Hey Happy New Year! (and belated Merry Christmas too)
My last post was certainly some time ago. A family health crisis through some of Nov and Dec kept things pretty busy. And now with things settled a bit with that and our schedule resuming tomorrow, it should be easier to get back into normal.
It is desperately cold here in the Canadian Prairies and again, I question my sanity in living here. If the roaringrunner didn't love farming, we may be living somewhere warmer with mountains and opportunity for year round training. Oh well, a girl can dream.
Don't get me wrong, I am very thankful for my life and where I am. But seriously, if some of you who live south didn't post SO many great pictures of the ocean, a green landscape, running in shorts and having adventures, I wouldn't have these problems! haha (please don't stop with the great pics- I am living through you) I won't even tell you how I have to dress to go for a run outside!

Despite the weather, my training has been rocking- will spill it all next post.

So, every new year bring about reflection. There seems to be 2 groups of people; those that make resolutions and goals and those that don't. I like to take a couple items from my bucket list and make them a reality for that particular year. I usually make a list with the following headings:
work, athletics, travel/adventure, spiritual, family, finances, personal qualities, nutrition
and then list some stuff under each that I want to make happen. The headings are not in any particular order. Some I need lots of time to think and others get filled quickly. Some headings have 1 goal, others have many. I am also very specific about what I am going to do to achieve that goal.
I don't want to set myself up to fail but I also know that it takes effort to make anything happen. You need to plan, adjust, research, learn, and challenge yourself and all this requires effort so it seems pretty simple to me that if I do nothing- that's what I will get.
My whole purpose is to be the best I can and to make each moment count. To enjoy this adventure I live - not to keep up anything or anyone but just to try new things and challenge myself, meet new people and learn.
Wishing you health, happiness and lots of adventures in 2015 friends!
