So, its my birthday today & I'm 34 officially. I know people who are older than me who read this won't think 34 is old, but think back to when you turned 34 & I bet you felt old at the time! (Sorry if that offended anyone, just making a point) so this birthday has been a tough one to wrap my brain around. The last one that was like this was when I turned 20....that year went okay so here's hoping this one does too!
I have some things to tackle during the next 12 months:
1. Be better to my body. I run - a fair amount - but I don't think I fuel my body very well. I ask it to do stuff but if I don't treat it right its just gonna say NO one of these days. So....guess what body!?!? I pledge to treat you better by giving you plenty of awesome food, stretching more, and (after The summer RW Run Streak) taking days OFF from running, cool huh?
2. Be competitive over what matters aka don't be competitive over every little thing! I pledge to choose my battles with this one. As much as it would totally rock, I do not need to always be first with everything. If I can keep that in mind & focus on doing my best & pouring my all into the things that truly matter, I will be better off & probably less exhausted all of the time.
3. Sleep more. This ties in to #1 and #2. Being better to my body by sleeping more (clearly this will be a challenge as I am typing this blog at 12:45 in the morning) and focusing on not doing EVERYTHING will mean I have more time to me, so I can sleep!
That seems like a good start to my 34th year of being on this awesome planet :)
