2011 Recap

How did I do on my goals for 2011?

  1. Philadelphia marathon. Did it in 3:29:55. I’m a marathoner! Will do more. Breaking 5:00 in the mile remains a goal for this year.
  2. Brick Blueprint, an idea for a custom LEGO instruction store focused on remixing existing sets. Scrapped it.
  3. Build a bicycle. Did it. Over 1500 miles on the odometer now. No big tours, though – just one s24o camping trip.
  4. Career transition. Time to pop the clutch on latent plans to do something new: funding for the EvoS gig has fizzled. Abrupt, yes, but a narrow and labyrinthian path has suddenly opened onto a spacious plain of possibility.

Not too bad. I’m excited to see what the year ahead holds.
