You have also been the most difficult. Interesting how that works out. Dear sweet 2011, you were full of victories and heartbreak, but most of all you filled my heart with joy, a sense of immense gratitude and reflection.
You will always remain the year of my proudest athletic accomplishment to date: my first half-Ironman.
I love you, 2011. But I am bidding you adieu.
What’s in store for January 2012? As I mentioned before, I’m not making resolutions… just setting some goals.
My Goals for 2012:
8) Be a better friend, son, grandson. (I tried to coax out “husband.” He didn’t budge. Tee hee.)
9) Do something really scary.
10) And do it better than anyone else.
I tried to tell the Expert that his #9 and #10 should be combined into one, because they are one thing… he said, “They are my goals, leave them be.” He’s right. I’ll add this one to mine: 11) Mind my own damn business.
