One of the things that I did in 2010 that really fell off the “important” list in 2011 was a dedication to exercising. In 2010 I started making sure I exercised, and I did a few 5K events, and topped off the year with a half marathon in December. After the half-marathon, my dedication left me. I finished another half-marathon in May, but that was about all that happened for the rest of 2011. Therefore, I want to make a goal for 2012. Get back to the gym. Get back to taking care of myself. Start doing fun things again. So, I’m thinking of trying to do one organized event per month for 2012. Here’s what I have so far, and hopefully this list will be more populated as I do more research. Would you like to join me? I’d love it!
