Denver got hit with snow on Thusday/Friday. 15 inches of the stuff in the metro area. Thankfully our coach moved our run to Sunday and I got in a long, arduous 14.5 miles along the Cherry Creek Bike Trail. It was beautiful!
So on with the new year! I do love a new year. It's a new beginning, time to reflect on what is important to you and what you would like to accomplish. I never feel pressure about it. I know a lot of people try to avoid setting goals and resolutions. However my personal belief is that it is a perfect time to express your goals. So here's three of mine.
- RUN a sub 5:00 marathon. This might take a while to accomplish - it would be a huge accomplishment for this very slow runner. But I'm working to give it my best in time for the Colorado Marathon on May 6th. And if that isn't in the cards, then in the Fall.
- EAT in a way that supports my goals. I started keeping a journal to track how my body responds to what I eat. I want to eat foods that my body loves. I actually ate cauliflower and brussel sprouts yesterday. Really. I'm not sure it will be a regular occurrence, but who knows? I'm learning it isn't about some perfect macronutrient breakdown and that no matter how many books I read, the only expert on my body is me.
- DATE people I meet through the people I already know. I can't keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect a different result. So I'm on hiatus with the online dating thing. I'm just trying to put out there that I'm looking and seeing if people who know me can connect me. Fingers crossed. I have one email contact so far.
