Happy New Year 2016!

Yep!  Once again, I tend to think of February as the 'fresh start' to the new year.  Work is just too busy in January and if anything that trend is getting worse.   I mentioned it here in 2015 and here in 2012.  So, now it's February and life is returning to normal.

In 2014, I used some pretty specific goals or resolutions and met or made good progress on most of them. I was less specific in 2015 and unsurprisingly ended the year feeling like I didn't accomplish as much.  I definitely think writing down goals is important.  January was so busy that I just haven't even had the time or focus to really reflect, but for sure these goals are on the list.

  • Finally compete in the Ramblin Rose Raleigh triathlon, have already registered and have purchased a used bike (since I was without one after the hybrid was stolen at ECU)
  • Possibly run another sprint triathlon in the summer
  • Run another 5k (although I did run one on Thanksgiving) and finally run a 10k.
  • Backpack with G (and hopefully both kids)
  • Return to Bear Island in the Fall, for 2 nights this time

Here's to more adventures in 2016 that make me smile!
