I've set myself the goal of getting into the 50 club by the end of the year (currently on 45). It's an interesting goal as you achieve it gradually, week by week. Previous goals (completing a marathon, beating a particular time) have been months of training then one event where it's make or break.
Also trying to get on the tourism page. I've done 15 different events so far, helped by there being so many of them in Hampshire.
