It's that time again...

Time for some New Year's Resolutions...

To me, this year has flown by. I only had one New Year's resolution last year which was to run more in 2009. I started running in the summer of 2008, participated in my first 5k event on Thanksgiving of '08, and vowed that I would run more and get moving more in 2009. It started out well, I ran in a 5 mile run around St. Patrick's Day, and I participated in another 5k run in May as part of a team for work, but some medical issues kept me from my real goal of participating in a half-marathon in the beautiful mountain town of Lake Placid in June of 2009.
After missing that, and getting into summer vacation mode I lost the motivation to run, and didn't really get back into it until the fall when the air lost that awful humidity of the summer and the mornings were back to the cool temperatures I really enjoy running in. I participated in a 5k on Thanksgiving again, and have since acquired a treadmill which I hope will keep me motivated through the winter. It helps that my husband has also started running and pushes me to run on weekends, and get up early before work to run.

I haven't really put much thought into 2010 yet, but I would like to keep on running, and push myself to lose some weight and be "fit".

I'll have to put some thought into making some New Year's Resolutions... and I'll post them here so that maybe it will motivate me to keep them :-)


  1. We must be on the same wavelength... I just posted my resolutions tonight. :)

  2. Actually Jess, I read your post that had your photos from the last year and it got me thinking about it. I liked how you summed up the year in photos, I'm working on something similar because I thought it was a great idea!

  3. :) Just saw the new post. Love it!
