So we are in the last week of 2016, can you believe it? Pretty soon we will be saying goodbye and welcoming in a new year, full of hopes and resolutions. Before that though, let me pause for a moment and think about the year that is almost over. I promise I'll keep this brief.
2. I find more joy in helping others with running (especially new runners), than focusing on my own goals. I've had the honor of helping a number of people this year - build training plans, navigate common pitfalls, provide motivation - and it's made me a better runner and a better person.
3. It's way better to know your limits than push it and get injured. I did a lot more "listening to my body" this year and it really paid off. I stayed healthier even if I didn't break any land speed records. I am really okay with that plan!
4. Long runs feel way better with adequate fueling. Thanks to the incredible Wendy, I am now firmly on the Tailwind train. Already, I can tell it's making a big difference in my energy level. I'm looking forward to seeing what this will mean to me in 2017.
I'm joining up with some of my blogger friends for Tuesdays on the Run! Check them out - Marcia, Patty, and Erika.
