A New Year: Happy 2011

I’m only twelve hours into the new year but I’ve already broken one of my resolutions. Remember that 5K I first thought I’d run, then decided I’d walk with my kids? I didn’t make it. I’ve been fighting a cold for the past week and it got the better of me today. I wasn’t totally certain I’d even make it without a fit of coughing, so I stayed home. I have to admit, I’m a little disappointed, though.

Still, I am focusing on the positive. My HONEOWP initiative. My friend A.J. Brown blogged about it today, making him a true HONEOWP, but then I already knew that. Check out his blog here: Type A.J. Negative. So, with A.J. and Steve, my HONEOWPs now number three including me. And we’re only one day into the new year.

And I’m not giving up on the 5K, either. I plan to walk at least three miles with my kids today and I’m going to keep an ear out for another organized walk/run in the coming weeks. Maybe I’ll even stay well long enough to train to run it this time! In the meantime, I’m ready for the marathon of this year. I’ve simplified my resolutions to one: Face every challenge with everything I’ve got. If only because it won’t do any good to do anything else.
