January 1, 2015.
Welcome to a new year at the Urban Dr. Mom. I stopped making new year resolutions a long time ago. I learned that I am unlikely to really change who I am or what I like to do so making a pledge to myself to try to stop doing something seemed silly.
Instead I set goals. I set my sights on something and go for it, I don’t try to take something else away. This year I am going to be stronger, faster, more fit. I am going to run 21.1 km. I am going to spend as much time with my friends as I can. I am going to be more patience with my children. I am going to be me. I am going to be free.
It’s going to be an amazing year.
I started it off with a 5 km run. It wasn’t a “resolution run“. It was just a run. My body needed to go. I listen to my body. There are days when I just don’t want to run and there are days when I can’t stop thinking about a run so I go out and do one. Today was one of those days. Despite the mild hangover and the sore throat and the bitter cold wind, I suited up and did what had to be done.
