Happy New Year!

2jan15
2014 was such a great year for me. I ran my very first half marathon in Berlin in March, in the summer I got to run around in Central Park in New York with my dad, I ran my second half marathon in Oslo in September, got to run a bunch of long runs with my mom, then in November I ran my very first full marathon in Firenze. The year had it’s ups and downs, but with all the positives I’ve almost forgotten about the negatives. I’ve grown so much as a person and I feel happier and more confident with myself than I’ve ever felt before.

We’ve said goodbye to 2014, and welcome a brand new year. A year I have decited will be a great one! For as long as I can remember I’ve been making New Year’s resolutions and this year won’t be any different.

1. Break out of my comfort zone. This is going to be hard for me. I’ve never been good at doing things I don’t feel comfortable with. But I know I’ll become a much happier and relaxed person if I just dare to jump.
2. Get a new job. I’m 22 years old now, and I’m tired of only having a few days of work and low salary. I don’t want to feel like crap when people ask about what I do and all I can answer is “I pretty much just run.. And I work on Mondays and some weekends”. Haha. I want more hours and more money!
3. Dress nicer. This probably sounds silly, but to me it’s dead serious. I always wear sweatpants! Sweatpants and comfy tops. It’s not like I wear ugly clothes, my tops are nice, I just need to retire the sweats. I’m like a hobo in Ralph Lauren, haha.
4. Be a better blogger. My blog is still pretty new, and I know I need to improve it in many different ways. More posts, share more than just the daily run, etc.
5. Get a six-pack. I don’t need anything extreme, but I want to build some great visible six-pack abs. Not only because I think it looks awesome, but because it’s a proof that I’m eating right and training hard.
6. Think positive. I’m not gonna let negative thoughts get to me anymore. I’m not gonna worry about things, and just try to enjoy life instead. A positive mind means a happier life.
7. Stop wasting money. I buy so much crap I don’t really need. I need to start saving money for the things I need or really want instead of wasting so much money on stupid things.
8. Eat healthier. When I eat healthy I feel so much better about myself. I have more energy, I run better, my skin looks cleaner, I am happier, and life is just better.
9. Become a better runner. I’m gonna work harder on running faster, push myself a lot more, and try my best to PR all distances this year during races and training.

Bring it on, 2015!

Tell me some of your New Year’s resolutions.

    Happy New Year!

    I think one of my resolutions should be to sit quietly and actually write down my resolutions! You have a good list. I, too, should work on NOT wearing workout clothes as everyday clothes–they are just so comfortable!!
