Keep an eye on how you're doing. If the gray goal line gets too steep or too flat, adjust your goal or your pace.

Connect with friends

Visit your friends' pages. Opt in to see their updates on your home page, and encourage them when they make progress. Your friends can return the favor, unless you make your goals private.
