To resolve or not to resolve? Such is a question that seems to plague a good number of runners and non-runners alike when the calendar year turns (man, does anyone else feel like fate has made a flip-book of our calendars and is racing through them like if she doesn’t watch the horse run in a circle or the bunnies bounce around, or is that just me?).
In my world, resolutions aren’t limited to beginnings of years (or ends, depending on how you look at it). Just as all good things must come to an end, I also believe all good things must come to a beginning. So I suppose I don’t actually have to announce a new way to get my living on. Except it’s fun to, and I’m not one to purposefully ignore a good reason to be different and potentially be better.
With that in mind, a quick list of plausible resolutions for 2012:
– Learn to play racquetball and go to at least one evening of the game at the YMCA or anywhere else racquetball is played.
– Put air in my bike tires.
– Be honest with time I have and stop trying to be everywhere at once (which leads to me disappointing everyone instead of just a few people).
– Stand up more at work and even try exercise. (Today I did jumping jacks in my office. I’m not even kidding).
– Stop shopping at Whole Foods and make the effort to get to Trader Joe’s despite it being farther away. Just as healthy, way less pricey.
– Run in at least one new country.
Anyone else feel like they want to resolve something? It’s okay. You can. No judgement zone here. You’re lucky. It’s 2012, you’re alive, and you can be as kick ass as you desire to be.
