Welcome to 2012

Yesterday, new year’s eve morning, I joined David and John and hundreds of others at Lake Chabot for a run.  We ran the 5K, and it was pretty good.  It was a beautiful day!

This morning, January 1st, we did it again!  I  got up at an ungodly hour and went with David very early to help set up.  After a couple more hours of hanging around, it was finally time to run.  I wore a light backpack to start getting used to added weight (although it didn’t really weigh that much), and my legs were a bit tired.  Although it was a good run, my time was slower than yesterday’s.  Nevertheless, doing two 5Ks in two days was a good goal.  Mission accomplished.

I’ve heard it said that the way you spend new year’s day says a lot about how you will spend the year.  If that’s true, my 2012 may focus on athletics.  Two of my resolutions are to complete a GoRuck Challenge and to do a century ride on my bike.  Wish me luck!  Better yet, wish me strength and endurance…
