Be more awesome than last year....

My first post here was about my goals for the year. These are truly goals and not really resolutions. I think my actual resolution is to BE MORE AWESOME THAN LAST YEAR!

This morning I went to the Commitment Day 5K downtown. It was COLD, only 7 degrees when I left home and 10 degrees when I arrived to pick up my race bib. I considered running part of it but honestly I was so cold that I wanted to stay bundled up and I knew if I ran part of it, I would be way over dressed. AND more honestly, I am a little scared to run again. Weird, right? I know I need to start again because I really do want to run again but I am afraid that it is going to hurt again and I'm not going to able to do it. If I can't run, then I can't meet many of my goals for the year. Sigh. Well, it is time to get over that and start running again. I am going to do so this week. I am going to step out of my comfort zone and even try to run on the treadmill.

Anyway, back to my original story about the Commitment Day 5K. It was a great event put on by the gym I recently joined. When I joined, they gave me a t-shirt for the run. I don't feel right wearing a t-shirt from an event I didn't do, so I had to sign up. The whole idea of the Commitment Day run was to make a commitment to health in 2013. I knew I was already committing to making this a year of health. In fact, I had already set up my goals. I couldn't figure out what I was going to commit to in order to make this a great year. I mean, 2012 was AWESOME and I accomplished so much. 

So, 2013 I have goals but what was my focus going to be for the year? Well, when I came home from the walk, I saw this posted on my FaceBook newsfeed and thought "Yep, this is what I am going to resolve to do this year."

So, my official "resolution" is to be more awesome than last year!

Happy New Year all!
