I'm sorry, but Resolve is a carpet cleaner a New Year's Resolution never changed my life, it never made me a better person. The only one that I ever heard anyone stick to was the father of a friend of mine (before he was the father of the friend) made a resolution of mine that he was going to sleep with 50 women in the upcoming year. He said, "it took getting two in the last week, but I did it!"
So, I'm not going to make any resolutions (I've got too much running and working out to do to emulate my bud's dad), but there are a few things that I'm going to try to do:
1) Be a better dad. Ali-Girl is 13 years old. I love her, and there is always room for improvement as a parent, always.2) I am still going to try to get to the gym twice a week. It's a key to Slam success, it's easy to do the things we like, but the gym for me, it's torture.
3) Now that I have worked and coached at Tampa Catholic for 1 1/2 years I am not going to keep being sheepish about using the coaches area in the gym and I'm going to start running to school and then using the coaches shower. In 2005, a big key to my success at Western States was that after I won my way into the lottery, I ran to school, 3.5 miles, almost every day. It's only 1.5 to TC, but I know plenty of long cuts if I need them.
Ok, if anything else needs tending there is no reason that I can't add on as needed, 1/1/08 is not a magical date, I can "resolve" issues anytime!
