Happy New Year!!


happy-new-yearI hope everyone had a fun and safe New Years Eve!  I know I have readers that were celebrating wile I was still at work, since New Zealand moved in to the new year quite a bit before the East Coast of  New Years, followed by my readers through out the Mid-East and Europe.  Where ever you were, I hope it was merry and that 2015 holds bigger and brighter things for you than 2013 did!

We had a small gathering at home, with friends for the kids and ourselves present!  Good friends is always a nice way to welcome in the new year!  On the blog, we have a new look (with a new header to come!) and a new out-look!

calvin-and-hobbesI don’t believe in Resolutions for myself for the very same reason as Calvin doesn’t, for the same reason I don’t believe in diets.  Both sound like temporary things, where my goals are supposed to be lifestyle changes that are on-going.    So what lifestyle changes do I have in store for 2014?

1) Strength Training.  Running last year was a blast, but it wasn’t enough. I picked up the Bowflex last year, but held off using it as everything I had read said adding strength training during marathon training wasn’t the best move.  This is going to see much more use this year than last! (In fact, I have already done my first session of the year!)

2) Personal Trainer.  I really wished to run my first marathon on my own, with no trainer – and I succeeded in this! Now in 2014, I plan on getting a personal trainer to help me with my workouts.  I am really excited about this one!

lottery3) Win the Lottery.  Now, I admit I have very minimal control over it.. But  I am REALLY hoping for this “lifestyle” change.  I promise, I am not one of those people who claim it won’t change me.. For one thing – without working – think about how much more time I will have for running and working out!

My list of races will be up soon for 2014!  One a month at least, with distances from 5k to a marathon!

How about yourself? Any lifestyle changes for the coming year?

About

I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
