12 January 2012

steely resolve.

This time last year, I sat on my bed in my shed in Jose Ignacio and made three resolutions for the new year. (You can find the original post here.) They were:
  1. Learn to surf
  2. Learn to play guitar
  3. Become a better horseback rider
Obviously, I failed miserably at all of those.

This year, I'm going to set my sights a little lower, and make my resolutions both challenging and doable. Here goes:
  1. Run a 5k. I don't think I'll ever be capable of running a marathon, or even a half-marathon. Just look at me. But a 5k is something I can definitely do if I keep running regularly.
  2. Learn another language. This gets tougher for me every year because I'm lazy. The easiest way to do it would be to go to a new country and immerse myself, but I'll probably have to settle for downloading a CD. The next question is, which language should I choose?
  3. See three new countries and a new continent.
Here's to making 2012 the best year ever!

Want to run the Dorothy Dash 5k in April in Olathe? I have no official plans to return to KS this year, but I might have to make an exception for that race weekend. :)

That sounds perfect for me! Hopefully I can be ready to go by then!
