Top 10s

Color us crazy, but we think setting goals is one of the best parts of ringing in the new year! Everything feels so fresh, new, and full of possibility. There are a few little tricks we know to help achieve goals. Here are three big ones... Make them measurable, realistic, and tell others about them. That last part is where you all come in. Studies have shown that if you tell others about your goal, your chances are of success are higher. Let's call it a little bit of good peer pressure. Feel free to join in the fun by commenting here or on Facebook/ Twitter/ Instagram with your goals, too!


Top Ten (or twelve...) 2017 Goals!


Karen, Webmaster, -

  • Get better at cleaning my house (or learn how to use my nose like Samantha on Bewitched).
  • Listen to my first podcast.
  • Visit my sister in Hong Kong


Stephanie, Operations -  

  • Learn to balance- my body, my responsibilities, my checkbook...
  • Smile more.
  • Do a bit of service every day.


 Debra, Blogger, Writer, Enewletter -

  • Increase my running distance (going to try to do the SemperFive in May. Eek!).
  • I would also like to try to go with the flow more when it comes to my son getting older and more independent.


Brenda, Social Media Manager - 

  • Learn how to do a handstand.
  • Take the kids to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens (We’ve never been!)
  • Run the Turkey Trot at Thanksgiving
  • Try SUP (stand up paddle boarding) for the first time.

Any tips for increasing running milage, headstands, or stand up paddle boarding? How about podcast reccomendations, or ideas for random acts of kindness/service? Let us know in the comments or on social media!

Happy New Year!

Trains, Planes and Automobiles Kids' Race Series


From a small beginning, Cathy Weise of the Ron Rosner YMCA has developed an ambitious three-race series for kids for this summer, with the help of The Great Train Race, Shannon Airport, Dominion Raceway & Entertainment, the Fredericksburg Area Service League and Race Timing Unlimited.

Great Train Race Director Jennifer Taylor was one of the first on board.
