Although New Year’s Eve has never been my favorite holiday (it can seem like a whole lot of build up for a few anticlimactic seconds, haha), there is something to be said — something inherently exciting — about a new chapter. Looking ahead to twelve full, whole, exciting months packed with late runs, early swims, thoughtful bike rides along windy paths, and more.
Twelve months to accomplish, become, and build new goals, new ideas, and new accomplishments. That’s what I like to look at New Year’s as.
Instead of “resolutions” — I like to make a year-long goal sheet; delineating some of the things I’d like to accomplish over the next twelve months and how they can get accomplished.
Some things I’m looking forward to in January of 2014 and beyond…
- Ironman Lake Placid in July!
- Speaking at the Triathlon Business International Conference in January
- Nationals in April!
- Meeting some of the NJ YoungTri Ambassadors next week!
- YoungTri’s 3rd Birthday (and what’s ahead)!
- Summer races
- Harvard Triathlon’s spring season!
I think it’s important to remember that resolutions — or New Year’s goals — aren’t made or broken in a single day. They’re built; sculpted, developed, and changed over the course of weeks, months, and years. That being said, there’s no excuse not to start today 🙂 To take a moment — if you haven’t already — to write down what you’d like to accomplish over the next twelve months.
The “YoungTri New Year” starts on January 8th (our 3rd birthday)! We have a whole lot of new surprises in store for you that we can’t wait to share 🙂
What are some of your tri goals for 2014?
