New Year = new____?

I guess I am a bit late in joining the new years resolution train.  Really I don’t like making resolutions as I generally forget about them within a few days,  but since I will be posting mine up here for the world to see (BTW…why are so many people hitting my page from Pakistan in the past few weeks?) I will have more motivation to keep with it.

So in no particular order here I go.

Run in at least 10 races this year.  I will target 3 or 4 as goal races, the rest will be for training and to get reconnected to the running community.

Be more involved with getting my family fit.  My wife runs, and daughter plays a lot of soccer, but I want to take it up a bit.  Going for hikes as often as we can, biking to the store instead of taking the car, getting my daughter more involved with running, and getting my indoor loving son out playing more sports.  With Miles the dog nearing 12 months old, pretty soon he will be able to join us in running, which Ridgebacks were made to do.

Eat better.  I say this all the time, but it is so much easier to pick up something from the drive thru, or throw a frozen meal in the microwave.  This resolution will make huge changes in my mood and training ability.

Keep doing yoga, and specific strength exercises for my hip.  ‘Nuff said.

Be more focused at work.  Wont go into detail on that here.  My dark little secret. (I am very deep and complex!)

Spend more quality time with the wife.  She likes touring microbreweries…doesn’t she?

Ok, I don’t want to put to much on my plate and set myself up for ultimate failure, so I will end it there.  If I could add a few to a subcategory it would be look for opportunities to move to Colorado or the Northwest.  Get to 10% bodyfat.  Only get coffee when I need it, break that habit.  And oh yeah, brew my own beer.  Oh, and FINALLY get the flame tattoos on my lower legs.

About runfaraz

I am a guy who loves to run marathons, and has been gifted with exceptionally slow genes which makes for mid pack finishes in races. If I don't run I become an unbalanced manic fool, so yes...running is my prozac. I believe that the key to a happy productive life is balance. Balance in all areas of your life. If one area is out of balance, all others go out of balance. Come back often as I love to see the hit counter go up!!! View all posts by runfaraz
