Monthly Check-In: Goodbye April, Hello May: Each month, I share three things I accomplished in the previous month and preview three things I’m excited about for the upcoming month. Here’s my latest monthly check-in.

Goals

  • After (hopefully) rocking the Broad Street Run, I’d like to take this week to rest and relax and give my body a break for a few days. Then, eventually, I want to get back into both Zumba and strength training, along with speedwork to beat my goal of a sub-30 minute 5K by the end of 2013! 
  • Make some decisions this week about a few great freelance opportunities that have come my way- I know my time is limited, so I want to make decisions that are going to help propel my business goals forward.
