    How are those New Year’s resolutions coming?


    So we’re 10 days into January and I have to be the jerk that asks.  Most people seem to have an unspoken rule that is something like this: if people are doing well with their resolutions, they will bring it up themselves; if they’re not, they don’t want to talk about it.

    I had this whole giant thing written about New Year’s Resolutions, but it just went off in way too many directions for one post.  So I will stick with this instead: any time you set a goal for yourself, cut yourself some slack. Remember that it takes time to build or break a habit.  If you’ve slipped up, don’t use that as an excuse to give up.

    If you’re trying to eat better, remember that every bite is a chance to make a healthier choice.

    If you’re trying to establish a new workout routine, every day is an opportunity for a do-over.

    Whatever it is, it’s not black-and-white, just give it another shot.  There’s no pass or fail – only where you were, where you are now, and where you’re headed.

    So, how are those New Year’s resolutions coming?

    A runner for just over four years, Karen has already completed a marathon, two half marathons and a variety of 5k and 10k races. She describes her first marathon - the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon last September - as "a nightmare." However, she met a very interesting person in the process - a man named Sydney who was running his 152nd marathon! Although the race didn't go as well as planned for Karen or Sydney, he showed her that no matter how experienced a runner you are, you can still have a bad day. "Does that mean we shouldn't bother to prepare, or maybe just shouldn't bother at all? Of course not!" says Karen. "In the end, it is what we make it." We like her optimism!
