2017 has started off strong with a group run of 2.16 and then 2.17 miles with Best Foot Forward (and quick chat about sharing meals). My favorite restaurant trick is to split a meal with friend or eat half and take the other half home. The first November Project of the year was also a good one (pop-up at the Tribune Tower).
New Year, New Me? Ehh, I’m all about self improvement, year round! But it is the beginning of the year, so I’ve set some goals.
- Yoga! Finish Yoga Teacher Training and start teaching! That’s right in less than a month, I’ll be a legit Yoga Teacher with a fancy certificate and everything.
- Happiness/ Finding myself! Continue reining in the honesty/ keeping the filter on. 🙂 Continue doing things that make me happy- Running, Yoga, Brunch, nutrition work, etc.
- Race Smart! Since, I’m still currently injured, I’ve committed 2017 to year of short distance races. Oh hey 5k!! 5ks and weird distances only! Pss…I’m also excited to be a Chicago Athlete Ambassador (look for race recaps from me on their page).
Races currently on the books:
January 28th: F3 5k– Holy Smokes, I’m really training for it. It’s only taken me 3 attempts! 2 years ago, I volunteered. And last year, I was unable to train.
March 11th:Get Lucky 7k– A unique distance and cool swag!
April 15th: Quarter Marathon– My ONLY marathon of the year.
April 23rd: Good Life Race– I missed this race year. I’m glad to be doing it this year. It’s Oak Park’s finest!
May: TBD. Currently looking at 2 5k options- One in Colorado and one in Chicagoland. Maybe both!
July: Chinatown 5k and Hemingway 8k
October: Chicago International 5k
December: Chi-town Rising NYE 5k
Here’s to 2017 being a great year!!
