Just a friendly reminder to those wanting to do the GA ING full or half marathon prices go up on January 1st. So get a jump on your New Year resolution and save a few bucks.
In regards to goals and resolutions, my advice is to set the bar low. You are more likely to have success if you don't aim too high. You should also incorporate a goal or resolution that you will be okay with failing to meet. Some degree of failure in life is expected so it just makes sense to me to go ahead and incorporate the failures into your yearly goal planning. That is not called being pessimistic just realistic. Realism keeps your optimism from being too lofty.
Last year my goal was to be faster and my resolution to be a more positive person overall. I was successful in my quest for speed but I am still struggling with last year's resolution. Admittedly, it has been a bit difficult to remain positive with how much shit the end part of this year has thrown at me. But in my adopted optimistic fashion I am going to say bring on the New Year and here is to being lucky in 07.
With all that in mind here are my goals and resolutions for the New Year.
1.) Again, be positive--since I don't think I was totally successful on that last year.
2.) Enjoy the moments and not worry so much about the upkeep
3.) Stop making fun of Pat's hair--psst this the one that I am okay with not keeping.
1.) Run 2 marathons in a year.
2.) Run a 3:30 marathon
3.) Get my 10k under 42 minutes
4.) 1:35 for the half marathon
What are your goals and resolutions for the New Year?
I hope everyone has a great and safe New Year.
P.S. The pictures and posts from the Pink Pig, Santa, the Loser party and Christmas are coming. My main computer crashed and being recovered/repaired so it might be a while before I get those posts up. I am not certain what pictures were downloaded there and what are still on my camera.
