Running Goals for 2021

I don't know if we'll be back to regular races in 2021, but I'm setting some process goals and performance goals for 2021. If no races, then I'll do comparable solo time trials. For each goal, I am setting an A (ideal) and B (good) standard. I think the combination of process and performance goals will give me a good blend of improvement and accountability. 

Here we go: 

Four process-focused goals 
1. Run at least 1700 miles. Preferably hit 2000 miles! 
2. Longest non-running streak of 3 days. Preferably only 2 days. 
3. Run at least one marathon. Preferably an ultramarathon. 
4. Break 65,000 ft of elevation gain. Preferably 75,000 ft. 

Four performance-focused goals 
1. Run a 5:50 mile (minimum 5:55) 
2. Run a 19:49 5K (minimum 19:59) 
3. Run a 1:34:59 half-marathon (minimum 1:35:59) 
4. Finish Howl at the Moon 8-hour with 40+ miles (minimum of 31 miles)

Looking forward to reviewing my 2021 goals on January 1, 2022.
