So I don’t normally make New Years resolutions because I think they’re normally kind of impossible to keep, but this year I made some goals for myself. I think I was kind of inspired by this calendar my sister got me for Christmas. It has a topic for a different list for each month and the one for January said: “Cool things I’m going to do this year” and I wrote down —
– Run a 5k
– Volunteer regularly
– Finish crocheting blanket
– Read 50 books
So far I’m on the right track for completing the 2nd and last ones; the 5k one is going to be the most challenging. I don’t have the right type of clothes for running outside in the cold yet, and once I get those I’ll need to find some serious motivation. I’m kind of hoping that telling a bunch of people I plan on running a 5k will force me to actually do it since so many people will be holding me to it.
