2018 has been one big disappointment. I wrote earlier how nearly everything I planned crashed and burned. Sure, a few things worked out. My 37k Ridge trail race was great, and turned out to be the best race of the year for me. Another stand out was June’s One Day San Francisco 6 hour endurance race, where I finished first in my age group (out of one person, haha!). Even so, it’s the only age group medal I’ve ever earned.
But it’s nearly over, thank goodness. My experience is when it is really bad, as it had been, it’s followed by very good times. So, I look forward to some awesomeness in the new year.
I have a few goals for 2019. They are the following:
- I will lose the weight I wanted to lose in 2018. I didn’t quite understand how difficult weight loss is low that I’m older. But I’m ready for the challenge.
- I will do my first, second and third ultra races in 2019.
- I will go on my first out of town vacation in years in 2019. It is one I’m really looking forward to, where I’ll run a 50k at the foot of Mt. Shasta!
- Most importantly, 2019 will be more fun. I guarantee that!
I don’t expect instant magic when January 1st is here, but I do believe that the change in a calendar year creates a change in attitude enough to help bring about some good positive changes in my life.
I hope that 2019 is also a great year for all of you!
Happy New Year! Keep Moving Forward!
