Reflections circa 2006

Well, this time of year has me (OK, everyone) looking back at life and setting goals for the year ahead. Upon reflection I can see that I've changed a bit these last 365 days. Changed in a way that can only be described as being weird.

It's Kinda Weird that...

1) a 5k is a nice, short race.

2) any run that is less than 2 miles isn't worth doing.

3) I am now a smaller size than when I was in jr. high.

4) I feel pretty good about myself as a teacher. Granted, I still have lots of room for improvement but I am starting to feel like I know what I'm doing.

5) I signed up for another half marathon. Guess the last one wasn't punishing enough. This race takes place in Agoura Hills on March 31 2007.

6) I like races because they motivate me to exercise regularly. In other words, I race to train! Speaking of training, I just ended Day 2 of my 12 week training schedule. Based on past experience ...

7) I feel that it is important to include more hills in my runs. I can't even believe I'm saying this!

8) I do fartleks now.

9) I have an alter ego! She calls herself the Knuisance Knitter and foists handmade knitted objects onto friends and family! Consider yourself warned.

10)I realize that there are many more patterns out there I want to do than actually need. I mean, c'mon, I've just finished my 3rd purse. How many handmade knitted purses does one person need??

11)I'm not done with my current knitting project, but have begun to collect yarn and patterns for my next 2 (or 3, or 4).

12)A half marathon is not enough. I want to become a better triathlete this year.

13)ha! am just now thinking about my students!
