The Hunt for the Red October Review's where I'm at.

Networth = Positive!
Marathon = Delayed
Travel more = Working on it, trip to Savannah this month
Write more = participating in the NanoWrimo challenge this month to write a novel by the end of November.  I'm currently way the hell behind in my word count, but I figure anything is better than nothing. We're talking about my first fiction story in a decade, so this is definitely something fresh.

Quit smoking = 80 days and counting.

Really, the only thing I'm disappointed in is that I won't end up having run a marathon by the end of the year. I think I can pin that on two things: 1) Not quitting smoking early enough in the year, which would have enabled me to 2) run more.

However, I'm starting to think of some of the goals I'd like for next year. Luckily, running will be one of them because....

#1 - Cut down to 175 pounds. This isn't too lofty of a goal, somewhere between a 20-25 pound loss by the end of next year (I'm 6 feet tall, so this isn't going to be freakishly skinny). I think after quitting smoking, running a half marathon, and just being more aware, I should be able to accomplish this goal. I know that you're not supposed to tie success to numbers, but it's not like I'm shooting for under 170 where success may be harder to define.

More to come as I think of it!
