Happy New Year! I was thinking about resolutions and goal setting for the year. Here are the top three things I want to accomplish this year:
1. Run a Marathon
“But, Jason, you’ve already signed up for a marathon.” I know, but as Morpheus taught us, “There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.” We all know I registered myself to run the Rock & Roll USA Marathon on Saturday, March 16, 2013 in Washington, D.C. However, I’ve only registered so far. I haven’t run a marathon yet. So, I can’t check it off my bucket list until I’ve actually done it.
2. Play “Big Boy” Ultimate
I miss playing ultimate. It’s not just the sport itself I miss. I miss playing for a team. I don’t mean the random groups of people I get (more or less) assigned to play with in rec. leagues. I mean a real team with real camaraderie and who conduct practices and travel to tournaments. I have a few teams in mind I want to try out for this year. I don’t know if I’ll end up playing professional ultimate or traditional club ultimate, but I do intend to play.
3. Travel to a Foreign Country
I’ve never been overseas. In fact, I’ve spent very little time in places that weren’t on the east coast of the U.S. I think this should be the year I finally get myself a passport and go somewhere new. I’m not necessarily thinking of running any races in other countries. I’m sure that would be a really cool way to see some sites, though. A lot of big races tend to showcase some of the more popular/famous landmarks in each respective city. I’ve always wanted to visit Italy. I’ve also been growing a desire to tour Greece recently. Yeah, I think I’m going to try to go someplace this year. I deserve it, right? Any suggestions?
So there you have it. These are my top three goals for 2013. What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
