Welcome, 2012: Resolutions and a New Year’s Run

I love the beginning of a new year. It seems like a fresh start and a time to reflect. I also love new year’s resolutions. I think resolutions are a great idea in general. Being a very competitive goal oriented person, I enjoy the opportunity to pick goals and challenges for a new year. After much consideration, I have decided upon the following goals, in the order of the likelihood of accomplishment:

1. Keep running for fun and remember to enjoy it (definitely will happen)

2. Run faster (probably going to happen thanks to my friend/coach’s insistence on speed work AND track work every week)

3. Strength train once a week (not likely, but I am going to give it the old college try)

4. Make better/healthier decisions about the food that I choose to eat (a long shot)

5. Break 2 hours in a half marathon (a pipe dream)

I’m sure I will add on to this list – I always do – I like resolutions so much that I make them all year round. Now that I have committed to them in writing I feel a bit of added pressure. I usually perform well under pressure, so maybe this will increase the likelihood of getting that sub 2-hour half marathon. Dare to dream…
Anyhow, I welcomed 2012 with a New Year’s champagne run. We were well stocked with champagne – only the finest that the grocery store had to offer for our exclusive running group.
