A new year, a new resolution

Last year, or maybe it was two years ago, my new year's resolution was to cross train each week. Since it was concrete (you either do it or you don't), reasonable, and something I like doing, I picked it up easily, and it is now a part of my routine. This year, my big running resolution is to do yoga once a week.

I have had mixed experiences with yoga in the past. In theory, I want to like it, however, in reality, I never do. The numerous benefits of yoga are everywhere, and I want to experience all of them, however, usually I either get bored or impatient and leave the studio unsatisfied and vow never to go back. Hopefully, this year will be different.

In addition to yoga, I plan to use my foam roller regularly (not just when my knee hurts) and do push ups and planks regularly. Finally, I will be running the C and O Canal 100 Mile race again, and my goal is to run it in under 24 hours.

As with any resolution, I am starting with an optimistic attitude and positive thoughts. Stay tuned in 2016 to see how these resolutions go and experience many other running adventures with me!
