Hope everyone is doing ok. I can’t believe how fast the days are flying by. How has it been 10 days since my last post? Let’s see..here’s what I’ve been up to since I ran the Fall Flat 5k:

I had an annual physical. I’m healthy! So all my aches and pains just mean i’m old!

I ran a bunch. All goal-less miles. (More on this later in the post)

5 miles on Saturday just because I had an hour and  the sun was out.

I spent Thanksgiving at Mr. SOTSS’ mom’s house. Her and her husband just moved into their home this year and were excited to host a big gathering. I managed to spill an entire glass of white wine on myself but otherwise the evening was fairly typical.

I’m thankful for my health but not my clumsiness! Actually I wrote I’m thankful for coffee but didn’t take a picture of that leaf. 🙂

I completed my annual holiday card design which I’ll reveal later this month but here is a picture of Duncan I took for the idea.img_7651

So 2017 is just a month away and I’m feeling like I should have a better handle on my goals for the year. Not just in running, but in life too. As I ran today I felt so ambivalent to how many miles I should run. Maybe that’s a good thing? But ambivalent is definitely not a word I want to use for long. And I feel like it’s the way I’m acting toward a lot in my life.

I’m not sure if I’ll be running any full marathons in 2017 but I just took advantage of Cyber Monday deals and registered for the 2017 NJ Half Marathon in April. So that’s good. #patsherselfonthebacknjm-recipt

I wish I felt ready to lay down some big goals for 2017 for but I’m not there yet. I just know I should be focused. Workwise, I know I want to gain some new clients in the first quarter of 2017 which means I need to market myself better. I know I want to work on my flexibility and strength more which means I need to cross train better. And I definitely want to cook more and eat out less. I guess this is a good start.

How do you put your thoughts into action?

Do you like to set “new year’s” goals? I don’t like the whole resolution thing but I always feel a new year is a chance to start fresh.

U.S. peeps: Do you feel that the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas flies?

  1. The time between Christmas and Thanksgiving flies for me each year, although the years that Thanksgiving is later are even worse! My son’s birthday is the first of the year, and my anniversary is usually the week before Thanksgiving, so November, December, and January are all a blur!
