Last night while running the last perhaps half mile of my race, the song that came up on my mp3 player was "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO. I had loaded lots of favorite, high energy music on my player and skipped over a few, but I repeated that one. Perfect pace and lyric for a New Year's Eve run with snow coming down...

Sun is shinin' in the sky
There ain't a cloud in sight
It's stopped rainin' ev'rybody's in a play
And don't you know
It's a beautiful new day hey,hey

Runnin' down the avenue
See how the sun shines brightly in the city
On the streets where once was pity
Mister blue sky is living here today hey, hey

What a great way to set a Spark for a new year! So I get up this morning and the sun is bright and the sky is blue... though very cold.

I feel very optimistic about 2013. Plenty of new opportunities and challenges. And I intend to embrace them.

I have one resolution: To run a 10K by year's end!

Best to the SParkverse!
