This may be my favorite GTD tracking mechanism!
That’s my friend Helene up there with her personal USMS Go the Distance (GTD) progress chart that she has up in her Classroom… how cool is that? Helene, like myself, participated in GTD all last year and we’re both big fans! Here’s a snippet of a note she sent me about it:
“Setting a goal, and watching it become a reality (I guess more than just sitting back and watching!) has been an awesome experience. GTD has been wonderfully inspiring.”
This is one of the things I like best about GTD is that you can set your own goals and get to them in your own way. Helene decided she wanted to swim 100 big miles in 2009, she tracked her distance with GTD, and hit her target late in December! High five Helene! My only question now is what’s the target for 2010?
As of this moment there are 945 participants across all of USMS in GTD… seeing as USMS is 50,000 members deep I think that number should be way bigger! You can read more about the program and get signed up here.
A few bonus pieces of GTD news have come to my attention since the last time I wrote about it. First off, it’s sponsored this year and there are prizes! Check it out:
Secondly, you can now get daily results! I am super geeked out on this! There’s been a few days that I’ve gone to the pool just to ensure I stay at the top of my age group in GTD. If we were still in once a month mode on the results side I wouldn’t have that push.
If you’re using GTD right now, go here to see where you stack up in the daily results!
