2019: Resolutions and Races

As we enter into the third week of January, many will have already given up on New Year’s Resolutions, where as I am still planning them out. I consider January a special month, in part because it is the first month of the year, winter is my favorite, and it is my birthday month. I used to give myself the entire month to think and develop my resolutions and then formalize them in a day planner at the end of the month. That tradition slipped through the cracks as life took numerous twists and turns over the past seven years. This year…. things will change.

Late in 2011, my grandfather was diagnosed with prostate cancer and learned it had spread to one of his lungs. Up until his diagnosis he had played tennis, visited the gym regularly, and ate a healthy Mediterranean style diet. Once diagnosed, he had surgery to remove part of his lung and then began chemotherapy. The chemo and cancer took its toll and he passed in May 2012 (He was 81 years old). Continue reading

On the ?nth anniversary of my 30th Birthday, I resolve…

I am planner, a list maker, a list checker-offer, and a goal setter. Instead of creating New Year’s Resolutions, I make Birthday resolutions. Since my birthday falls on the last day of the first month of the year, I feel like it is kind of perfect day. While I have many goals of all different kinds that I normally keep to myself, I am going to share some of them here.
