goals for the month?


  1. Hey - good luck this weekend! I'll be at the Monumental too (also doing the full).

    1. Thanks Elizabeth!! Good luck to you too :)

    2. I can't believe it's November. I am looking forward to more posts from you this month.

  2. The cold weather is definitely helping me to stay inside and clean my house haha! I'm hoping to read 2 books as well. I'm very intrigued to hear your thoughts on Bunny. Good luck with all of your goals!

    1. It was...ODD. To put it lightly. Lol! Not at all what I was expecting!
