Final Thoughts on 2013………

So as this year of 2013 comes to a close, I have a few final thoughts. Never to really be one of those truly introspective people, this is a bit out of my comfort zone. However reading all the blogs and tweets in the last little while I figure maybe I can do this too! 

On Family: 

Family is of course the most important thing in my life. I have a beautiful daughter who is 10 years old. Smart, witty, athletic, beating to her own drum. She can really teach me a bit about letting go and living in the moment. That is one of my resolutions for 2014. And I need to stop my need for control over others. This is a huge resolution for me as my personality is Type A++ and I not only expect a lot from myself but from others as well. I am very aware of what I say and do and that particularly for my 10 yr old, I need to step back a bit.

On Work: 

Work has been great for me ever since I went out to practice on my own at home. I am almost always consistently busy and get great pride out of helping others and having referral networks through those I have helped over the years. 

On Fitness:

Thankfully this is not a resolution I need to make! I actually need to be tied down sometimes. Motivation is never lacking and I get up each day looking so forward to moving my body and improving and maintaining my fitness and speed. This year’s big goal is to qualify for the 2014 70.3 World Championships in Mt. Tremblant. I will do this by racing in Syracuse in late June.

So there you have it. I will continue to write a monthly article for Mizuno Run Club on various topics. I love to write about things I am passionate about. I am looking forwards to a new year and new goals and personal changes.
