>Running 101>Running Resolutions
Goal: still be running 10 years from now..
1) run within my limits
2) use HR to stay in my lower aerobic range
3) listen to the cues my body is giving me
4) resume regular back/core exercises
5) This is what it's all about, no one can slow us down, we ain't gonna stop until the clock runs out
OK, maybe I need to work on that last one

My goal is pretty much the same as yours, but more specifically:
1) Get back up to 25mpw.
2) Do so without bugging my patello femoral syndrome.
3) Do so without causing any more injuries.

"Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'" - Peter Maher
"Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run." -Monte Davis
1) make it through the winter without injury
2) make a habit out of doing upper body workouts
3) log 1200 road miles in 2012

I'm on the right
1) Actively run all year long.
2) Not get winded after 2 miles
3) Run 1000 miles
4) Thrive, not merely survive. (Okay, so this applies to the rest of life).
I'm Eric, the guy who runs to keep his sanity.
1) Take 20 minutes off my marathon time by the spring.
2) BQ in the fall/winter.
3) Run my first 50 miler in September.
4) Complete my first full year of running ever.
5) Race a lot, enjoy it all.
"When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem." Emil Zatopek
2013 goals: Kick some arse. Moreso than 2012.

Run less. Get faster.
Eat more. Get leaner.
My goal makes sense in the proper context, ie periodization.
As does mine. Changing your diet to mostly whole foods and lean protein will likely be an increase in the total volume of food you eat, while reducing your caloric intake.
1. run often
2. be fitter
3. be content
4. continue to learn

I always find streaking interesting - It is the best of goals and worst of goals. There are times streakers run that are counter-productive. But most the time it forces you to be consistent.
