Resolutions?

I made New Year's Resolutions. Okay, no I didn't. But I'm going to make some right now because I have to. I think it's some sort of law...

Uh.... well, er....

Okay, I tried. I sat here and looked at the screen and drew a blank, the same blank that I've been drawing the last few weeks when thinking about goals for 2011. Well, I mean I have goals for next year I suppose. I mean, I'm racing several races in 2011 so my goals will to train well for them. I know that's kind of vague, and you're not supposed to be vague with your goals, but I don't know that I need to change anything up with regards to my runs.

I tried to be all motivated for 2011 but then I think I'm already doing well to motivate myself. I'm really pumped for Surf City, am excited about trying to run two marathons in six weeks, am looking forward to the Camp Pendleton Mud Run in June, to the San Francisco Marathon in July... it's going to be a fun year, and that alone motivates me.

So, I guess I don't have any resolutions to make. I think the only real resolutions I need to make are personal, don't involve running and kinda dull really (I need to use my office more often, for instance; I tend to use my laptop in the dining room or living room... I know, zzzzzzzzzzz). So yeah, I think that's it. I don't want to force any half-assed goals down my throat, don't want to set targets when they're already set, don't want to do something just because everyone else does it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not perfect. No effing way. But things are going well right now with my fitness and all that good stuff, and so I don't need extra resolve when it's already there.

No resolutions for me either. Never do them.

I'm not a resolutions kind of person, either. I think they're kind of silly and sort of set you up to fail. My feeling is, if you want to set goals or make changes in your life, do it when the idea strikes you, don't do it just because you turned a page on your calendar.

The only resolution you need is to be even more awesome than last year and that is a given. :)

I like your honesty here. The best resolution you made was when you set forth to lose weight and you did it and stuck with running. That alone is awesome! And BTW, sorry for not following sooner. :(
