Looking forward to 2007



In 2007, I wish to focus on growth. Both personal and professional.

Professional


I have just cleared the certifications that bring me one step closer to where I want to be professionally. For anyone wondering, they are FileNet Enterprise Content Management and Business Process Management Java APIs (Mouthful). I want to be a Content Specialist when I grow up :) I am learning Filenet, and have experience with Documentum (FileNet's Competition, and a leading Enterprise Content Mgmt solution). A resume with both of these is really hard to find. Now, I need to get on a project with FileNet here, and I'm all set.

Personal


The fun part. I want to be a runner. I want to finish a 5K. I run at lunchtime sometimes, but I need to be more consistant. Currently, I can run 2 miles (3.2K) in 25 minutes, With a total of 5 minutes walking before, in-between, and cool-down. So, I'm joining the 100 miles by April 1st. Found it on ThermalGal's Blog The challenge is to walk or run 100 Miles. I would like most of it to be running.

I want to finish the scrapbook albums I've started - Mehul's First Year, and Mehul's First Birthday. After that, I want to start Mehul's Second Year, Travel Book, and Recipe Booklet. I don't have any heritage photos with me here so I'm not adding that to the list. I will get them on my next trip to India.

I also want to finish a few items from my 10 Stitching Project Challenge list.

Ofcourse, in addition to these, I'll keep knocking items off my 101 Things In 1001 Days list.

I'm glad I could help inspire you to run 100 miles. If you need some help staying motivated, we can sign up to run a 5k together. Or if you really want to get motivated, you can join me in training for the Half Marathon in MD in May!

Good for you!

I started to run in the spring of 2006, and used Cool Running's Couch Potato to 5K Program.

You're probably past the beginning stages, but it's still a useful program.

Good luck
