Not really into resolutions, but I do always think about what I want in the new year. This year its pretty simple.
This seems a little daunting, but its not unreasonable given my salary and the amount of debt I have. I just have to remember my goal and not use my credit cards. I’ve already taken them out of my wallet so that’s a first step.
I’ve settled on Vancouver USA and Portland. My first marathon in 2010 was Vancouver and my second, the same year was Portland. It will be interesting to recreate that drama as the runner I am today, who is a lot more confident than the chick from 2010. Add to that Running Girl is coming out to run Portland again and wants me to run despite the fact I could, single handedly bring the rain down on the event since every time I’ve run it the sky has opened and dumped torrential amounts of rain. She HAS been warned though.
3. To take three trips this year.
As much as I’d love the third trip to be San Francisco or Hawaii, because of goal #1, it will likely be Cannon Beach. Blue Eyes and I are planning a week long trip to Hawaii in 2015 (which has everything to do with goal #1) so you can’t leave before than Ms. Lynch… Not that I think you will, I’m just saying….
4. To do good in school.
The end goal being my Masters. Life changes are ahead but not for some time since I work full time and have a life. I’m embracing this journey with everything I have. While my end goal is my Masters I realize that the journey to that goal could lead in other directions I can’t even imagine right now. I’m open to it all
I spend way too much time fretting about things completely out of my control. Its my goal to stay in the moment and just be grateful.
While there are other things to add, i.e., lose 8 pounds, get another tattoo and eat less cheese (after coming off 104 days 100% raw I can’t stop eating cheese…which explains the 8 pounds) those things are just fluff to an already sure-to-be spectacular year!
