Should all goal-setting be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should all goal-setting be forgot, reprise for blob lang syne.
Although about half of the Bloblessness Project 2013 fell to shambles, the goals themselves were good. Things were chugging along swimmingly (ha — April.), until mid-summer when my non-training life took a series of wonderful turns.
Since last we spoke, this happened:
Then this happened:
And since then, it’s been mostly a lot of this.
Now that all that’s settled down a bit, and we’re here at the top of another promising year, it’s time to get back to the goals I didn’t manage to pull down in 2013. It is my sincerest hope for you that you failed as many of your 2013 goals as possible, not because miserly loves company and I’d feel better about missing out on my own goals, but because all goals are only worth one thing – and thats the satisfaction their achievement affords in our lives. My hope for your missed goals is that you found such satisfaction in your life that you abandoned them all recklessly with joy and great abandon. Here’s to another year of running trails paved with good intentions, PR’s dangling before us on the reachable low-branches, nutritious diets to fuel our many adventures, and lives rich enough to turn away from all that in favor of the things that truly matter.
