Miles for Financial Literacy

Brooke Salvini |


Goal setting can come easily for some people, and that is great, but as long as it doesn't end there.  Setting the goal and thinking or dreaming about the end product and achieving the goal itself are not the hard parts of the project. It is middle part of "getting there" or the "doing" that can prove to be challenging. Depending on the goal, this process can be months or years away-that takes patience, consistancy, and most of the time: Hard Work. 

The sport of running is really all about the building blocks and for me is always Hard Work.  I had never really enjoyed running just for the act of it, I have had to really work at learning to enjoy it.  Even then, with too much time off, I must build back up, go through the grueling hard runs again, before the enjoyment of the finish starts to creep back to me. 

So along with hard work, consistancy and patience, if there are other motivators that can be in place to help with goal setting and its' achievement, it's always better.   One thing that has motivated my running is to sign up for distance events in the future.  I know that within a few months, I must continue to increase my mileage and pace, or else the event will be far too grueling to enjoy. 

At Salvini Financial Planning we are hoping to combine the sport of running, the concept of goal setting and achievement along with the motivation to give back to our community with our training miles.  For every mile we train for an upcoming Half-Marathon in November, we will donate to Financial Literacry at AICPA &

If you find this concept intersting and would want to train along with us, or want to donate, or just want to learn more about Goals or Financial Literacy in general, please see our website, or contact us.
