I guess you can see that blogging wasn't a big goal for 2017. Ha.

I'm not sure where it will end up on the 2018 list either, but I can surely start out right.

I could fill you in on all that happened since my last post in June, but really, who cares?

Let's do what new years are for and start fresh.

What am I going to do with 2018?

A friend of mine, Annika, ran her first marathon last year. While accomplishing that goal she achieved a total distance run over the year of 1004 miles. That seems like an awesome goal. I'm going to try to run 1000 miles this year.

I checked the calculator and that is an average of 2.7 miles every day. I ran 3.3 today so, WOOT, I'm beating the average. Of course that will last, right?

Amazing out there today panting and wheezing along in 32 degree temps. It feels like I never ran more than 5 miles in my life. Every tiny incline is like a mountain climb and my legs feel rubbery after 2 miles.

Sigh. Good goals are never easy. If awesome was easy, everybody would do it.

What else?

I want to install a dishwasher. First time in like 9 years we will have a dishwasher. That's a big one.

I want to finish the book I'm writing.

I want to weld something.

I want to build that pizza oven I've been daydreaming about. Sarah tells me I have to build a back deck first, sigh. This goal thing is going to be hard. Sounds like I will be busy.

Oh well. If awesome was easy...

Better get busy. Only 996.7 miles to go
