I made TONS of resolutions last year, and really didn't end up keeping much of them. *sigh* So I'm starting off with less so I can have a better success percentage by the end of the year??

1) Run 2 Half-Marathons - I have already signed up and paid for the two I plan to run, so hopefully this will keep me accountable for those. I'm already done with week 1 of training for my first one too!

2) Spend 30 minutes to an hour a day working on my Spanish. I have Rosetta stone on my computer (I know reviews are mixed about the program) all the way up until level 5. I'm currently about halfway through level 2. I'm hoping that when I get done with all 5 levels (or even 4 levels?) that I will be comfortable enough to call up my sister and talk to her in spanish (she's practically fluent).

3) This goal goes hand in hand with the one above. I want to set foot on a new continent this year. I have so far been to North America (DUH), Europe and Asia. If I am comfortable enough in my spanish I would really like to go to Peru. I also would really like to see Australia too. Seeing as though my only time to go is during the summer (or Australia's winter) I want to try and stay as north as possible since it will be warmer. And Northeast Australia just happens to be where the Great Barrier Reef is, which I would really like to see before it disappears.

That's it! I think 3 is a good number, right?

    Good things come in threes. They sound like solid goals with a clear trajectory for getting them done.

    You've already started your half training, so I'm guessing the first one is coming up relatively soon. Do you mind sharing what race you'll be running? I just ran my first half in October, and I enjoy hearing others' plans and experiences.
