How'd it get to be 2009 already?

Egad! I haven't updated this blog since Thanksgiving. Oops. Time flies!

Well, since then I've started my new job, which is going smashingly well. It's no longer an ordeal to drag my sorry ass out of bed and get to work. I don't bound out of bed each and every morning, but it's more frequent than it has been in almost three years or so!

Usually the New Year is focused solely on resolutions. I also like to acknowledge what I accomplished in the past year. How's this:
1. I ran two of the fastest half marathons of my life this year (Calgary with Donna (2:38:56) and Fun-couver (2:40:56) by myself).
2. I ran 3 half's and 2 10K's this year.
3. I quit a job that I hated!! (maybe this should be number 1)
4. I survived (barely) the loss of my Doodlebug, but in the process gained a loving, playful, highly entertaining Nermal.
5. I'm slowly weaning off of the happy pills.
6. I've got a great network of friends!

What will 2009 bring?
1. A return to my goal weight!
2. I will run Vancouver, the Underwear Affair and Melissa's again. Maybe Okanogan too...
3. I'll continue to embrace the clean eating and 100 mile diet lifestyles.
4. I will continue my education, whether it be my masters (still not sure what to do about that...opinions/advice welcomed) or take French through the Alliance Francaise.
5. Travel...not sure where, not sure when. I've got 365 days to decide.
6. Yoga...daily (or as close to it as possible) and my yoga retreat in May.
7. I will also spend more time in the mountains. Skiing (downhill and x-country) this winter and hiking in the summer.

And with that, I'll end this first day of 2009. Bring it on!
