2009 Goal Event Anyone??

I'm a rather goal oriented person. If I don't have something to train for, I tend to get lazy. I just finished my latest goal event, so I'm looking for one for next year.

Anyone else searching for a goal event? And what are the current front runners for you?

Steve

I set a mileage goal this year, and rode barely 15% of it. I even rode less this year than last year, when I didn't have a goal (until the last week of the year).

So nah, I'm not setting a goal for next year.

Aside from the March ride, I'm also shooting for the Austin Livestrong Challenge in October. I would like to find one more somewhere between March and October, just not sure where. If Indy Motor Speedway is doing their ride, I might do that one if I can swing enough time.

I will probably try and get one good area group ride/rally in before march but haven't checked the Texas Rides calendar and given a ton of thought yet.

Good stuff guys! Anyone else? It doesn't have to be cycling only.

I'd like to actually get to the Tour of Italy this year, I promise myself every year and every
year something comes up (like teaching).
I'm in for the Tour Dallas, just because its a fun little ride.
and yes, unless I'm in Milan again I'm going back to HHH.
