Looking Forward to 2019 - Risk Taking and Resolutions!

So - every year, I always try to sit down and write my New Year’s Resolutions. More often than not, they’re just a list of things that I vaguely wish to accomplish in the coming year, including, but not limited to, travel, running accolades, and self-care rituals. I’m not always good about following up on my resolutions, but I’m always excited to look back at the end of the year and see what I did accomplish. When I was searching the blog for the post that I had written for the upcoming 2018 year, I pulled up the 2017 post as well. Even though I didn’t get to many of my 2016 resolutions in 2017, what I did realize is how many of them I crushed in 2018! So, I thought it would be fun to do some year over year analysis and look back on what I accomplished this year!

Honorable Mentions from 2017 - 2017: The Year of Living Well

So, like I said, there were a few things that I didn’t get around to in 2017, but I smashed them in 2018 so they definitely deserve an honorable mention!

  • Run a new marathon PR 

    Not just one, but TWO! And, not only that, but I smashed my marathon PR two times and qualified for the Boston Marathon!

CIM : A Unicorn Story
  • Stop chewing on my fingernails!

    This just might be one of my finest achievements yet! Happy to say with the use of SNS on my nails, I’ve overcome my terrible finger biting and they look normal! Huzzah!


  • Qualify for the NY City Marathon (with a half - 1:32:00)

  • Break 20:00 in the 5k

  • Find a running & life balance (I promise this is not at odds with the above-mentioned goals!)

  • Read at least 10 more books

  • Visit more National Parks

  • Take one trip that is not running-related

  • Visit a new country

  • Turn the blog into a valuable resource for everyone!
