Well it is nearly that time of year. The tree is up, the presents are wrapped and I have a mahoosive mug of mulled wine in front of me. It must be Christmas time! Where on earth has this year gone? Frankly, I’ve got no idea; time definitely speeds up as you get older!
I’ve been a bit remiss on the old blog-posting of late. I think the Christmas excess started a bit early this year (i.e. November), and while I’ve still been running and trying to focus on my goals for next year, the consistency has waned a little in favour of cosy nights in drinking tea and watching crap telly while the wind howls outside. So I’ve not had much impetus to write a post, as I’ve not felt as though I’ve done anything particularly ‘noteworthy’.
However, as the end of the year creeps ever closer, the desire to reflect on the previous months is always strong, and is met by an equal desire to look forward to what is yet to come. All in all, this has been a great year for me, with lots of positives to take away and build on next year. I don’t plan to talk about all that now though – i’m mulling it over and thinking of some concrete goals for 2014 (over and above the Big Sur marathon, which is still my main focus), so I’ll write a proper post about that in the New Year.
I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and a happy and prosperous New Year though. I hope Santa is good to you, and may all your dreams come true in 2014.
