As this week wraps up, I find myself more & more eager and anxious to be home with my family.
It's been a tough week. Shouldn't the week before Christmas be easy? Everyone in a festive mood, work projects low priority, thankfulness abounding?
Even our beloved family cat Belle ran away for a brief period of time today! But she returned, so all is well.
Oh well- it's not about how we feel, but about the reason for it all, right? When you put it in perspective, it all fades away in light of the glorious gift we received Christmas so many years ago.
On that (lighter) note- let's talk resolutions!
I'm officially kicking off my "12 Resolutions for 2012" and I'm starting with...
....drum roll please...
Resolution #1: Complete A Race Every Quarter
So in 2012, I want to commit to a race every quarter. So far, I have two lined up: The Indoor Whole Person Sprint Triathlon in January; and the Oklahoma City Memorial Half Marathon in May.
And dual training for those races at the moment? Challenging. But in the best way possible.
Challenges will always come our way- even the week before Christmas. It's how we handle it that matters.
And when I feel healthy & fit- as I hope to in 2012- I feel ready to tackle any challenge that comes my way.
