Race to 40! Progress Update

I can’t believe it has been 9 days since I launched the “Race to 40!” challenge to accomplish the three goals I set myself before my 40th birthday on June 26th.

To recap, the three goals are to:
1. Post to my blog at least once per day; this is a minor goal, but required to bring my blog to life; this week I score my progress towards this goal a 9/10;
2. Compete in my first half marathon; I am targeting a fairly challenging time of less than 2 hours; I consider this a major goal; this week I score my progress towards this goal a 6.5/10; and
