Hello 2017

Well, Its been a year since my last post. I often thought about posting this past year but I just didn’t take the time to put my thoughts in writing…something to strive for AGAIN this year.

Is anyone else noticing that every year seems to be a “bad” year for people.  Year after year its “good riddance”, “looking forward to the new year”, “…starting over” yada yada yada…

I feel as though every year is a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. Some years are more “up” and others more “down”. I really dont have a feeling either way about 2016. It was a roller coaster ride. I struggled and am still struggling to get my fitness back, I ran my first and last 50 miler (a redo from last year’s DNF), I found love, I lost love, I DNF’d another race, I ran a trail marathon in my home state of Michigan, I found that I really enjoy mountain bike racing, and I had to quit (hopefully temporary) running. I could say that this year sucked and was a struggle but then I would be overlooking all the good things and to be honest, there are people struggling with bigger issues than mine.


This past week I have been dreaming and looking forward to the change that the new year brings.  I choose not to dwell on the short comings of 2016 but rather to build from what I have learned from the challenges. I am excited for new adventures and new opportunities. I am not going to say “Good riddance”,  I choosing to continue to say “No regrets”. Moving forward.
